Short Take: Bell Atlantic in cramming crackdown

Bell Atlantic has booted 27 small telecommunications providers from its billing system after complaints that the companies were involved in cramming offenses. Cramming involves putting false charges on a customer's bill unrelated to actual telephone use. Bell Atlantic suspended another 59 companies for cramming earlier this year.
