Local Telephone Competition (As of 06/30/98)

This is the first issue of the Industry Analysis Division's Local Competition report.  The report presents a summary of statistical material currently available on local competition, information from surveys conducted by the Common Carrier Bureau of the Federal Communications Commission (Commission), and information mined from other public sources. The Division will be undertaking additional analytical efforts to understand the development of local competition. This report, however, concentrates on presenting data on emerging competition in local telephone service markets rather than analyzing the underlying factors affecting its development. We present information in this report for all states. Where information is available, we present information for smaller geographic areas such as Local Access and Transport Areas, or LATAs.
