Description
Summary:Since its inception, the Telecommunications Act has grown in size and expanded in appeal. Beyond the Telecommunications Act provides readers with a "report card" on the progression of the Act since that time as well as an overview of international activities based on the World Trade Organization's recent actions.<p>Part one of this 682-page book addresses telecommunications developments in the U.S. with an emphasis on how the 1996 legislation has advanced or impeded its many objectives.<p>The second part of the book establishes that the worldwide movement to achieve full liberalization is progressing at a rapid pace, especially due to the European Union, which on January 1, 1998, mandated unrestricted competition in its telecommunications sector. Part Two also addresses the activities of the World Trade Organization, which recently accelerated the process of creating a global competitive telecommunications environment, including the elimination of foreign ownership restrictions.
