  • Due to the recent government shutdown, the FCC extended the comment period on its Second Further Notice and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding business data services (BDS) from February 12 to March 11, 2019 (Vol. XV, Issue 49). To accommodate the new deadline, the FCC released a Public Notice on February 21, extending access to the secure BDS enclave from March 1 to March 22. The enclave contains highly confidential data filed in response to the Commission’s special access data collection that is part of the record in the price cap BDS proceedings. The data will be available until March 22 unless an interested party demonstrates the need for continuing access beyond such date.
