SBC appeals FCC order

FRAMINGHAM (09/19/2003) - SBC Communications Inc. became the fourth regional Bell operating company to appeal the recent U.S. Federal Communications Commission ruling that, they say, lets competitors use their local access facilities at less than wholesale rates. SBC this week asked a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., to stop the enactment of the Triennial Review order that the FCC issued late last month, saying the ruling causes "irreparable harm" to its business. SBC joins the U.S. Telecom Association, Verizon Communications Inc., BellSouth Corp. and Qwest Communications International Inc. in filing the motion for a stay with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.
