This paper identifies and describes the principal debates that are now forging our future telecommunications policies. The authors first provide a background discussion of recent telecommunications policy changes. They then offer an overview of the current status of existing policies in both the long-distance and local exchange telecommunications markets. Finally, they provide a perspective on the alternative policy scenarios that may unfold. To place this discussion in a more familiar setting, they draw upon a parallel between telecommunications policy and some long-standing attitudes regarding child rearing.
