Hi all,

I am investigatng the reciprocal compensation model in use today
between the ILECs and some independents. Specifically, many companies
are offering multi party conferencing for free as a side effect of of
this reciprocity fee.

Seems like there were some disputes about it in the past :

So is this still a valid business model or is a crackdown by the ILECs
in the cards ?

All info appreciated.
