Today’s political climate has people rooting for other people not to succeed. But we hope Harold Teets succeeds in his role as a member of the FCC’s Technical Advisory Council because he says the group’s main goals are jobs and driving the economy. “Everything we are talking about is around putting people to work. Building or rebuilding the business climate in the U.S., and driving the U.S. back into a position of world leadership in technology and communications are relevant to that discussion.” Lead the way. Teets has also led the way, or influenced, the direction of not only tw telecom, but the industry’s position on the separation between IT and network, which he says reflects the merging and converging of the two as the world moves from physical to logical and from a circuit-based view of the world to a services-based view.
