DOJ Takes a Look at Telcom Industry

It is in the early stages and nothing may come of the review but the US Department of Justice is going to take a look at the Telcom industry to see if there is any abuse going on.

Again, things are very early, but the Wall St. Journal is reporting that the DOJ will be looking at exclusivity deals and whether or not Telcos are unduly restricting the type of services that can use the networks.

I agree with the article that it would be tough to bring an anti-trust suit given that there are several large companies and neither really has a market advantage of the rest.   But then again, maybe the pressure from a possible action could bring about some changes.
