      • 1949 antitrust suit  1956 consent degree
      • 1969 FCC Carterphone decision
      • 1960s, 70s – technology advances lead corporations to demand increased communications flexibility

    • Anyone can lease our fiber, including you Mr. Incumbent
    • This is the model that worked in Stockholm

    • Reduce digging in streets
    • Stimulate economy with lowest infrastructure cost
    • Breakeven for long term
  • 23. Stokab coverage today 5000 km of routes, serving 29 towns 1,200,000 km of fibers 300 cross connect sites 6000 antenna sites
  • 24. Fiber to every block < 2001
  • 25. Take Aways
    • Net Neutrality is the wrong fight
