FCC Adopts Universal Service and Intercarrier Compensation Reform

Today, the FCC adopted its much-anticipated Universal Service/Intercarrier Compensation Reform Order. This order will have significant impacts for all telecommunications carriers, and also for interconnected VoIP providers. The full order, which is approximately 600 pages long, has not been released yet. In the meantime, the FCC released the attached Press Release and Executive Summary for details of the order. For background on the proceeding, see our post from February.

The implications for each carrier will be fact-specific, and we encourage you to contact Kelley Drye if you have any questions or would like assistance.
