5.  Are toll free numbers no longer going to be “free”?

6.  Verizon’s VRD (Verizon Rapid Delivery) is ripe for a makeover

7.  Major service providers continue to discontinue legacy services

8.  The EU General Data Protection Regulation takes effect

9.  The Supreme Court considers two cases involving the Stored Communications Act, both of which could have significant effects on businesses and individuals

10.  Development of 5G
