Bell Atlantic - Delaware Responds To Federal Court Ruling On IntraLATA Presubscription
September 15, 1997
ruled in favor of intraLATA presubscription. IntraLATA presubscription
enables customers to dial 1+ or 0+ a ten-digit phone number and have
that call routed to the company they select to provide their regional
toll service. Regional toll calls are outside the local calling area,
but are not as far as long distance. The following response statement
may be attributed to Joshua W. Martin III, president and CEO, Bell
Atlantic - Delaware.
"We are very disappointed with the court's decision, which puts us at
a competitive disadvantage.
"While we oppose this ruling because it creates an unlevel playing
field between Bell Atlantic and its competitors, the court has spoken
and we will implement intraLATA presubscription in Delaware
