The FCC ruling on number portability may have little effect on an already competitive market.

Connection Failure


ou manage statistics - I'm trying to manage home finances. AT&T offers 'wireless home phones'. I've had a wired line for 25 years and the monthly cost is approximately $60. The wireless offer with enhanced features and service for $20 per month. The phone number will remain the same. If I switch to wireless, my home phone number is (by law) no longer allowed to be in the local directory. I'm mad about this restriction. The FCC is painting the rules with a too-broad brush. Provisions should have been made for me (a consumer)to elect his own destiny and risk tolerance. A directory listing should be optional to free Americans.
