    somehow I believe MCI's long distance customers will continue to have long distance service with or without MCI..and no, MCI was obviously not real solvent. Funny how this works, huh? Also, I think WorldCom has quite an ISP business. What good is "stability of addressing" without infrastructure connection? Do you think these people and businesses using Worlcom connection are just going to go unserved should Worlcom just go away?

    MCI makes headlines because it is publicly traded and has millions of customers. There are lots of little LD providers and ISP's out there. Lots. Many face financial difficulties every day causing mergers, buy outs, or bankruptcies. The market place adjusts and the whole system considered "stable". But, for some reason, it is believed that "stable addressing" can not accomplish the same feat even though far less complicated or technically involved. Probably because its "stability" is controlled by a few parties that refuse to let go....AT&T accomplished this for decades. In light of WCOM, care to go back?
