The following may be attributed to Joan Marsh, AT&T Executive Vice President of Regulatory & State External Affairs:

“Today, the FCC takes significant steps toward completing the ongoing transformation of the nation’s communications networks from outdated legacy facilities to next-generation technologies. The ruling removes or modifies rules that have slowed a provider’s ability to retire aging network technologies and discontinue services that increase a provider’s costs by forcing them to maintain outdated network infrastructure. These actions will enable providers to focus on deploying next-generation fiber-based facilities, upgrading the quality of service offerings made possible by Ethernet and 5G wireless capabilities, and more quickly introducing innovative products and services to consumers.”
