FCC Docket 05-25: FCC Special Access Data Request is Still on Hold
By Andrew Regitsky, President, Regitsky & Associates
It’s been a long eight months since the FCC issued its request for the massive amount of data that will enable it to conduct a market analysis of the special access industry and determine if the special access rates of ILECs need to be re-regulated. Eight months later and we continue to get nowhere fast! As you may remember, the Commission turned over day-to-day control of the data request to its Wireline Bureau. That Bureau will decide when the data will be filed and if any modifications are needed as the data is analyzed and the market analysis proceeds.
Currently, according to the Commission, “[the] Bureau is working diligently to implement the [data] collection, which is contingent on the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) approval per the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). The Bureau expects to begin collecting data towards the end of this year or early next year after OMB approval.”

He added, “We expect this volume to continue as local exchange carriers adjust their rates per the FCC Order.”
