FCC Sees Internet-Based Platforms as the Future
The FCC has formed a committee to look into policy issues that will arise as telecom services move to Internet-based platforms.

The Internet Policy Working Group is made up of commission employees from several bureaus. They will contact state regulators, consumer groups and public safety organizations about potential issues.

"Internet-based services are already revolutionizing the way consumers do things. By forming this working group, we hope to gain a greater understanding of how policy-makers can create rational policies to encourage growth in Internet services," stated Chairman Michael Powell.

Co-directors of the group are Robert Pepper, chief of policy development, and Jeff Carlisle, senior deputy chief of the Wireline Competition Bureau.
