6:20 PM -- A few things you should see before heading out for your fantasy NFL pre-draft meetings:
- Verizon: Link Hoewing's legs must be tired. He just spent 660 words dancing around the issue of whether Verizon is in favor of usage-based caps, like the ones other providers have tested in Beaumont, Texas. He concludes, sort of, that "these trials [are] a part of the continuing evolution of the broadband market." That's his unofficial non-committal opinion. Is this an early indicator that Verizon might back off from the stiff jab we highlighted yesterday?
- Junkets: The Oklahoma City Telephone Association is having its annual summer meeting in Myrtle Beach, S.C., which has more beaches and better golf than, say, Ada.
- Corrections, Clarifications: Zhone got a few things wrong in its public filing with the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) earlier this month. We reprinted the original table here, as part of the context of the news story. We'd like to present a slightly more correct version right here, with our corrections noted in bold:
Table 1: Are They Located in the U.S.?
|Alcatel-Lucent||No||Yes, partially. Mostly. Well, an awful lot, anyway.||No|
|Sources: Zhone, Adtran, Alcatel-Lucent, Tellabs, Calix, and Occam.|
