Law360 (May 24, 2018, 6:51 PM EDT) -- The Federal Communications
Commission's new plan covering intercarrier compensation methods has
garnered early support from CenturyLink Inc. and NTCA-The Rural
Broadband Association, on the heels of an announcement last week that
the agency will seek to root out billing practices used by phone
carriers to inflate call-connection charges.

Under the current plan, according to CenturyLink, "some carriers have
an incentive to refuse requests for direct interconnection in order to
obtain revenues or other benefits derived from charges imposed on
interconnecting carriers."
