TelePacific Communications strongly supports the actions taken today by the Federal Communications Commission to adopt a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) and declaratory ruling designed to protect consumers, competition and public safety in the ongoing technological transitions in the communications industry.
"The FCC's actions are a strong and cogent affirmation of the key role it has protecting public safety, ensuring open and fair competition and safeguarding the rights of consumers in a world where rapidly changing technology can quickly erode their fundamental protections," says Dick Jalkut, the CEO of TelePacific.
"As a carrier navigating those rapid and powerful currents of change to an IP-based communications world, we're particularly attuned to the needs and concerns of our customers in business, the not-for-profit and government arenas who depend on the latest innovations in our nationwide existing copper infrastructure for the broadband access that drives their communications. We wholeheartedly agree that wholesale input should be required to provide competitive carriers equivalent wholesale access going forward. The importance of uninterrupted last-mile access to customers can't be overstated. These actions by the FCC promote the open competition in the marketplace that drives innovation and provides those critical services.
"We applaud the FCC's actions and will continue to work with the Commission as it leads the way providing equal access for all, driven by the unparalleled engine of fair and open competition between communications providers."
