Z-Tel’s UNE-P Fix – flat fee


As the hand-wringing over the future of UNE-P continues, Z-Tel, a CLEC has written to FCC saying that it is willing to have talks with Bell companies, and offer them a “Twenty Dollar Solution”, which would provide Z-Tel access to Bell company networks for a flat, nationwide rate of $20 per line. According to Z-Tel, the Twenty Dollar Solution is a simple and comprehensive resolution to a number of telecom issues. Z-Tel was the first competitive phone company to issue a proposal following the FCC’s request and Z-Tel’s solution is the only comprehensive proposal that is open to public scrutiny. Quite a smart solution I think, if only the Bells would bite!
