It's Not Yet April Fool's Day...

The Wall Street Journal reports [subscription required] that the Republican FCC commissioners are jointly urging the warring parties in the Triennial Review to "negotiate, not litigate."

It is difficult to call any transaction occurring against the current regulatory backdrop as "market-driven." That said, the FCC urging the parties to the telecom wars to negotiate their wholesale business relationship is a positive start.

Kudos as well to the Chairman and Commissioner Martin for an apparent rapprochement. Now, they need to use their bully pulpits to get their respective cheering sections to negotiate.
