IRVING, Texas, Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BT thanks the Federal Communications Commission for moving forward with a mandatory data request for special access. This is a much-needed step towards setting new rules to reinstate competition and vibrancy in the broken special access market.
Reform is key to enabling businesses to address the challenges of today's economy. As a global company operating in 170 countries around the world, BT has witnessed first-hand the positive impact that addressing access bottlenecks can have on broadband deployment, innovation, jobs, and growth. We believe the data collected by the FCC will demonstrate that special access is a failed market in the US, with overpriced and uncompetitive services.
We thank the Commission for their focus on this issue, and for working to ensure a fair deal for American consumers, businesses, governments, and all who rely on reasonably priced broadband Internet services. BT looks forward to supporting the Commission throughout this process.
For more information about this statement, please contact Jennifer Taylor, Vice President, US Government Affairs for BT Group at +1 202 679 5736 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
