Universal Service Monitoring Report


CC Docket No. 98-202

2009


Introduction and Summary



This is the thirteenth report in a series of reports prepared by federal and state staff members for
the Federal-State Joint Board on Universal Service in CC Docket No. 96-45 (Universal Service Joint
Board).1 This report is based on information available to us as of August 2009. These reports contain
information designed to monitor the impact of various universal service support mechanisms, and the
methods used to finance them. These mechanisms were adopted by the Federal Communications
Commission (Commission), based on recommendations from the Universal Service Joint Board. These
reports are part of a monitoring program created by the Commission in 1997 to replace a similar
program in CC Docket No. 87-339 that resulted in a series of nineteen Monitoring Reports. 2 The
current program incorporates most of the information that was collected under the previous program,
and also new materials from the reports of the administrator of the universal service support
mechanisms, the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC). To enhance our monitoring
ability, we have created an open docket,3 which allows data, materials, comments, and studies to be
submitted by any interested party at any time.


The monitoring program has proven to be valuable, not only as a report on the effects of the
Commission’s regulatory policies, but also as a complete census of all incumbent local exchange
carriers. Because smaller carriers generally are exempt from most Commission reporting requirements,
the Monitoring Report incorporates data from several sources, including the National Exchange Carrier
Association (NECA) and USAC. USAC collects information from all eligible (including competitive)
local exchange carriers to administer the universal service support mechanisms. NECA, at the direction
of the Commission, collects information in order to administer the access charge pools and also
provides information to USAC that is utilized in administering the Universal Service Fund. The
Monitoring Report, therefore, contains the only available comprehensive data on all incumbent local
exchange carriers, including data on such matters as the number of telephone lines, calling volumes, and
certain types of costs. It also includes some information on other carriers.


This report presents data for the nine subject categories selected for monitoring. The first
section provides information on the contributions to the universal service support mechanisms and
industry revenues, on which those contributions are based. The next four sections provide information

on the various support mechanisms: low-income support; high-cost support; schools and libraries
support; and rural health care support. The remaining four sections provide information on matters that
might be affected by the support mechanisms: subscribership and penetration; rates and price indices;
network usage and growth; and quality of service. Two sections that appeared in previous monitoring
reports: infrastructure; and revenues, expenses, and investment are no longer included in this report
because the Commission has granted forbearance requests from the larger carriers that reported the data
therein. The Monitoring Report is published once a year.


The following are highlights of some of the material in this report. Section 1 provides an update
on industry revenues and the universal service program requirements and contribution factors. Section
2 includes the latest data on the Lifeline and LinkUp programs. Section 3 includes the most recent
projected payments for all of the high-cost support mechanisms, based on the quarterly reports from
USAC. It also includes information from the latest filing by NECA for the high-cost loop fund. Section
4 includes updated data on the schools and libraries support mechanism. Section 5 includes updated
data on the rural health care support mechanism. Section 6 includes the most recent Census data on
subscribership from the Current Population Survey and the American Community Survey. It also
includes data on telephone penetration by income by state and a discussion of the impact of Lifeline
programs on penetration. Section 7 includes updated Consumer Price Index and Producer Price Index
data and other updated rate information. Section 8 includes the latest NECA data on access minutes.
Section 9 includes updated data on the quality of service from the Commission's Automated Reporting
Management Information System (ARMIS) reports.


This entire report is available electronically through the Wireline Competition Bureau Statistical
Reports4 Internet site, which can be reached at www.fcc.gov/wcb/stats. It is available in both page
image (.pdf) format and in a compressed (.zip) format, which, when unzipped yields word processing
and spreadsheet files. In addition, information received well in advance of the next Monitoring Report
will be made available on an interim basis in separate staff reports or in raw data files (such as most
NECA filings used in the Monitoring Report) on the Wireline Competition Bureau Statistical Reports
Internet site. In addition, the ARMIS data are available on the ARMIS Internet site, which can be
reached at www.fcc.gov/wcb/eafs/.


For ease of public reference, parties submitting materials for this docket should provide a
duplicate copy to the FCC's Reference Information Center,5 where copies of all materials filed in the
docket are available for public reference.

1. Industry Revenues and Contributions




This section provides a general overview of the revenues of the U.S. telecommunications
industry, and the contributions to the universal service support mechanisms that are based on these
revenues.1 Most of the data for 2007 are taken from filings of annual Telecommunications Reporting
Worksheets (FCC Form 499-A) made with the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) on
April 1, 2008.2 Revenue data collected on these worksheets are used to administer contributions to the
universal service fund (USF), Interstate Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS), North American
Numbering Plan (NANP), and local number portability (LNP) programs. Filer revenues also are used to
calculate FCC Interstate Telecommunications Service Provider (ITSP) regulatory fees.3 Data presented
for 2008 and 2009 are taken from FCC Form 499-Q quarterly filings.

Revenue Information

The Commission has established several universal service mechanisms, governed by section 254
of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, that help ensure that all Americans have access to affordable
telecommunications service. In section 254(d) of the Telecommunications Act of 1996,4 Congress
mandated that "[e]very telecommunications carrier that provides interstate telecommunications services
shall contribute, on an equitable and nondiscriminatory basis, to the specific, predictable, and sufficient

Telecommunications providers filed worksheets containing calendar year 2008 revenue data
on April 1, 2009. The worksheets are filed with the FCC’s Data Collection Agent, which
extensively reviews and validates data. Telecommunications providers routinely make revised
filings. As a result, the data are not considered reliable enough for publication for several
months after the initial filing date. Therefore, the 2009 filings were not available for use in
this report and 2008 and 2009 data were based on the more abbreviated and less reliable FCC
Form 499-Q quarterly filings. April 2008 FCC Form 499-A filings containing 2007 revenues
were used to compile the 2007 data. Compilation was based on a database prepared by the
Data Collection Agent as of October 13, 2008. Therefore, revised or new 2007 FCC Form
499-A filings that were received after October 13, 2008, are not reflected herein.

Much of the information filed on FCC Form 499-A is proprietary. Publicly available
information on individual carriers is contained in Industry Analysis and Technology Division,

mechanisms established by the Commission to preserve and advance universal service."5 The
Commission implemented this mandate in a 1997 Report and Order.6 The Commission subsequently
selected USAC as the universal service fund administrator. Telecommunications providers currently file
FCC Form 499-A (Telecommunications Reporting Worksheets, due each April) and FCC Form 499-Q
(Telecommunications Reporting Worksheets, due one month after the close of each calendar quarter).

Virtually all providers of telecommunications must file FCC Form 499-A each year.7 On June
21, 2006, the Commission ruled that providers of interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
service also must file FCC Form 499-A worksheets.8 These filers first provided whole year revenue
information in their April 2008 FCC Form 499-A filings. Telecommunications Reporting Worksheets are
not filed directly with the FCC but rather with USAC, which serves as the data collection agent.

7
There are certain exceptions. Providers that offer telecommunications for a fee exclusively on
a non-common carrier basis are not required to file if their total annual contribution to
universal service would be less than $10,000. Government entities that purchase
telecommunications services in bulk on their own behalf, public safety and local government
entities licensed under Subpart B of Part 90 of the Commission’s rules, and entities providing
interstate telecommunications exclusively to government or public safety entities are not
required to file. In addition, broadcasters, non-profit schools, non-profit libraries, non-profit
colleges, non-profit universities and non-profit health care providers are not required to file.
Finally, systems integrators that derive less than 5% of their systems integration revenues
from the resale of telecommunications and entities that provide services only to themselves or
to commonly owned affiliates need not file. However, services provided to exempt entities
may be subject to contribution requirements and therefore exempt entities may be required to
pay USF pass through charges to their underlying services providers.

FCC Form 499-A asks each filer to report total, interstate and international revenues in two broad
categories: those billed to universal service contributors for resale (carrier's carrier revenues); and those
billed to de minimis telecommunications providers and end users (end user revenues).9 Filers must
provide further breakdowns of local, wireless, and toll services. The form also asks each filer to choose
the communications business that best describes its operations:10


Competitive Access Provider (CAP) or Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC)


Cellular, Personal Communications Service (PCS) and Specialized Mobile Radio (SMR)

The Form 499-A instructs filers to report amounts actually billed to customers. This means that
filers are required to report revenues net of discounts, but without making adjustments to reflect
uncollectible revenues or international settlement payments and receipts. Most filers are able to report
revenues in this manner using information contained in their corporate books of account. Some service

9
Telecommunications providers are considered de minimis and thus are not required to
contribute to universal service (or file Form 499-Q) if their annual contributions to universal
service would be less than $10,000. For universal service contribution purposes, underlying
service providers treat de minimis providers as end users.

