Today, the Federal Communications Commission approved a plan to modernize the universal service and inter-carrier compensation systems and transition Universal Service Fund support from voice service to broadband.
Mobile Future Chairman Jonathan Spalter commented on the plan, stating:
“We appreciate the FCC’s initiative to reform Universal Service and its clear recognition of the critical role mobile broadband plays in reaching the Commission’s broadband deployment goals. We look forward to reviewing the details, but appreciate Chairman Genachowski’s leadership and the dedication of the other Commissioners to establish a sustainable framework that helps ensure access to broadband for citizens in all corners of the nation.”
