That is correct.....  Pac bell and Ameritech bid zero cost because they 
get income from the NAPs by charging people to attach.   bellcore gets a 
small piece of change for providing research coordination with the two rbocs.

The NAP providers (Ameritech, Sprint, and PacBell) do get some government

providing services to R&E type stuff.

Ameritech doesn't receive any government funding for the Chicago NAP.  I
believe that Bellcore receives some government funding.

I don't think that Sprint or PacBell get any government $$ either, but they
should confirm or deny that themselves.
