An exploration of telecommunications law in the USA. It offers a jargon-free discussion of how electronic media and telecommunications companies are required to price their services, interconnect with customers and other service providers, and respond to competition. This revised edition includes a comprehensive look at the Telecommunications Act of 1996, its sweeping reforms, and the short-term increase in TC regulation complexity resulting from its passage. The volume also covers how the rapid advance of telecommunications technology has drastically altered regulations first developed when TC meant fixed networks, copper wire and mechanical switches.
