FCC Takes a Forward-Looking Step to Remove Arcane International Reporting Requirements

03.23.2017

Background: The FCC today adopted a rulemaking that proposes to eliminate arcane reporting requirements for providers of international services.

The following statement is from USTelecom CEO Jonathan Spalter:

"The FCC’s decision today to consider removing outdated reporting requirements for providers of international services is not just good policy, it is good for consumers. Today’s international calling market is highly competitive, with almost two thousand U.S. providers of international calling services. Removal of these arcane reporting requirements will enable providers to focus less on filling out unnecessary paperwork, and more on building, maintaining and upgrading America’s broadband networks.”
