FORT MYERS, Fla., June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Millicorp released the following statement in response to the announcement today by the Federal Communications Commission that Millicorp has been selected to participate in a six-month technical trial of the direct provision of telephone numbering resources to voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) providers. On April 18th, the Commission released an Order offering a select group of VoIP providers an opportunity to apply to participate in a technical trial of the provision of direct access to telephone numbers. The trial is intended to assist the Commission to evaluate whether VoIP providers should be provided with direct access to telephone numbers on a permanent basis. Today, the Commission granted Millicorp’s application to participate in the trial. Millicorp is one of only five entities that will be involved with the trial.
Timothy Meade, President and CEO of Millicorp, stated, “All of us at Millicorp would like to thank Acting Commissioner Clyburn, the Commissioners, and the FCC staff for allowing us to participate in this limited trial. We are honored to be approved by the Commission and delighted to be among the distinguished group of trial participants, which includes Vonage; SmartEdgeNet, LLC; WilTel Communications, LLC; and IntelePeer, Inc. Everyone at Millicorp is excited to work with the Commission over the next several months to ensure that the technical trial is successful and that it provides the Commission with the data that it needs to modernize the operation of the U.S.’s rapidly evolving telecommunications networks by expanding direct access to numbering resources. We appreciate and thank the Commission for their confidence in choosing Millicorp to represent smaller VoIP carriers in this very important process.”
