Report says more competition needed for wireline phone service

This report from TURN (The Utility Reform Network) has some excellent information about competition (and the lack of it) in wireline telephone markets, based on a study done in California. It is a lengthy report, but the Executive Summary does a good job of summarizing the findings. They key result was that there is still too little competition for phone service, and that for a variety of reasons, many households can't just drop wireline phone service and use cellphones--meaning that cellphone service is not an adequate market counterbalance to monopoly telephone service.
