SBC then proceeded (as permitted by the Telecommunications Act of 1996) to acquire fellow baby bell Pacific Telesis, the Regional Bell operating company serving Nevada and California, in 1997 and the former independent Bell System franchise SNET (Southern New England Telephone).
SBC then announced plans to acquire Ameritech, the Regional Bell operating company serving Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin,, and told the FCC that it would allow competitors access to local markets where it had had a monopoly if the FCC would allow them to acquire Ameritech.
In 2002, SBC ended marketing its operating companies under different names, and simply opted give its companies different doing business as names based on the state, and it gave the holding companies it had purchased d/b/a names based on their general region.
SBC also stated that the termination of the special access circuit prior to the expiration of the optional payment plan term for which Globalcom committed itself would trigger payment of the termination charges under the federal tariff.
SBC asserts that the ICC's determination that the termination charge was "forward looking" led it to conclude that the charge does "not appropriately address the continuing purchase of the same facilities for the balance of the term commitment," regardless of what form those facilities take.
SBC argues that once its conduct and intentions are placed in the proper context, it becomes impossible for any court to find it in violation of Act section 13-514.
