Yes, but times have changed since the divestiture of AT&T in 1980. There are lots of choices. Internet Telephony and cellular telephones did not exist then. Satellite/GPS communications were in their infancy and extremely expensive. Skype is a major threat to these guys...

I agree that having two companies (and Qwest) in control is not good, but there are still alternatives.
