Subject: PTT Control Is A Real Issue


        As a German business executive with substantial experience in telecommunications businesses I read the ".tel" information regarding the role of the PSTN under "" with great interest. 

At first glance, the idea of working within the PSTN structure seems to make a great deal of sense.  However, as NetNumber points out, this idea of "distributed control" is almost guaranteed to slow down the deployment of IP-Communications services on a global basis.  From the perspective of the Internet community I see a real issue here that needs to be addressed.  The ".tel" proposal for allowing competition to resolve the issue seems perfectly appropriate.

The emerging IP-Communications industry represents an exciting opportunity to create competition for the PSTN on a global basis.  Don't hinder this new industry by complicating the control of ENUM services.
