tw telecom, (NASDAQ: TWTC) a leading national provider of managed services, including Business Ethernet, converged and IP VPN services for businesses across the U.S. and globally, today filed a petition asking the Federal Communications Commission to declare that tw telecom’s services that use Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology over managed IP networks are subject to Sections 251(c)(1) and 251(c)(2) of the Communications Act. This clarification is needed to ensure competition in telecom services, which benefits consumers and small businesses by increasing choice and reducing prices.

As competitive service providers such as tw telecom upgrade their systems to Internet Protocol (IP) technology from legacy circuit-switched technology, they need to negotiate new ways to “interconnect” with the ILEC networks so that businesses and consumers are able to make telephone calls to businesses and consumers of other network providers. Under the Act, the ILECS are obligated to offer these interconnections as a way of ensuring competition. However, ILECs are using a simple change in network technology as a pretext to argue that the law no longer requires them to interconnect their IP networks with those of other telephone service providers to complete voice telephone calls to or from businesses and consumers. ILECs further claim that any voluntary Interconnection Agreements with competitive service providers should occur as fully deregulated commercial agreements. Unless the FCC acts quickly to ensure that ILECs remain obligated to interconnect their IP networks to those of competitive providers, ILECs will be able to charge exorbitant rates for IP interconnections, potentially driving competitive providers out of business.

“Telephone service using managed VoIP services is fundamentally the same as telephone service using circuit-switched technology or older technologies,” said Paul B. Jones, Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Regulatory Policy for tw telecom. “The Communications Act was designed to ensure competition in telephone service. That principle shouldn’t be abandoned simply because the technology has changed over time. We’re confident the FCC will agree.”
