   Re: IRU Divestitures in connection with the AT&T/BellSouth Merger

   Dear Ms. Marsh:

   The Wireline Competition Bureau and the Enforcement Bureau of the Federal
   Communications Commission have completed the review of the proposed
   divestiture of an indefeasible right of use to fiber strands to the
   buildings listed in Attachment B to Appendix F of the AT&T/BellSouth
   Merger Order and do not object to the proposed divestiture.

   This lack of objection is based on a thorough review of all of the
   information you provided, including the documents submitted and the
   representations made by you in your letter of July 30, 2007. Our review
   was conducted consistent with the divestiture framework agreed to in the
   SBC/AT&T Consent Decree.
