AT&T shuts down AllFreeCalls… for now!

by alec on February 17, 2007

Superior Iowa (pop 142) is a tiny place.  You can imagine the reaction at Superior Telecom Coop to AT&T’s lawsuit.  Tiny rural telecom company…. huge nationwide carrier…. small pockets…. deep pockets….

I imagine they got some legal advice, concluded that AT&T might be able to win the suit, and shut down all of their upstart free calling services.  It must not be open and shut, however, since Irish entrepreneur Pat Phelan says AllFreeCalls will be up and running again on Monday.

It is also possible that they concluded that golden goose may be killed. Whatever the outcome of his legal action by AT&T, it is possible that Bill and Keep crowd may win their argument. Then there goes the whole pot.
