While I don’t have much faith that it will be resolved to the benefit of consumers, I am pretty happy to see that the issue of whether or not the big telcos can be sued under antitrust laws is going to be resolved by the Supreme Court once and for all. Any customer in a big city can tell you about the terrible service given to competitors by the market’s dominant carrier; in New York City, the alternative providers are all still at the mercy of Verizon, whether you’re talking about standard phone service or higher-bandwidth connections. It’d be nice to see the legal system back up the pro-competition laws, and give customers the power to demand adequate service.
