OFCOM on VoIP Regulation and Numbering 

OFCOM is currently firing out tons of paper on VoIP Regulation and also on Telecom Numbering. I have only read yet part of the VoIP Consultation, the piece on PATS, and I ask myself how complicated one can get. This is obviously the result if you try to keep up out-dated laws and definitions up-to-date, putting one weird definition on top of the next, creating more and more baroque definitions. How long can one keep this up until the whole thing topples over?

IMHO a cold reset is required here.

Ofcom yesterday published a consultation on its approach to Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services.

News release: Ofcom sets out approach on VoIP services:

Consultation: Regulation of VoIP Services:

Buying and using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services: Advice for Consumers:

Today Ofcom published its review of the UK National Telephone Numbering Plan, another 200 pages. I have not even started reading yet:

News Release: Ofcom review of UK Telephone Numbering Plan

Consultation: Telephone Numbering - Safeguarding the future of numbers

Ofcom’s proposed future Numbering Plan: Table illustrating Ofcom's proposals

Happy reading!
