Good job, Mr. Wheeler

Okay, so it looks like Mr. Wheeler is getting a good start, choosing the IP transition as a major push for his tenure at the FCC:

He must have read my TechByte from last week, in which I said:

Wheeler should start by recognizing that it is ridiculous for our wireline communications infrastructure to still be required to maintain and operate an outdated circuit-switched network. We are well into the transition from analog to digital communications in every area except wireline, where providers are still required by the FCC to operate a network based on 50-year-old technology.

Here’s hoping the FCC gets on with the business of facilitating, rather than hindering, private sector innovation. We wish you well, Mr. Wheeler.

I have to assume it was my TechByte that did it. Most likely explanation.
