The following statement may be attributed to an AT&T spokesperson:

“In 2011, the FCC began comprehensive reform of its universal service programs to transition them from voice services to broadband. Today’s action is a significant milestone on this ambitious agenda. CAF II will target universal service subsidies to places where there is not an adequate business case for broadband. Moreover, the FCC appears to be taking significant steps toward phasing out obsolete voice obligations. We look forward to learning more details of the FCC’s action when they are available.”
