The purpose of this revised General Order is to chart a new regulatory role for the Commission in the face of increasing competition in telecommunications, the introduction of radical and new communications technologies, and the convergence of voice, data, and video.
New market and technological developments challenge the basis for command-and-control rules, as the telecommunications marketplace can no longer be characterized as a staid commercial environment suited to one-size-fits-all regulation. The traditional regulatory approach sought to limit telecommunications carriers to a narrow set of services and marketing practices that have prior Commission review.
But in the face of changing technology and markets, that approach on balance now harms consumers by delaying the introduction of new services and limiting the deployment of new technologies.
In contrast to the traditional regulatory approach, the decision adopted today addresses and protects the welfare of the modern California consumer. Regulations and programs adopted in the decision seek to empower individuals through education concerning new technologies and markets, and their rights as a consumer; and to protect consumers through enhanced enforcement of our existing rules that guard against unlawful and harmful practices.
Specifically the decision applies to all Commission-regulated telecommunications utilities and takes the following actions: Technology and Market Change Undercut Need for Rules Proposed Five Years Ago The telecommunications industry has become more and more competitive, and intermodal competition increasingly blurs the line between regulated and deregulated providers and services.
It is imperative that the Commission, whose regulatory tools were initially designed to regulate monopolies, periodically calibrate its rules to adjust to this new environment rather than to force competitors to adhere to ill-fitting rules.
The Telecommunications Act established a national telecommunications policy framework, setting us on a path toward competition and deregulation. A central premise of that framework is recognition that competitive markets provide the most effective consumer protection: As competition takes hold and market forces mature, regulators must recognize and accede to the role competitive forces play in empowering consumers to protect themselves.
If the regulatory regime fails to adapt, it becomes an impediment to the societal benefits of economic growth, innovation and the efficiencies that competition was intended to produce. Regulatory adaptation is particularly important in today's dynamic telecommunications marketplace. In the five years between the opening of this proceeding and the Commission's adoption of Decision "D.

In that same period, the first Internet-based telephone companies made their appearance; major cable companies began offering cable-based telephony; peer-to-peer software allowed free voice communications between any two computer users with broadband access; and broadband became accessible to more than ninety percent of U.
Rules that might have seemed necessary or desirable in look very different today. The creation of a highly competitive alternative national telephone system based on wireless technology calls into question the wisdom of extending regulations rooted in the problems of the old copper wire monopoly era.
There are significant differences between the legacy telephone companies and their wireless competitors in terms of technology, costs, business model, market dynamics, customer interaction, billing systems, contracts or regulatory structure. The complex and dynamic nature of the telecommunications marketplace makes it difficult to apply any regulation on a one-size-fits-all basis.
Instead regulatory efforts are best directed at empowering consumers.Oct 22, · Oracle Arms Organizations with a Better Way to Build Subscription Business Models Innovative end-to-end subscription management solution enables organizations across industries to .
