there are numerous ILECs that were never "Regional Bell Operating
Companies". GTE is a large example. smaller examples include mom-and-pop
operations like Taconic Telephone in Columbia County, NY. there are many,

that's why the ILEC counts on a per-state basis can be upwards of 40, as
in some of the examples others have given.
