<![CDATA[Today, NHMC filed reply comments with the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC") urging it to consider consumer protections and competition as it determines how to best handle AT&T's proposed transition away from traditional phone service to Internet Protocol-based services. In its petition, filed at the FCC last November, AT&T suggests that a number of current regulations should no longer apply to it after the transition takes place. In its reply comments, NHMC points out that a number of these regulations concern issues important to consumers such as access to telephone service, affordability, public safety, privacy, and much more - and should be carried over, in some form, after the transition. Further, NHMC urges the FCC to consider the impact of the transition on competition, including the ability of competitors to connect to AT&T's legacy network to reach communities across the country.
