Rewrite Telecom Act 1996?

1 Comment

The New York Times reports that Washington wants to rewrite the ill-fated 1996 Telecom Act. It is easier said than done, but it will be interesting to see if President Bush makes it a priority. From my point-of-view, well after flushing $750 billion down the drain, and handing over virtual monopoly to the big two Bells, who do we need to bother with any rules. Okay VoIP and USF are two reasons, but by the time these guys will get around to doing anything, by that time the technology would have leapt past them.

What do you think will be the central issues up for grabs if indeed Congress does rewrite the 96TA in the near future? Who will be the major players around the table and what do you think each of those players will seek to get out of the deal?
