It's hard for me to say. I don't get the impression folks are becoming
CLECs anew much anymore for the purpose of ILEC interconnection and UNE
resale, but CLEC status that affords other rights-of-way (e.g. WiMax,
fiber providers) seems as popular as ever.
For ITSPs, I think finding good existing CLEC partners is a more
practical strategy than becoming a CLEC themselves, unless their market
focus is really, really small and highly specialised in a particular
area, and they have the large multi-site customers necessary to make it
 Notwithstanding the recent FCC ruling about how VoIP providers can
own numbers directly--it remains to be seen how that will actually be
implemented, and whether the regulatory burden will be similar to that
of CLEC in practice.
