Bellsouth was thought by many to be the most friendly to CLECs of all
the divestiture RBOCs. Traditionally, in its 9-state operating area it
was possible to do multi-tandem access; that is, you didn't have to
have trunks to all the intra-LATA sector tandems in order to terminate
to an end-office in that sector, as long as you had transient groups to
the LATA access tandems.
I have heard that the AT&T crowd does not take kindly to that and that
this option doesn't exist in ex-SBC territories, or anywhere else. Can
Does anyone have any information on how that's being approached since
the merger for new ICAs and/or if they're taking the opportunity to
demolish that when Bellsouth-era ICAs are updated and/or renegotiated?
Are folks that went up in Bellsouth days grandfathered on MTA?
