  I agree that the D channel packet network has to be in place, but other than
  that do you agree with me?  In California, for example, where Pacific Bell
  and I believe GTE already have packet networks, would these telco's need to
  make any other hardware or software changes to accomplish this type of
  bandwidth on demand?  Or would the only telco change be to lower the charges
  for packet to make this economically feasible?
