1. VoIP NPRM - The FCC has adopted (but not yet released) a notice of proposed rulemaking to determine appropriate regulatory requirements for the carriage of voice communications over the Internet. Among other things, the FCC will be looking at the extent to which providers of these VoIP services should be required to meet disability access mandates.

FCC MOVES TO ALLOW MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR CONSUMERS THROUGH VOICE SERVICES OVER THE INTERNET. The FCC initiated a major proceeding to examine opportunities that allow consumers greater choices created by
