COMPTEL, the competitive networks association, is changing its name to INCOMPAS. The change, which was announced at this week's ComptelPlus conference in San Francisco, is meant to reflect the organization's growth and commitment to defending competition policy across a wide spectrum of evolving technology platforms.

“The name INCOMPAS illustrates our commitment to innovation, competition and the future. We have a rich history, successfully leading efforts to open markets to new networks, new technology and new ideas,” said INCOMPAS CEO Chip Pickering. “Moving forward, we wanted a name that reflected both our values and our growing membership. This change will create expansion opportunities for our membership, our trade shows and our advocacy efforts. We are INCOMPAS, we are the future of competition.”

In addition to competitive broadband providers, INCOMPAS now counts video providers, social media leaders, content providers, wireless companies, Internet companies, international leaders, start-ups and venture capitalists among its growing membership base. During the past 18 months, under Pickering’s leadership, INCOMPAS has added members including Google, Netflix Inc., Amazon, Twitter, AngelList, Level 3, XO Communications, Rocket Fiber and TMobile.
