FCC Promises Quick Action on Intercarrier Compensation Reform in Announcing First "Workshop" on the Issue


Following its release of the most recent intercarrier compensation and USF reform proposal (NPRM), the FCC has announced that it will convene the first of several “public workshops to identify solutions to key issues in the USF/ICC proceeding.” (See Public Notice)

This first workshop will be held at the FCC’s offices in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, April 6th. The Commission will focus only on intercarrier compensation reform proposals at this workshop. Specific panelists or an agenda have not yet been released. The Commission is expected to focus on a number of the issues already teed up in the NPRM, including potential resolution of issues like VoIP compensation, phantom traffic, access stimulation and other similar issues.
