Re: Rules and Regs for a LEC's and Non LEC's

I was told by various sources that unless the vendor of my choosing is a
LEC of some sort, they cannot back-haul production traffic as a private
network, and that this is a FCC restriction regarding LEC licensing for
traffic/long distance etc.  These various sources do not have actual
data to substantiate these claims, but have created enough questions in
my mind to research this subject further.
It's the other way around.

RBOCs (note, not ILECs) cannot move inter-lata traffic without being
approved by PUC in each state for "interstate long distance". (I believe 
this is part of 1984 MFJ).

CLECs have no restrictions on that. Neither do non-CLEC ISPs.
