A Transparent Transition

By Brad

Our Honorary Chairman Rick Boucher talked with Ted Gotsch for (subscription only) TR Daily about the coming IP Transition. From Gotsch’s story:

Rick Boucher, now a partner and head of the government strategies group at law firm Sidley Austin as well as honorary chairman of the Internet Innovation Alliance (IIA), told TRDaily in an interview that the FCC is largely on the right track when it comes to proceeding with the public switched telephone network-to-IP transition, but that the agency needs to help figure out how to facilitate the transition.
Having a single, transparent proceeding where these various policy questions are involved provides a more meaningful way to participate than having many to follow,” the former Democratic House member said.
