The Telecommunications Act of 1996 became law 20 years ago, on February 8, 1996. The stated objective was to create a “pro-competitive, de-regulatory framework” for telecommunications in the United States of America. At the time, it was seen as a ground-breaking experiment because most of the world was still served by state-owned monopoly providers that were widely seen as providing outdated and costly services of poor quality. The development of competition for long-distance services in the U.S., particularly over the preceding decade, was seen as positive and hopes were high for even greater success in local markets. At this CLE, we will hear from some of the key players in the development of the Act and its implementation. The discussion will address the legal and policy issues at the time and their ongoing impact today.
