The United States cannot allow fear of an uncertain future to jeopardize its ability to win the race for a global bandwidth advantage.
The Internet is transforming communications markets around the world. The U.S. is now competing in a global market that is transitioning to all-IP networks – with or without us. If we want to remain competitive globally, we must accelerate the deployment of all-IP communications infrastructure capable of meeting the challenges of today and tomorrow.
Our approach to Internet transformation should not focus on a particular jurisdiction, a particular market segment, a particular company, or a particular result. It should focus on consumers. Like the DTV transition, the transition to all-IP networks will present challenges. But stagnation is not a viable option. The United States cannot allow fear of an uncertain future to jeopardize its ability to win the race for a global bandwidth advantage. Internet transformation is the key to unlocking a better future for every American. The only question is whether the FCC is willing to open the door.
