Comcast has filed a complaint against the MO Public Utilities Commission in US District Court in Kansas City to prevent the state from regulating its VoIP services, the Kansas City Business Journal reported. Filed Tues, the complaint responds to the MO PUC staff’s Sept allegation that Comcast was marketing local and long distance phone service in the Kansas City area without proper state approvals. The MSO’s complaint cites ongoing FCC review of the issue, and an earlier FCC decision that preempted the MN PUC from imposing similar authority over Vonage. The MO PUC believes cable ops’ VoIP service is dissimilar to Vonage, and should be regulated like incumbent telcos.
