USAC Launches New Web Page
USAC has launched a new page in response to a question I raised during the 10/6/16 FCC/USAC webinar asking for a single page where carriers can find all the pertinent notices they need to analyze ACAM and CAF-BLS options.  This page includes today’s release of a spreadsheet comparing RoR carriers’ deployment obligations for ACAM and CAF-BLS, among other spreadsheets and notices.

The new USAC Rules & Orders/Rate of Return Reform Order page is intended to include all relevant docs. USAC is in the process of notifying carriers individually.  Here’s the link:
