Transformation means that old things are abandoned and new paradigms take their place. This is already happening on the traditional POTS (the ‘plain old telephone service’ which is a voice-grade network), claimed Leonard Cali, senior vice president, global public policy at AT&T, in the opening session. On average, 25% of US customers have chosen to leave the old network. With the new IP networks in place, and POTS still available as a safety net, this is the right time to experiment with policies for the new networks.
