One of the most pressing issues before the FCC this year will be facilitating the ongoing transition from traditional telephone networks to Internet Protocol (IP), broadband-enabled networks. As part of this effort, the FCC will be faced with the dual challenges of reforming the current telecommunications voice policy framework to spur continued broadband innovation while also ensuring that the digital divide does not widen as this process continues.

This panel discussion will explore where the nation stands in regards to the IP transition and the policies required to enable the transition while still addressing long-standing issues of consumer protection. 

This event is free, open to the public and complies with ethics rules.
