Regulatory Alert – FCC Triples Regulatory Fines

FCC_New_LogoYou should be aware that the FCC recently adopted a new policy that automatically triples fines for violations of payment rules to the Universal Service Fund, the Telecommunications Relay Service Fund, for local number portability  (LNP), for the North American Numbering Plan and for other federal regulatory fee programs.

The largest telecom organizations like USTelecom, CTIA, NCTA and CompTel have filed a joint petition asking the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to reconsider a new policy. In this filing these companies say that the FCC should have opened a proceeding to investigate the matter rather than arbitrarily trebling penalties.

So be aware that this is even more of incentive to be a good citizen and take care in filing paperwork and paying fees to these various federal programs.
