I’ve been invited to testify next Tuesday before the Senate Commerce Committee on voice over IP. I’ll post more details when I get the formal invitation.
I expect a more challenging environment than the FCC hearing in
December. Some members of Congress are worried that, unless VOIP is
subject to legacy telecom regulation, grave damage will be done to
universal service, public safety, and national security. This is
simply not the case, but the concerns raise legitimate issues. We
need to separate fact from fiction, and social policy from the demands
of special interests.
