Telcordia report on ICANN .net RFP Evaluation

Oki all,

A summary of the report and a link to the full report can be found at:

So now you know. VGRS, NS+, AF, ranked 1, 2, 3; DE and CORE ranked 4 & 5.


Given the "independence" of Telcordia WRT VGRS, this is somehow not surprising.

It is surprising that ICANN did not pick someone who was _actually_ independent to do the ranking. Wish I had the time to actually investigate, but like so many things which look suspicious, they will "get away with it" because others are busy.

Would that ICANN had the integrity to avoid not just impropriety, but the appearance of impropriety. :frowning:

Would that ICANN had some *incentive* to avoid both of those.

I do believe that study is open to peer review?
Telcordia ranking VRSN way ahead does seem to be raising some hackles here
