FCC Takes The Reins On VoIP

November 10, 2004

By Staff

The US Federal Communications Commission has continued on the road towards taking a position on voice over IP services with a ruling that will see some VoIP regulated on the federal level, rather than by each of the US states.

The FCC said its ruling, which stated that Vonage Holdings Corp and some cable company VoIP services are not subject to state telecommunications regulation, "adds to the regulatory certainty the Commission began building" earlier this year.

But the two democrats on the Commission limited their support of the move to concurring and expressed frustration that the FCC is addressing VoIP in a "piecemeal" fashion, and that it has yet to have an overall VoIP strategy.

The FCC said that Vonage's DigitalVoice product "cannot practically be separated into intrastate and interstate components", meaning it should not be subject to potentially 51 different sets of regulation from the states and District of Columbia.

 FCC Vote Is Good News For VOIP

FCC Vote Is Good News For VOIP

November 10, 2004

By Ellen Muraskin

Tuesday's FCC vote exempting Vonage Holding Corp. from "traditional state public utility regulation" comes as no surprise and gives the VOIP (voice over IP) industry cause for celebration. In the decision, the commission stated that it—and not individual states—would decide which regulations apply to VOIP. The official order will be handed down in two weeks.

The FCC's five commissioners voted unanimously in favor of Vonage, with the two Democratic members, Michael Copps and Jonathan Adelstein, "concurring" but expressing some reservations about the regulatory decisions left unmade. These issues, including intercarrier compensation (fees paid between carriers for completing a subscriber's call); universal service fees to subsidize rural carriers, and emergency 911 services, are to be ironed out in the ongoing "IP-Enabled Services Proceeding." No deadline was given.

Even at this point, however, the ruling clears the way for existing VOIP service providers to continue their rollout into new markets. It encourages the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) incumbents who've launched VOIP services of their own. For business and residential customers, it portends a wide choice of providers and hot competition to differentiate based on customized services.

F.C.C. Takes On Oversight Of Internet Phone Services

November 10, 2004

By Stephen Labaton

WASHINGTON, Nov. 9 - The Federal Communications Commission seized regulatory control over Internet-based telephone services on Tuesday by issuing an order that sharply limited the role of state regulators.

In a unanimous ruling, the commission said that Minnesota could not impose regulations on these services. That included a requirement that one of the leading companies in the field, Vonage, must offer to all Internet phone customers emergency 911 service similar to that offered by the traditional phone companies.

The decision, if upheld by a federal appeals court considering the matter, would set the precedent of limiting state regulators to issues of consumer fraud, general commercial law and state taxes. Regulators in Minnesota and New York were blocked by federal courts when they tried to require Vonage to be certified by the states and subject to the rules that govern traditional phone services.

Telecom Turnaround

November 10, 2004

By Staff

The Bush Administration got off to a poky start on telecom policy, but Federal Communications Commission Chairman Michael Powell seems to be revving things up. The latest example is an Internet vote he won yesterday that has the potential to reshape the industry from the ground up.

At issue is a new technology known as Voice Over Internet Protocol, or VOIP. Put simply, VOIP allows consumers to place telephone calls over the Internet -- and it's growing like gangbusters. One of the leading providers, Vonage, requested that the FCC declare its product an "interstate service," and Mr. Powell won the votes to do exactly that.

Yesterday's ruling is the first time the FCC has exempted an Internet voice service from state regulation.

FCC Gives Vonage Interstate Status In Win For Internet-Phone Firms

November 10, 2004

By Staff

WASHINGTON -- The Federal Communications Commission Tuesday granted a petition by Vonage Holdings Corp. asking that its voice over Internet protocol, or VOIP, service be treated as interstate, putting it under federal jurisdiction.

The ruling shields Internet telephony services like Vonage's from state regulatory oversight, including similar Internet-enabled services provided by cable companies.
"What today's decision does is put the commission in a firm position of responsibility," said FCC Chairman Michael Powell.

Vonage Chief Executive Jeffrey Citron said in a prepared statement that "because the FCC has acknowledged the reality of the Internet -- which knows no state boundaries and no borders -- more people will enjoy the benefits of Internet phone service."

 FCC Exempts VOIP From State Rules

FCC Exempts VOIP From State Rules; The Action Gives A Boost To Internet Phone Call Providers. One Group Calls It Anti-Consumer

November 10, 2004

By Jube Shiver Jr

Federal regulators gave a big boost to Internet phone call providers Tuesday by protecting the rapidly growing service from state regulation.

The Federal Communications Commission voted 5 to 0 to give Internet telephony companies the sort of relative regulatory freedom enjoyed by the cellphone industry.

The unanimous decision -- rare for the FCC -- is expected to speed the rollout of voice over Internet protocol, or VOIP, which is hailed by many as the next frontier in the $300-billion telecommunications industry.

The California Public Utilities Commission and other states' regulatory agencies can impose some taxes and fees on Internet calls but are now precluded from imposing VOIP regulations that potentially would be conflicting.

Internet Phone Rules Curbed
States Can't Regulate Services, FCC Rules

November 10, 2004

By Leslie Brooks Suzukamo

States cannot regulate the rapidly growing, significantly cheaper Internet telephone services that are luring away the nation's telephone customers from traditional phone lines, the Federal Communications Commission ruled Tuesday.

The ruling does not answer all questions about what's widely considered to be the next big thing in telecommunications. But it opens the gates a little wider to an expected flood of offerings from major phone companies like Qwest Communications International as well as new competition from cable companies.

West metro's cable provider Time Warner Communications, in fact, will announce its own Internet phone service today for Minneapolis and some Twin Cities suburbs. Qwest, which began a trial Internet phone service in Minnesota last January, has promised residential service in its entire 14-state territory by the end of this year, while Comcast cable is testing its own service outside of Minnesota.

FCC Declares Authority Over States On VoIP

November 10, 2004

By John Woolfolk

Federal regulators Tuesday declared authority over the states in governing Internet phone services, a move providers called crucial to fostering growth, innovation and competitive pricing in the budding industry.

But the Federal Communications Commission's 5-0 vote left for later key decisions on how Internet phone companies will be regulated with regard to 911 emergency calls, consumer protection and telecommunication access subsidies for the poor, disabled and remote.

The FCC order declared Web-based phone services known as Voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP, to be interstate in nature and therefore under federal rather than state jurisdiction.

FCC Clears Way For Internet Phone Growth

November 10, 2004

By Paul Taylor

US regulators ruled yester-day that a New Jersey-based internet telephone service company is exempt from some regulation by US states, a move likely to clear the way for more competition in the market for internet calling.

The Federal Communications Commission ruled in favour of Vonage Holdings, a broadband VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) service provider, in a move designed to protect Vonage and other consumer VoIP providers from piecemeal state regulation.

"This landmark order rec-ognises that a revolution (in telephony) has occurred," said Michael Powell, the FCC chairman. He said internet voice services had "cracked the 19th-century mould, to the great benefit of consumers".

Vonage pioneered consumer broadband VoIP services in the US market with its DigitalVoice service and now has about 300,000 lines in operation.

US Federal Communications Commission Says No To State Rules For VoIP Calls

November 10, 2004

By Gareth Williams

The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has decided that state regulators will be unable to place their own regulations on VoIP and that any regulatory decisions will be taken at a federal level. This means that states will be unable to force companies such as Vonage to make payments towards universal services or adhere to emergency phone-service rules.
