Wednesday, May 15th — 9:45 – 10:45 AM – Session

Private Line – “Shades of Grey”

What makes a private line “private?” It isn’t exactly clear. This session will decipher which services are classified private voice and data services, how an auditor would test this and how the FCC, State PUC and State DOR authorities have exercised authority over these services. The speakers will also consider if “private line” necessarily bears the same legal effect as “private carriage” under the recently clarified FCC position on “private” vs. “common” carrier services, as well as how the technologies used to carry the traffic affect the real world applications of these services.

Thursday, May 16th — 9:15 – 10:00 AM – Session

Telecom Due Diligence – Mitigating Taxation and Regulation Risk

Due diligence in the telecom and information technology industries is particularly complex and, historically, a very costly endeavor because of the sheer scope, diversity and uncertainty associated with regulation and taxation. This creates significant risk and financial exposure for buyers, sellers as well as financial institutions for merger, acquisition and other events. This session will cover best practices for reliable due diligence; how to manage the complexity and cost; and approaches to mitigating exposure for buyers and sellers.
