I believe Worldcom owns the majority of their fiber and I think all three
lease fiber from Qwest.  Qwest has fiber in the ground nation wide.  I just
don't know how much is lit.

I was under the impression that there was one fiber giant that actually
owns its own fiber, and that its name is AT&T...  Who is Qwest???  

Anyone have any stats on how much MCI, Sprint, WCom actually own?
