Where should we open the next Carrier? Fairbanks Alaska?
How about Cedar Rapids, Iowa (McLeod) or Butte, Montana (Touch America)... "

[email protected]!! I forgot about those. Well, they are nearing (or in) bankruptcy.
McLeod, ISP who got out of control.
Touch America, Energy plant operator who made the brilliant move to sell all the energy plants (right before California energy crisis), and even more astutely, spent all their money on trying to make a phone company (right before the telecom crash). Real insightful crowd up there in Montana.

re: Williams Ponders Bankruptcy Doesn't seem to have worked any better for Sigma Networks than Tulsa has for Williams.

re: Williams Ponders Bankruptcy Williams, granted, was affected by the demise of the telco market...but they could have been a better ATM competitor had they listened to their vendor for what was best for them to better support their own customers and problem resolutions...

re: Williams Ponders Bankruptcy cbenton, what do you mean by "better ATM competitor?" They carry inter-LATA traffic for other carriers over a GX550 based network, so what did they do wrong? I'd like to know.
