  • In October, the FCC adopted a Report and Order and Second Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (FNPRM) regarding business data services (BDS). The Second FNPRM proposes to eliminate ex ante pricing regulation of price cap carriers’ TDM-based transport services in response to a remand from the Eight Circuit (Vol. XV, Issue 46). The FCC seeks comment on the appropriate regulatory treatment of electing carriers’ TDM-based transport services. Comments and reply comments are due by January 14 and February 12, 2019, respectively.
