Broadband Coalition Calls FCC Action Today To Suspend Pricing Flexibility Triggers ‘A Good First Step’ to Real Special Access Reform

(Washington, DC)—The following statement was issued today by former U.S. Congressman Chip Pickering, spokesman for The Broadband Coalition (www.thebroadbandcoalition).

“Suspending operation of the flawed pricing flexibility triggers for special access services is an important acknowledgement by the FCC that the current special access regulations are broken.  We plan to work with the Commission as they tackle comprehensive special access reform which will benefit businesses across America that depend on us for affordable, innovative and high quality broadband services. We know the Chairman has made the expansion of broadband and new innovations signature issues, and without the state-of-the-art solutions our companies provide, many businesses could be shut out of these new technologies.  We look forward to the FCC’s renewed effort to support competition in this marketplace in the near future.”
