FCC Plan To Limit Call-Connection Charges Gets Early Praise [telecom]

By Kelcee Griffis

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."
