The proposed $37 billion merger of telecommunications giants WorldCom and MCI, which would be the largest consolidation in business history, raises serious antitrust and competitive issues that affect every U.S. consumer and business. The combined company would control 50% or more of the Internet infrastructure and one-quarter of the long-distance U.S. telephone market. It is likely, moreover, that the new company would continue WorldCom's practice of targeting business customers and other high-volume users at the expense of residential customers. This study argues that regulators should address these concerns now to preempt the creation of another historic, AT&T-like telecommunications monopoly.
