Listen to this fascinating discussion with Chip Pickering, CEO of INCOMPAS (formerly COMPTEL), the industry association representing communications and technology companies large and small, advocating for laws and policies that promote competition, innovation and economic development. We discuss how the association has evolved to stay relevant in this hyper-evolving communications landscape, the way new technologies and business models are impacting the financial landscape for traditional networks and carriers, and how content providers like Twitter, Facebook and Amazon are participating and playing a role in growing the marketplace and promoting competition.
We also dig into the legislative and regulatory activities the association is focused on and what is happening within the FCC and Congress that is impacting the communications and internet industries. If you are interested in where the marketplace is headed and what the playing field looks like, this podcast is a must listen. If you want to learn more and get involved with INCOMPAS, register for their upcoming event in Washington, D.C. from April 10 – 13.
