While following through on some other issues, I ran across this reference.

 It was an erroneous assumption. FCC chairman William
 Kennard had announced the opposite just the day before:
 "The FCC has repeatedly stated for the past decade 
 and is stating again today  that it is NOT repealing the
 ISP exemption that [prevents] Internet service providers
 from paying per-minute charges to local telephone
 companies."

Can anyone point me at the FCC regulation, or other documentation, for this ISP exemption?
