It appears to the Securities and Exchange Commission that there is a lack of current and accurate information concerning the securities of Tel-One, Inc. (“Tel-One”), because of questions regarding the accuracy of assertions by Tel-One, and by others, in documents sent to and statements made to market makers of the stock of Tel-One, other broker-dealers, and investors concerning, among other things: (1) The company's claims about its prospects in the video teleconferencing industry; (2) the future price of Tel-One's stock; and (3) the involvement of persons in control of the operations and management of the company in efforts to tout, and inflate artificially the price of, Tel-One's stock.
The Commission is of the opinion that the public interest and the protection of investors require a suspension of trading in the securities of the above-listed company.
Therefore, it is ordered, pursuant to section 12(k) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, that trading in the above-listed company is suspended for the period from 9:30 a.m. EST, January 23, 2002, through 11:59 p.m. EST, on February 5, 2002.Start Signature
By the Commission.
