Telecom Partner Quoted on Intercarrier Compensation
August 1, 2004
Partner Steven Augustino was quoted in a Capacity Magazine article entitled “Intercarrier Minefield,” regarding the complex issue of intercarrier compensation. According to the article, an alternative system is needed for the means by which carriers currently reimburse each other for originating or terminating switched telephone calls. The article also discusses the growing popularity of new technologies such as voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), which is giving regulators and lawmakers a chance to start with a clean slate, and is also driving the motivation to solve the compensation issue.