10
The detailed definitions of the filer categories are contained in section III.A of the Instructions to
the Telecommunications Reporting Worksheet, FCC Form 499-A

available at
www.fcc.gov/Forms/Form499-A/499a-2009.pdf. Starting in 2004, carriers were instructed to
select up to 5 ranked categories of telecommunications service providers. The 2004 through 2006
forms included a category for All Distance carriers.

providers, however, have no business or regulatory requirements to record intrastate or international
revenues separately from interstate revenues, or to use the detailed revenue categories contained in the
worksheets. Many wireless providers use the interim safe harbor percentages to estimate the interstate
portion of their revenues.11

Form 499-A filings sometimes contain mistakes. Initial examination of the data occasionally
reveals carrier types, revenue amounts and/or revenues reported in service categories inconsistent with the
known operations of the filer. Some corrections have been made based on supplemental filer information
or as a result of audits. Nonetheless, disaggregated data are likely to be less accurate than industry totals.

Table 1.1 shows the major components of telecommunications revenues for 1998 through 2008.
This table was created by simply aggregating the revenues in the major classifications designated on
Form 499-A.

Tables 1.2 and 1.3 provide a look at annual industry revenues over time. Generally, Form 499-A
revenue data can be tabulated in two distinct ways: by type of service provided and by type of business.
Table 1.2 categorizes revenues by type of service and shows, for example, that carriers reported $121.2
billion in wireless service revenues for 2007. This total includes wireless service revenues from some
carriers that are not identified as wireless carriers. In contrast, Table 1.3 shows that wireless service
providers reported total revenues of $124.9 billion, including some revenues for fixed local and toll
services.

Revenue data for 1997 and 1998 were derived by combining TRS worksheet and Universal
Service worksheet data. Since 1999, revenue data came from Form 499-A, which replaced both the TRS
and Universal Service worksheets. Because of reporting changes, data since 1999 are not entirely
consistent with data for prior years.12

11
See Instructions to the Telecommunications Reporting Worksheet, FCC Form 499-A section
III.C.3., available at http://www.fcc.gov/Forms/Form499-A/499a-2009.pdf. In 2001 and 2002,
the interim safe harbor for wireless carriers was 15%. In December 2002, the Commission raised
the wireless interim safe harbor to 28.5%. Wireless carriers began reporting revenues based on
the higher interim safe harbor percent on the FCC Form 499-Q due on February 1, 2003, and
began contributing on this basis in April 2003. In the 2006 Contribution Methodology Reform
Order
, the Commission raised the wireless interim safe harbor to 37.1%. Wireless carriers began
reporting revenues based on this higher interim safe harbor percent in the FCC Form 499-Q due
on August 1, 2006.
12
For example, special access revenues were included with other access revenues prior to 1997 but
have been included with local private line services since then. Similarly, through 1996, filers
reported as other local and mobile revenues substantial amounts of customer premises equipment,
billing and collection, and other types of revenues that are excluded from contributions to
universal service. These revenues are now reported as non-telecommunications revenues. The
spreadsheet versions of both tables contain estimates of non-telecommunications revenues that
had been reported in prior years. Based on staff estimates, the 1996 telecommunications revenues

Note also that each year, many filers erroneously report substantial amounts of switched toll
revenues as other long distance revenues. The data are examined and some revenues are reclassified
based on staff research. Even so, the other long distance category of Table 1.2 probably continues to
contain some switched toll revenues, perhaps significant amounts in some years.

Table 1.4 illustrates how data from the Form 499-A are used to develop the funding base for the
USF.13 As noted above, providers are considered de minimis for USF purposes if their annual
contribution is expected to be less than $10,000.


Revenue data for individual filers are not available to the public. However, Tables 1.5 through
1.8 present detailed industry totals by type of revenue and type of filer. Table 1.5 provides a detailed
breakout of revenues for each of the Form 499-A revenue categories used to report services provided to
other filers for resale. Table 1.6 displays similar detail for each of the revenue categories used to report
telecommunications service provided to end users. Table 1.7 combines data from Tables 1.5 and 1.6 with
data on non-telecommunications revenues to develop total industry revenues. Table 1.8 provides more
aggregated revenue information by type of filers. The revenue categories presented in Tables 1.5 through
1.7 are explained in the Form 499-A filing instructions.

