WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) today filed comments in response to an inquiry by the Commission on “how to streamline and reform both the manner in which the Commission assesses carrier contributions to the universal service fund and the manner in which carriers may recover those costs from their customers.” NCTA feels the Commission should refrain in this proceeding from considering USTA’s and SBC’s arguments for extending universal service obligations to cable modem service providers, and should reject such arguments in any event.
