Michigan should update telecom policies

Other Opinions Gail F. Torreano The Michigan Telecommunications Act, known at the MTA, is the main law governing the telecommunications industry in our state. The Legislature is currently reviewing bills to modernize the MTA because the law sunsets at the end of this year.
The MTA was last updated in 2000 and dramatic changes have occurred as new technologies, such as wireless and voice over the Internet, have emerged. Lawmakers have an opportunity to put consumers in the driver’s seat by removing unnecessary regulations. Consumers win when they are allowed to choose the services they want based on their individual needs and the best providers.
Today, Michigan has one of the most competitive communications industries in the nation and consumers are using these new technologies to meet their communication needs. As a result of this demand, there is competition in every communications sector including long-distance, local voice, wireless and broadband. Experience has shown that a marketplace responsive to consumer choice is the most effective way to ensure competitive prices and superior quality. Legislators should keep this fact in mind when creating a new MTA.