Table 1.9 presents data from quarterly filings of Form 499-Q for 2008 and 2009. Form 499-Q is
far less detailed than Form 499-A. Because Form 499-Q filings do not include a business type, filers
were categorized based on the primary business type selected on their Form 499-A filings. The quarterly
form asks filers to identify revenues as carrier’s carrier, contribution base end user, or non-
telecommunications and to indicate the interstate and international shares of each category. Unlike Form
499-A, the quarterly form does not require filers to classify revenues by types of service. Also,
international-to-international revenues are included with non-telecommunications revenues rather than
with end user revenues.14

reported on TRS Worksheets would have been $10.5 billion lower if revenues had been reported
using current instructions. Some inconsistencies existed in the 1997 - 1998 period. For example,
filers were required in 1997 to include inside wiring maintenance revenues as part of local
exchange revenues. In 1998, filers were instructed to report these revenues as non-
telecommunications service revenues. The local exchange service revenue data in Table 1.2
would show a greater increase from 1997 to 1998 if the same reporting instructions had been used
for each year.

Telecommunications Industry Revenues 2007, available at
http://www.fcc.gov/wcb/iatd/lec.html for a comparison with the funding bases used for TRS,
NANP, and LNP.

Filers record international-to-international revenues for calls that they receive outside the
United States and that they carry to points outside the United States where the filer is
operating as a U.S. carrier.

The universal service rules prohibit the fund administrator from releasing company-specific
information contained in Form 499-A and Form 499-Q worksheets.15 Revenue data for individual filers
are not available to the public.

Program Requirements and Contribution Factors


Contributors make payments into the USF based on their interstate and international end user
telecommunications revenues. Contributors report their revenue data to USAC, which tabulates the data,
and reports it to the Commission. The Commission reviews program requirements and revenue data, and
determines the appropriate contribution factor. The Commission’s Office of Managing Director releases
a public notice stating the proposed contribution factor for the upcoming quarter. If, after 14 days, the
Commission takes no action regarding the proposed contribution factor, the factor becomes final.16


In February 2002, the Commission issued an order that, in relevant part, eliminated from the
contribution base charges identified on the bill as recovering contributions to the universal service support
mechanisms, a situation known as “circularity.”17 Specifically, to account for the inclusion of universal
service line-item revenues in their contribution bases, service providers would increase their universal
service line items above the contribution factor. Before these changes, service providers filed historic
revenue information each quarter, including revenue derived from pass through charges on customers’
bills, and the Commission would use these revenue totals along with total estimated program requirement
to calculate the contribution factor.18


The elimination of circularity was implemented in the third quarter of 2002, and reduced each
carrier’s contribution base by the amount that the carrier paid into USF during the prior quarter. The line
item “Circularity Adjustment” in Table 1.10 accounts for this change. The “Circularity Adjustment”
represents the industry’s actual contributions during the prior quarter as reported by USAC. This
eliminated circularity as a reason for carriers to inflate pass through charges.


In December 2002, the Commission adopted an order that changed the basis for contribution
assessments from historic gross-billed revenues to projected collected revenues.19 This change addressed

the reason given by service providers with declining revenue for marking up their pass through charges.
These service providers argued that they had to contribute based on historic amounts that were greater
than their current period billings, resulting in the need to mark up their pass through charges. This change
was fully implemented in the second quarter of 2003.


Having addressed circularity and changing the contribution assessment methodology to address
declining revenues, the two main reasons cited by providers for marking up their pass through charges,
the Commission adopted a rule requiring those contributors that recover their universal service
contributions through a universal service line item to limit their recovery to the interstate portion of the
customer’s bill times the relevant contribution factor.20


Form 499-Q filers now file information on billed revenues for the previous quarter and both
projected billed revenues and projected collected revenues for the upcoming quarter. Projected
collected revenues, which are projected billed revenues less an allowance for uncollectible revenues,
form the basis for USF contribution assessments. Projected collected revenues are then adjusted to
eliminate circularity. Starting with the second quarter of 2003, the "Circularity Adjustment" amounts
shown in Table 1.10 (discussed in more detail below) reflect expected USF contributions for the quarter
rather than the industry's actual contributions from a prior quarter.


