Windstream statement on FCC’s technology transitions further notice of proposed rulemakingThe following statement is from Eric Einhorn, senior vice president of government affairs and strategy:
“With its action today, the FCC continues to defend competition and consumers from harm as the industry moves ahead with the IP transition. Maintaining long established access to ‘last-mile’ facilities, which connect competitors’ extensive fiber networks to individual customer locations, is critical to ensuring business, government, and nonprofit customers of all sizes continue to benefit from a competitive communications marketplace. Windstream welcomes the opportunity to work with the Commission as it seeks to protect choice and to guard against this important technology change becoming an excuse for anticompetitive activity.”
