    GTE will never be the dominant provider in Northeast Ohio. The former owner
    of Cleveland's first ISP is a telecomms consultant who lives in Medina, which
    of course is GTE/Verizon territory, and his impression was always that GTE
    North treated NE Ohio like a bastard child, and would have been happy to
    exit the market completely.

    NOONE is in Verizon's PRL anywhere there's a Verizon presence in SC,
    either. Many places you can stand with a toyphone and watch the Alltel
    customers chatting away while your Verizon toyphone keeps beeping in and
    out of sync with NO SERVICE on the screen....1/4 mile from a CDMA Sprint
    tower and 1/2 mile from a B-side Alltel tower.

    For the Verizon flacks, Oakbrook Section of Summerville, SC, in the
    Charleston area. Walk 8' inside any store and the phones go dead in full
    view of the Sprint tower the phones USED to roam, painlessly, over to.

    NOT any more.....
