Geller, H. ; Washington Center for Public Policy Res., Washingtin, DC, USA

The author discusses the transition caused by the advent of competition and divestiture of AT&T. He predicts that in the next five years, that transitional period will probably end for AT&T, which would then be effectively deregulated, and that difficult transitional problems with the regional Bell Operating Companies (BOCs) will continue. He argues that US governmental policy in dealing with those problems will continue to be diffused and confused.<>
