The Worldcom carrier group still uses the WilTel name. As do the
Worldcom trucks.  How can that be if Williams owns the name?  Also, the
fact that Worldcom owns the name for another 7 years ( or is it 7 years
total- I can't remember) was told to me by one of the Executive VP's
with Williams Communications Group.

Speaking of Wiltel, 1998 marks the end of their non-competition
agreement with WorldComm.  Wiltels' Martin intends on using more
of their "lazy assets" to become a player in a big way once again
in the carrier market.

Careful, Worldcom owns the rights to the name Wiltel for (I believe)
another 7 years.  It's The Williams Company.
