For our topic (Lync / VOIP) the most important document is the IP Telephony document. Here you can find a copy of the survey. Regulatory Recovery Fees are not a tax or government-required fee, and though it may seem so at first glance, they are a form of taxing used by providers regardless of customer use. Both residential VoIP, and business VoIP customers will typically experience this fee on their bill, and it is usually not a large amount. This paper builds on a Workshop on Convergence, VoIP and Regulation sponsored by infoDev and the Telecommunication Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) in Delhi, 11 March for regulators, policymakers and industry players in India. Using this workshop and the case study of India examined at the workshop as a valuable reference. Frontiers of Freedom, founded in by U.S. Senator Malcolm Wallop, is an educational foundation whose mission is to promote the principles of individual freedom, peace through strength, limited government, free enterprise, free markets, and traditional American values as found in the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
