TelePacific strongly endorses Chairman Wheeler's proposal to update the FCC's rules to protect customers, competition and public safety during this time of rapid and far-reaching change in the technology and capabilities of the networks carrying the voice, data and internet communications that are the lifeblood of today's business.
The uncertainty regarding the impact to customers during the transition to IP networks has been of great concern to us and other competitive carriers. While we are deeply engaged in that transition as we bring new services to businesses, we are also very aware of the potential for the widespread disruption and restriction of choice for consumers if traditional copper networks are retired through neglect or shut down without equivalent services and capabilities offered to replace them. This proposal provides the clear directional blueprint carriers need to invest, compete and serve customers.
Chairman Wheeler provides a cogent and clear regulatory framework that ensures that "advances in technology will never justify abandonment of the core values that define the relationship between Americans and the networks they use to communicate." We look forward to the healthy competition and expanded ability to bring customers the services and communications they need to grow and profit in a rapidly evolving marketplace.
