• Broadband / IP Transition

    As broadband internet access services have become a necessity of daily life, the public switched telephone network has been evolving to an IP network to support the higher speeds and capacity demanded by broadband consumers. NECA believes the industry and policy-makers need to promote and sustain this transition in a manner consistent with the core statutory objectives of protecting consumers, promoting competition and ensuring universal service, as well as review regulations in measured steps.