Table 1.10 shows the program funding requirements for 2008 and 2009. For each program and
for each quarter, the table lists projected program demand, administrative costs, interest income, and
periodic true-ups. The table also shows the revenue base and contribution factors for each quarter. As
explained above, the contribution base is 1% less than reported revenues to reflect the fact that some
contribution assessments may prove uncollectible.


In accordance with the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2008 (P.L.110-161), the FCC
instructed USAC to transfer $21.48 million from the USF to the FCC in federal fiscal year 2008 to
support USF oversight efforts, including conduct of audits and investigations by the FCC Office of
Inspector General.21 Because the transfer of funds did not count against any funding caps, USAC
recouped the funds by adding the transfer of $21.48 million to the total required collections. One-half of
this amount was included in the 3rd quarter 2008 demand projection for each support mechanism. The
remaining half was included in the 4th quarter 2008 demand projection for each support mechanism.


Sprint Nextel Corporation and Cellco Partnership d/b/a Verizon Wireless offered voluntary
commitments whereby, at the end of a five-year transition, they would not seek USF support for their

For a discussion of the methodology used to estimate contributions per state, see the Technical
Appendix below and Table 1.13.

Technical Appendix


Carrier revenue information is not reported on a state-by-state basis. Therefore, it is necessary
to estimate revenues per state in order to derive contributions made per state.

The nationwide sum of contributions to support universal service is equal to the payments
made from USAC to recipients of funds from the universal service mechanisms plus administration
costs. Contributions on a per-state basis are computed by multiplying nationwide contributions by the
ratio of interstate end user revenues in each state to nationwide interstate end user revenues.
Estimates of interstate end user revenues by state are reported in Table 1.13. These estimates of end-
user interstate revenue are used as a basis for estimating contributions in Table 1.12.25

The remainder of this appendix provides a detailed description on how revenues are allocated
to the states. Tables 1.5 and 1.6 present nationwide data on telecommunications revenues derived
from information filed on Form 499-A Telecommunications Reporting Worksheets. Nationwide
(cumulative) telecommunications revenues from these tables are divided into categories. These
categories are ILECs’ local exchange service revenues, CLEC revenues, subscriber line charge (SLC)
revenues, access revenues, mobile wireless revenues and toll revenues.26 Table 1.14 presents
telecommunication revenues for each of these categories at the nationwide level.

As set forth below, once the revenues are divided into categories, we use data from several
sources to estimate each state’s telecommunications revenues. Data from ARMIS27 are used to
estimate on a state-by-state basis ILECs’ local exchange service revenues, access revenues, and toll
revenues.28 Data from tariff access filings with the FCC are used to estimate SLC revenues. CLEC
and mobile wireless revenues are estimated on a state-by-state basis using data from FCC Form 477.

Table 1.15 shows intrastate carrier’s carrier, end user and total telecommunications revenues
by category for ILECs’ local exchange service, CLECs, wireless, access, ILEC toll, and non-ILEC


25
Each state’s share of interstate end user revenues and contributions are reported under the
heading “estimated contributions percent of total.”

toll.29 Components of interstate carrier’s carrier, end user and total telecommunications revenues are
presented in Table 1.16. These components include ILECs, CLECs, wireless, SLCs, access, and
toll.30

Data from ARMIS are adjusted prior to allocating nationwide revenues to the states. ARMIS data
include those ILECs with annual operating revenues over $134 million for 2006 and revenues over $138
million in 2007. The ARMIS revenue data represent approximately 93 percent of the local telephone
industry based on USF loops. Here, data from ARMIS are expanded to include the entire ILEC industry
based on USF loops. Column 1 of Table 1.17 shows USF loops at year-end 2007. Column 2 shows the
percent of the ILEC industry that reported in the ARMIS filings. It is the average for year-end 2006 and
2007 data.31 The adjustment formula in Column 3 is (100/Column 2).

In Table 1.18, ILECs’ state local exchange revenues are allocated based on local exchange service
and state miscellaneous revenues from ARMIS Report 43-01 filings. Local exchange revenues for
allocation are the product of reported ILECs’ local exchange service and miscellaneous revenues and the
adjustment formula in Table 1.17. Allocation percentages in each state are the ratio of the state’s
allocation revenues to nationwide revenues. Local exchange revenues by type are determined by
multiplying the allocation factor by the type of revenues (see Table 1.14).

