ABSTRACT
The article reports on changing consumer choice that is regulating telecommunication systems. About a million U.S. wireless customers have substituted cell phones for their landlines. More long-distance minutes are now handled by cell phones than by long-distance providers. By yearend, more than 1.5 million customers will have substituted an Internet phone for a landline. Cable TV phones have displaced about 4 million phone company connections. Technology is set to swamp regulation's ability to manage competitive entry under current frameworks, and regulation is becoming a drag on further rapid innovation.
