in select areas of the former Ameritech CLEC options are gone. Copper has been replace and its direct FTTH to the homes. No 3rd party NOTHING from at&t. Monroe Count Michigan was one of those areas. It was part of LightSpeed when they were showing that off.
And as far as CLECs go- they could argue since VZ and T are getting USF funds to build their next-gen networks (USF is a tax)- they should have access to them. But they're not smart enough to do that.
