Also known as Regional Holding Company (RHC). In the United States, each of the seven regional companies formed by the Modified Final Judgement (MFJ), which broke up the AT&T Bell System effective January 1, 1984. Each RBOC comprised one or more of the 22 Bell Operating Companies (BOCs) that previously were wholly owned by AT&T. Over time, each RBOC fully absorbed its component BOCs, creating a single legal entity with a centralized management structure. As Cincinnati Bell and Southern New England Telephone (SNET) were not wholly owned by AT&T, they were divested as standalone operating telephone companies. Table R-1 maps the BOCs into the RBOC organizations.
