The “Pulver Order” stemmed from a petition filed by Pulver concerning his early venture, Free World Dialup (FWD). This petition sought clarity on whether VoIP applications were subject to traditional telephone regulations. The FCC’s favorable ruling exempted FWD from these regulations. It set a precedent for subsequent VoIP technologies, ensuring that internet-based voice communications would thrive in a regulatory environment tailored for the digital age. “The vision of Jeff Pulver and his colleagues is now being seen in the Americas as traditional landlines are declining while VoIP is rising,” said Marc Magliano, Vice President-Channel Business for The Americas at Snom. “In essence, The Pulver Order paved the way for the creation of many companies, careers, and opportunities that would otherwise never have existed.” This decision was more than just a regulatory milestone; it was a triumph for innovation, competition, and consumer choice. By classifying VoIP networks as information services rather than telecommunications services, the FCC effectively insulated internet applications from unnecessary and potentially stifling economic regulation. This fostered an environment ripe for technological advances and new business models, significantly lowering consumer costs while increasing accessibility and functionality. “Looking back, I didn’t immediately see the significance of the Pulver Order when it was released,” said Glenn Richards, a partner with Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, who represented Pulver before the FCC. “But now, watching the exponential growth of the IP communications industry in the past decade – due in some part to that decision, I am humbled to have played a role in making that happen.” Over the past two decades, the “Pulver Order” has paved the way for widespread adoption and evolution of VoIP. It has been instrumental in the development of now-ubiquitous services like Skype, Zoom, Vonage, Dialpad, 8×8, Google Voice and Meet, and FaceTime, fundamentally altering how we communicate, especially during the recent pandemic, when working from home became the norm, and conferencing services replaced in-person meetings. The order also played a crucial role in shaping the debates surrounding net neutrality and the broader dynamics of Internet governance.

It stands as a testament to the power of advocacy and the importance of adapting regulatory frameworks to the pace of technological change. “As we look to the future, the ‘Pulver Order’ continues to remind us of the need for policy that embraces technological progress while safeguarding the principles of openness and accessibility that are the hallmarks of the internet age,” said Jeff Pulver.
