ABSTRACT
This article reports on the attempt of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to resolve roaming issues between nationwide and regional rural communication carriers. The most recent examination of the roaming situation came in the wake of Sprint Corporation's acquisition of Nextel Communications Inc. Small operators have asked the FCC to probe roaming agreements of various combinations of carriers in what is known as a Section 403 investigation, because they believe such a study would show discrimination is occurring.