In Table 1.19, we allocate interstate and intrastate CLEC revenues on a state-by-state basis by
multiplying national revenues (see Table 1.14) by an allocation percentage. The allocation percentage is
determined by dividing the number of CLEC lines in a state, as reported in FCC Form 477, by nationwide
CLEC lines.32

In Table 1.20, we allocate interstate and intrastate mobile wireless revenues on a state-by-state
basis by multiplying national revenues (see Table 1.14) by an allocation percentage. The allocation
percentage is determined by dividing the number of wireless subscribers in a state by nationwide wireless

29
Estimated intrastate telephone revenues for Alaska, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern
Mariana Islands, and the Virgin Islands are determined by multiplying the nationwide average
intrastate telephone revenues per loop by number of loops in the jurisdiction.

30
Estimated interstate telephone revenues for Alaska, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern
Mariana Islands, and the Virgin Islands are determined by multiplying the nationwide average
interstate telephone revenues per access minute by number of access minutes in the
jurisdiction.

The staff estimate is based on the share of USF loops that are associated with carriers that file
ARMIS reports.

subscribers using data from FCC Form 477. 33

SLC revenues are allocated by state in Table 1.21. The sum of residential non-Lifeline lines
(including both primary and non-primary lines) and single-line business lines are estimated by
multiplying residential non-Lifeline lines and single-line business lines from ARMIS Report 43-01 by the
adjustment factor from Table 1.17. Column 1 shows primary residential lines and single-line business
lines which is the difference between total residential and single-line business lines, and non-primary
lines. Non-primary residential lines are from ARMIS Report 43-08. Multi-line business lines (Column
3) are estimated for the industry by multiplying the number of lines in ARMIS Report 43-01 by the
adjustment factor in Table 1.17.

Primary residential and single-line business lines SLC rates per month, shown in Column 4, are
the rates filed in the Tariff Review Plan (TRP) for price-cap carriers from July 2007 filings and from
National Exchange Carrier Association (NECA) pool and rate-of-return carriers.34 Non-primary SLC
revenues per line per month for price-cap companies, shown in Column 5, are the rates filed in the TRPs
from the July of 2007 filings. Multiline business SLC rates per line per month in each state, shown in
Column 6, are estimated based on the rates in the July 2007 TRP filings for price-cap companies and from
NECA pool and rate-of-return carriers.35

Revenues used for allocating SLC revenues by state are determined by the following formula: 12
* [primary residential and single-line business SLC per line per month * (primary residential lines and
single-line business lines) + multiline business SLC per line per month * (multiline business lines) + non-
primary lines * non-primary SLC per line per month]. Allocation percentage in each state is the ratio of
the state’s allocation revenues to nationwide revenues. SLC revenues are determined by multiplying the
allocation factor by the type of revenues (see Table 1.14).

In Table 1.22, interstate access revenues and private line revenues are allocated on a state-by-state
basis based on net access revenues. Gross access revenues for allocation are the product of interstate
access revenues from ARMIS Report 43-08 and the adjustment formula presented in Table 1.17.
Revenues for allocation are the difference between gross access revenues for allocation and subscriber
line charge revenues. Allocation percentages in each state are the ratio of the state’s allocation revenues
to nationwide revenues. Access revenues by type are determined by multiplying the allocation factors by
the revenues of each type (see Table 1.14).

33
See Local Telephone Competition: Status as of June 30, 2008 at
http://www.fcc.gov/wcb/iatd/comp.html for wireless subscribers as of June 2007.

34
Carrier USF loop counts are used as weights. We assume that the residential SLC for NECA
pool and rate-of-return carriers during the relevant time period was $6.50.

35
The rates of NECA pool carriers and rate-of-return carriers are assumed to be $9.20 per line
per month for multiline business.

In Table 1.23, intrastate access revenues are allocated between states based on intrastate access
revenues from ARMIS Report 43-08. Intrastate access revenues for allocation are the product of these
access revenues and the adjustment formula in Table 1.17. Allocation percentage in each state is the ratio
of the state’s allocation revenues to nationwide revenues. Access revenues by type are determined by
multiplying the allocation factor by the type of revenues (see Table 1.14).

Table 1.24 shows ILEC toll revenues of large ILECs reported in ARMIS Report 43-08, and ILEC
intrastate toll revenues.36 ILEC intrastate toll revenues are the product of ILEC reported revenues and the
adjustment formula in Table 1.17.

