FCC Exempts VoIP Phone Service From State Regulation

FCC Exempts Voip Phone Service From State Regulation

November 9, 2004

By Paul Davidson

The Federal Communications Commission ruled Tuesday that providers of Internet-based phone call services fall under jurisdiction of the federal government and cannot be regulated by states, a step that could help boost the emerging services.

Commissioners voted 5-0 in favor of Vonage Holdings of Edison, N.J., which had asked the agency to declare the company's product an interstate service, giving the FCC regulatory control.

Vonage has been battling public utilities officials in Minnesota who want the company to register in the state as a telecommunications service, subjecting it to rate regulation and other state rules.

The ruling applies to cable, phone and other companies offering an Internet phone service similar to the one Vonage provides. The decision does not, however, preclude states from imposing some taxes and fees. It also does not address access charges, which are fees paid to local phone companies for completing calls sent via the Internet to conventional phones.

Vonage also had asked the commission to certify it as an information service, instead of a telecom company. Such a move would have a profound impact on the industry because it would mean providers of Voice over Internet Protocol, known as VoIP, wouldn't have to pay the taxes and fees that traditional phone companies do. The commission did not rule on that request.

The vote is likely to anger some local officials, who say the FCC is usurping local authority.

Among other things, the ruling means states can not force Vonage and other Internet phone companies to provide 911 service or comply with local consumer fraud laws, FCC officials told USA TODAY.

Vonage is the leading provider of a new crop of Voice-over-Internet Protocol phone offerings that are serving a fast-growing base of several hundred thousand customers.

Customers plug a regular phone into an adapter and broadband line. The voice calls are turned into data packets that travel over the Internet before converting back to voice at the other end.

Because there's no need to use costly phone networks, subscribers pay less than $30 a month for unlimited local and long-distance calls.

Last year, Minnesota utility regulators ruled that Vonage was a "telecommunications service" subject to their authority. That led the company to petition the FCC. A federal judge has overturned the Minnesota ruling. But a favorable FCC decision would help defend the company before an appeals court.

FCC Chairman Michael Powell has called for minimal regulation of Internet-based phone services to encourage their growth, saying they are more like e-mail than traditional phone calls.

Next year, the FCC could rule that Voip is an "information service" that should be free of most telecommunications rules.

The agency does plan to impose its own requirements that Voip services provide 911 and make their networks wiretap-friendly for the FBI. But state officials say they are better equipped to oversee issues such as 911 and consumer fraud.

"Our main concern is: What's left for the states here?" says Commissioner Bob Nelson of the Michigan Public Service Commission. State and local officials have flooded FCC commissioners with letters voicing concerns about the proposed ruling. One of their concerns is they could not collect revenue from Voip providers to subsidize high-cost rural phone service.
