Abstract Once upon a time---and I know this is getting hard to remember---the telephone business was regulated. In the United States, there was AT&T, and not much else. You used the telephone pretty much the way AT&T wanted you to. In 1983, as part of an antitrust settlement, AT&T split into eight companies: seven regional phone companies and AT&T, the long distance company. During the 1980s, companies such as MCI and Sprint grew to challenge AT&T in the long distance market, and competition started to generate more flexibility in the way you used the phone.
