"My lawyers tell me that the most important question that regulators have to
ask when reviewing our merger [with Sprint Corp.] or any merger is whether the merged
company can raise and sustain a 5 percent price increase in any relevant market. As to the
‘New WorldCom,’ the answer is ‘No.’ There are two reasons I can make this unequivocal
statement: There is too much competition and too much capacity."

Surfing or Working?
Surfing on the job could become a problem. Nearly two out of three companies have
disciplined employees for misusing the Internet while nearly one-third have fired
employees for such infractions, according to a January survey by Websense Inc. (www.websense.com) and the Center for Internet Studies (www.virtualaddiction.com).
The survey polled 224 human resource directors of companies ranging from 6 to 224
employees. More than half (56.3 percent) of those polled admitted that employees misuse
the Internet. One-third (34.4 percent) reported not being concerned about it, but a
majority (82.6 percent) of respondents reported having a written Internet use policy.
