I am on the "other" side of the Arkansas River, where I can not get any AT&T DSL OR HSI from Charter Cable (currently on Wildblue.) Maybe this will open the door for an expansion into my area.

The boards of directors of SBC Communications Inc. (Research) and AT&T Corp. (Research) were to meet Sunday to vote on a more than $15 billion stock deal in which SBC will buy AT&T, according to sources familiar with the situation.

The telecommunications companies, which have been in talks for days, have come to a tentative agreement, a source familiar with the situation said. The combination would bolster SBC's business with large corporations and spell the end for AT&T, the once ubiquitous "Ma Bell."

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission ruled Monday that telecom giant SBC Communications must open its broadband network lines to competitors at a fair price.

The ruling comes as SBC pushes a bill in the Indiana General Assembly that would eliminate the IURC's ability to regulate the deployment of broadband services such as high-speed Internet.
