"Recovering CLECs Flirt with Profitability"

"Recovering CLECs Flirt with Profitability"

"After three years of market turmoil, the competitive local exchange carrier market may be on the rebound. Though not motivated by any one particular driver, over the last few months several CLECs — especially smaller regional carriers — have started hitting financial milestones and going free cash flow positive."


(Link from Neil Lehto)

This matches what we've been seeing for a year -- small regional CLECs are doing OK. That's because many small markets did not see the massive fiber glut that occurred during the CLEC building boom in the so-called "NFL cities" (cities big enough to field a pro football team).
