Shawn Lewis, CEO of Volo Communications comments on the departure of Chairman Powell:
"Chairman Powell has been a great advocator for VoIP and the associated technologies. He has been a catalyst with his forward-thinking views and he has put the U.S. consumer at the forefront of why the United States needs a competitive telecom market.
"Although unpopular at times, he has maintained his convictions about the future of the telecommunications industry and what it will take to make the latest technologies available to the U.S. consumer.
"We can only hope these views remain within the FCC, as the future for the consumer will rely heavily upon the advancements in this technology."
