AT&T on Universal Service,
Intercarrier Compensation Reform

Posted by: AT&T Blog Team on October 6, 2011 at 11:57 am

You may attribute the following statement to AT&T’s Senior Vice President-Federal Regulatory & Chief Privacy Officer Bob Quinn: 

“For far too long, the FCC has wrestled with updating the universal service and intercarrier compensation rules for the broadband era.  Absent reform, these rules will simply loiter on to foster more litigation and arbitrage, and ultimately stifle innovation and the benefits of broadband for consumers. 

“Clearly, now is the time to finally bring these reforms to fruition.  FCC Chairman Genachowski deserves credit for bringing this important issue to this point.  We and many others are committed to working with him and the entire Commission, as it works to bring this opportunity for a fair, reasonable plan across the finish line.”
