Unanimous Decision Paves Way for Next-Generation Broadband Networks to Benefit Technology Companies and Consumers

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- CALinnovates today issued the following statement regarding the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) decision to approve test trials of the transition to all-Internet networks.

Executive Director Mike Montgomery said:

Today's FCC vote will go down in history as the beginning of the next great digital transformation in our nation's history.  Technology companies of all sizes as well as consumers will benefit greatly from Internet Protocol networks.

While the FCC's unanimous 5-0 vote is just the beginning of a longer process to upgrade our nation's networks, the bipartisan decision proves just how vital this transformation is for the country.  The California technology community – which paved the way with its forward-looking IP legislation in 2012 – will be observing the trials closely, looking forward to the opportunity to build upon the networks of the future.

As the country's economy increasingly relies upon the technology industry, this transition will benefit not just Californians, but the entire nation.  The transition to IP networks is a great bet on the future of American innovation and connectedness.
