Deadlines have been set for comments and replies on the Commission’s proposal to amend certain aspects of the Universal Service Fund. As we reported last week, the FCC is proposing “to facilitate efficient use of reclaimed excess high-cost support” in the Universal Service Fund by “reclaim[ing]” cash that Verizon Wireless and Sprint-Nextel left on the table back in 2008. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking has now been published in the Federal Register, which in turn establishes the participation deadlines. Comments are due by October 7, 2010 (i.e., 21 days after Federal Register publication); reply comments are due by October 21, 2010 (i.e., 35 days after publication).
