ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the U.S. telecommunication policy for 2007. He says that many people are wondering how the Federal Communications Commission, which is predominantly Republican, will work under the oversight of a Democrat-controlled Congress. He argues that the most important part of telecommunications reform legislation for the wireless industry is to prevent the states from regulating the terms and conditions of wireless service. He points out the issue of the universal-service system.
