VoIP Industry Laud Ensign Bill As Recognition Of New Reality

Industries Laud Ensign Bill As Recognition Of New Reality

July 28, 2005

By Drew Clark

The telecommunication and technology industries reacted favorably -- as had been expected -- to deregulatory telecom legislation introduced Wednesday by Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev. But the bill also garnered some words of praise from the cable industry.

"This bill recognizes that the world has changed and consumer-driven markets work better than those managed by the government," said Peter Davidson, senior vice president of Verizon Communications. "The Ensign bill puts consumers first."

"The Ensign proposal would bring telecommunications law up to date," said Herschel Abbott, BellSouth's vice president of government affairs. He added that the company will work with Ensign and Senate Commerce Chairman Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, "to ensure its speedy passage."

"Senator Ensign's bill ... would apply market-driven competitive principles to all communications markets" and provide clarity to SBC Communications' anticipated investment in video services, said Tim McKone, SBC's senior vice president of federal relations.

And, on the cable side, Kyle McSlarrow, chief executive officer of the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, said the legislation "treats like services alike."

Although differing with Ensign on the issue of high-speed Internet networks provided by local governments, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., co-sponsored Ensign's bill because of its strong deregulatory nature, an aide said. The measure would set some limits on municipal broadband; McCain has co-sponsored legislation to promote such services.

Following a Wednesday speech on telecom reform at an event sponsored by The New Republic magazine, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., told reporters that he had not seen Ensign's bill -- but acknowledged that "it does conflict with a few of the views that I espouse."

He pledged to "work through" those differences with the Nevada senator; Ensign is the chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee's Technology Subcommittee, while Kerry is the senior Democrat on that subpanel.

Randolph May, a senior fellow at the Progress and Freedom Foundation, called Ensign's bill, "the most deregulatory, market-oriented bill ever introduced in Congress, and commendably so."

Said May: "The bill is based on the underlying premise that now, as we move full-steam ahead into the digital age, the traditional economic regulation of most communications services that was appropriate in a monopolistic environment is no longer necessary." Instead, the marketplace would regulate communications providers, he noted.

"It is a very, very strong package, and we are very grateful for Sen. Ensign's leadership," Walter McCormick, chief executive officer of the U.S. Telecom Association, said in an interview.

McCormick called it "a measured move to market-based competition. The telephone industry will remain subject to regulations for some period of years that the cable industry will not be subject to."

Ensign's bill also would require that broadband providers let consumers access any legal content -- or use any voice-over-Internet protocol, such as Vonage. That "network neutrality" provision could boost support for the bill among consumer groups and the technology industry.

Information Technology Industry Council Chief Executive Officer Rhett Dawson called the bill a "good starting point for the debate in Congress. We share [Ensign's] goals of removing barriers to innovation, promoting competition, and sparking growth in the tech and services sector."

Telecommunications Industry Association President Matt Flanigan also commended Ensign. And Roger Cochetti, group director for public policy for the Computing Technology Industry Association, said, "We are particularly encouraged by its call to keep Internet applications and information services, such as VoIP, free from regulation."
