Requiring VOIP providers not to provide the same services and pay the same taxes as the wireline carriers is unfair and distorts the market to VOIP vendors advantage. A level playing field is needed for all. IF VOIP cannot compete fairly, then the wireline rate payers should not be subsidizing it with their payments which include taxes.
