USAC, Universal Service Fund and FCC Enforcement: Why Implementing an Effective Compliance Risk Management Program is Essential in the “Post Network Neutrality” World
About the webinar:
Having previously signaled its intent to increase Universal Service Fund (“USF”) disbursements to cover Broadband services to the tune of nearly $2 billion dollars, the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) recently extended certain Title II regulations to Broadband services through its Net Neutrality Rules. The FCC confirmed that it will NOT extend Section 254’s USF contribution obligations to Broadband services (at this time). Together, the anticipated expansion of USF funding recipients and the exclusion of Broadband revenue from the contribution base, are certain to ratchet up the pressure on USAC and the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau – to squeeze as much revenue from the current scope of USF contribution-eligible services as possible. This dynamic will set the stage for increased contributor audits and FCC enforcement, putting the FCC’s USF Strike Force to the test and opening the door for the new Enforcement Bureau Chief to reinforce his position as the New Sheriff in Town!
