HOLMDEL, N.J., April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Vonage (NYSE: VG) released the following statement in response to the FCC's decision today to adopt a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on direct access to telephone numbers for VoIP providers, and grant Vonage a limited trial of direct access to telephone numbers.
"Vonage appreciates the work of Chairman Genachowski, the Commissioners and Commission staff in preparing the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on direct access for VoIP providers, and we thank the FCC for granting a limited trial of direct access to telephone numbers to Vonage and other VoIP providers," said Kurt Rogers, chief legal officer for Vonage.
"Direct access to telephone numbers is the future of telecommunications. It allows for lower-cost, higher-quality voice service and innovation in developing new services, which benefits consumers. The limited trial will provide real-world data to demonstrate that the technical concerns raised by some opponents are without merit. We look forward to working with the Commission in the rulemaking."
