"That's when AT&T was broken up, forcibly by the Justice Department in the landmark antitrust lawsuit."

In case you've been asleep for the last 30 years: AT&T has reassembled itself over that period via a bunch of holding companies and a couple of renames, regained local loop monopolies over most of the USA and is no longer bound by that pesky 1930's "universal service for all" settlement.

Take a closer look at that man behind the curtain.
