It appears that AT&T's move to stop offering phone service may have made the FCC blink in the stare down over line sharing. Michael Powell is apparently now pushing an idea that would bring back line sharing rules in order to help foster competition. Of course, the Baby Bells who benefit from a lack of line sharing will cry foul. It appears they may have some FCC commissioners on their side as well, as the initial response was that the FCC can't simply bring back line sharing, but need to crank up the big bureaucratic machine again.
