Action Takes Place: 
San Francisco Marriott Marquis
Want to be where the action is this October? Then make sure to register for The INCOMPAS Show: Fall 2017 featuring ChannelVision Expo West and the NEDAS Symposium, and book your room at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis.

Staying at our host hotel will land you in the middle of the action - just steps from networking events, exciting and educational keynotes and sessions, and the expo hall - and supports INCOMPAS as the conference organizer and your industry association. When our attendees stay at our host hotel, we are able to effectively document the economic impact The INCOMPAS Show has for the hotel, the city and it's critical to negotiating rates for future shows so we are able to keep costs lower for our attendees.

INCOMPAS offers a wide array of registration options, designed to meet your needs:
  • Full registration - Complete access to all conference activities for as low as $550
  • Single-day passes - Expo hall, networking and sessions on the given day

INCOMPAS Says Louisville Broadband Court Decision a Win for Competition and Consumers
Last week, INCOMPAS applauded the U.S. District Court in Louisville's decision to dismiss AT&T's lawsuit against the Louisville Metro Council over the city's "One Touch, Make Ready" ordinance passed in February. The upheld law will enable easier access to poles for new broadband providers and streamline the process for deploying new broadband networks throughout the city.

The "court decision in Louisville is a win for competition, consumers and local communities who have been leading the fight against broadband monopolies who are blocking faster speeds, better service and lower prices," said INCOMPAS CEO Chip Pickering. "One choice is not a choice. It's a monopoly. We hope the FCC will heed the call of local communities like Louisville and adopt 'One Touch, Make Ready' to speed broadband deployment, boost local investment and create more jobs. Implementing 'One Touch, Make Ready' policies, streamlining small cell deployment and freeing apartment and condo residents from monopoly-controlled buildings should be a national priority."
FCC Reminds Service Providers to Register with iconectiv by August 31 for NPAC Transition
The FCC's Wireline Competition Bureau reminded users of the Number Portability Administration Center (NPAC) to register with iconectiv as early as possible to ensure sufficient time to test the new system during the transition.

Service providers must complete the registration by August 31, 2017, if planning to test their interfaces, but no later than October 31, 2017, if they do not plan to test. Testing is expected to begin this month.
