Consumers are driving the move to IP networks. The FCC should follow suit.

A couple days ago I wrote a piece for describing in, hopefully, layman’s terms what digital technology is, and how consumers are leading the transition from analog (legacy) based services to services provided via an Internet protocol (IP) network.

There are benefits from using that system of ones and zeroes primarily the efficiency by which more information can be stored and transmitted via IP versus the analog networks that we traditionally received voice services on.  These benefits are helping to spur American commerce in an increasingly knowledge-based economy.

Policy wise, it’s time for the FCC to catch up by ensuring unnecessary regulations from the analog era are not applied in the digital era.
