* Resist at all costs the telephone industry's calls for bailouts. The policy should be one of "fast failure."
* Acknowledge that non-Internet communications equipment ... is economically obsolete ...
* Discourage attempts by incumbent telephone companies to thwart [asset-based telecom].
* Accelerate FCC exploration of innovative spectrum use and aggressively expand unlicensed spectrum allocation.
