49 Federal Communications Law Journal 227 (1996)
The FCC is charged with the task of encouraging competition in the telecommunications industry, yet it must also assure that competition remains free and fair to consumers. Various long-distance providers are taking advantage of their deregulated freedom by engaging in "slamming." The author proposes a more effective form of consumer protection through the return of a short-lived FCC rule which required written customer authorization before the customer's long-distance service could be switched.
