    Global Crossing supports Missoula plan

    August 23, 2006

    On Paul Kouroupa’s blog he explains his view (and Global Crossing’s view) of the Missoula Plan.
    Here a brief quote from his blog:

    I can’t speak as to why the other carriers supported this plan, but I can say that it is worthy of support, if for no other reason than this is the only comprehensive plan that delivers positive reform of a broken system. There are no other viable options. The industry cannot afford another five years of debate. It is time to embrace the Missoula Plan for what it is and accept the incremental improvement in the situation. Once rate unification is achieved, the rest becomes manageable and hopefully the Missoula Plan is accompanied by further reform of the universal service system.
