ABSTRACT
The article considers network neutrality rules as points of contention in the national telecommunications bill in the U.S. The rules might be applicable to wireless carriers like Verizon Wireless and Cingular. In the wireless industry, facilities-based carriers have set leasing rates which are high for potential competitors. There is a big possibility that wireless companies that rely on access to other wireless company's networks and competitive local exchange carriers have similar concerns.
