Pennsylvania becoming more VoIP friendly?

Today, the PAPUC is expected reverse two ALJ decisions and grant Core Communications and Sprint licenses to provide service in rural areas of Pennsylvania.

To date, Pennsylvania RLECS have aggressively -- and successfully -- fought to keep competitors out of their incumbent territories. Their most aggressive advocacy has been against companies like Sprint, which is seeking to rollout a wholesale offering to aid small cable operators in providing VoIP.

With licenses in place, new entrants will be able to bring VoIP and other services to all consumers in Pennsylvania, not just those in the big cities.
