  • Now: Fierce competition for higher profit customers between multiple facilities-based providers using various technologies. Inadequate support in high-cost areas for mid-sized ILECs.
  • Current regulatory regime is notsustainable. Reform urgently needed to reflect modern market realities, such as:
        • “Technology neutral” regulatory parity
        • Sufficient, sustainable, and explicit universal service/inter-carrier compensation
