Re: What's up with the AT&T brand?
said by tmc8080:I honestly don't know where the "other Bell" fits into things. Used to be the seventh child of the break-up: USWest. Bought by Qwest, which was, itself, bought by CenturyLink.
So the breakup of MA-Bell was more of a DIVORCE (bells assets were TEMPORARILY removed like children into foster homes) & PROBATION rather than an anti-trust breakup.. Now we have AT&T and Verizon (rest of the country's bells, you dont' count anymore.. redheaded step children ;-> ).
