On the eve of President Bush's second-term, the VON (Voice Over Internet) Coalition has sent a letter to the President.
The letter, which you can read here, contains six requests. When you strip out the wonk language (as I have done for you)here's what theVON Coalition is asking the President and his government colleagues to do and not do:
Don't regulate us.
Recognize that when it comes to VoIP, borders are irrelevant.
Reform access charges, rather than stick these "legacy rules" on VoIP.
Don't apply traditional telephony regulatory standards on us.
Let VoIP subscribers access and use the "content, applications and devices" they want without interference.
Realize that VoIP is an economic driver.
Oh, and did I say, "don't regulate us?"
