FCC ruling could come soon
Speculation within the C-LEC industry is that the FCC finally is nearing a
decision on whether to allow local-service providers to continue to collect
reciprocal compensation for terminating Internet traffic originating on
another carrier's network. An announcement could come next week.
C-LECs, many of which terminate thousands of calls to their ISP customers
each month, have been expecting the decision since before Thanksgiving.
At this point, it's widely held that the Commission will likely let C-LECs
continue to charge recip-comp fees for completing calls to ISPs at least
until their current interconnection agreement with incumbents expire.