Table 1.25 shows how non-LECs’ intrastate toll revenues are allocated between states based on
intrastate access minutes and intrastate access revenues.37 Non-LEC toll is the difference between
intrastate toll revenues and LEC toll revenues.38 Intrastate toll revenues are reported in Table 1.14, and
LEC toll revenues are reported in Table 1.24. Column 1 shows access minutes for allocation. Access
minutes for allocation are the product of intrastate-interLATA access minutes from ARMIS Report 43-01
and the adjustment formula in Table 1.17. Column 2 shows each state’s percentage of intrastate access
minutes. Column 3 shows each state’s percentage of intrastate access revenues.39 The allocation
percentages for non-LECs’ intrastate toll revenues, presented in Column 4, are (75% * Column 2) + (25%
* Column 3). Intrastate toll revenues by type presented in Columns 5 and 6 are determined by
multiplying the allocation percentage by the type of revenues.

In Table 1.26, interstate toll revenues are allocated on a per state basis by interstate access
minutes. Interstate access minutes are from Table 8.4. The allocation percentages are each state’s
percentage of interstate access minutes. Interstate toll revenues by type presented are determined by
multiplying the allocation percentage by the type of revenues. (see Table 1.14).


36
ILECs’ toll revenues as reported in ARMIS are treated as intrastate revenues for allocation
purposes.

37
Intrastate access revenues are a proxy for intrastate toll rates.

38
We assume that all LEC toll revenues are end user revenues.

39
Intrastate access revenues are reported in Table 1.23. Non-LEC toll is the difference between
intrastate toll revenues and LEC toll. LEC toll is assumed to be end user toll. Intrastate toll
revenues are reported in Table 1.14 and LEC toll in Table 1.24.

Note: Detail may not add to totals due to rounding. Preliminary 2008 data revised since original publication
1/ Data include revenues for de minimis filers as well as for other carriers that are exempt from universal service contribution requirements.
2/ Carrier's carrier revenues are reported on the FCC Form 499-A as sales to other universal service contributors for resale. This includes, for example, access services
that local exchange carriers provide to toll carriers. Sales to de minimis resellers, end-user customers, governments, non-profits, and any other non-contributors are
treated as end-user revenues. Filers contribute to the universal service funding mechanisms based on their end-user revenues. See Table 1.4 for further details on
contribution bases.
3/ Payphone revenues are included with local service revenues in this table.
4/ Revenues from calls that both originate and terminate in foreign points are reported as end-user revenues, and are included in this table through 2007, but are not
included in the universal service contribution base. These revenues are not included in preliminary 2008 data.
5/ Preliminary 2008 data are based on FCC Form 499-Q quarterly filings through February 28, 2009. Companies that do not contribute to universal service are not
required to make these filings. The quarterly filings include preliminary data for the just closed quarter and projections for the coming quarter, and therefore are not as
accurate as the subsequent annual filings. Also, FCC Form 499-Q filers do not separate revenue by type of service. Therefore, revenue totals by service type for 2008
are based on type of filer rather than on data filed by service.

Notes for Table 1.2
Note: Detail may not add to totals due to rounding. Some data for prior years have been revised.
1/
TRS filers generally reported pay telephone revenues as local service revenues, access revenues or operator toll revenues. The Universal Service
and FCC Form 499-A worksheets contain a separate category for payphone coin revenues. Starting in 1997, payphone revenues include payphone
compensation received from toll carriers.
2/
TRS Worksheet filers generally reported special access revenues as access revenues. Reporting changes implemented with the Universal Service
Worksheet explain the increase in local private line revenues and the fall in access revenues shown for 1997. TRS Worksheet filers included
subscriber line charges with other access charges. Through 1996, these revenues have been disaggregated by assuming that the end-user access
revenues in Table 4.2 of Statistics of Communications Common Carriers represents 93% of industry total subscriber line charge revenues. Universal
Service Worksheet filers report subscriber line charges in a separate category. The increase from 1997 to 1998 represents PICC charges levied by
ILECs as well as $1.2 billion of PICC pass-through charges levied by toll carriers.
3/
Charges on end-user bills identified as recovering state or federal universal service contributions are reported separately from local, wireless and toll
revenues. Reported amounts are apportioned between local, wireless and toll service based on the proportions of local, wireless and toll intrastate
and interstate revenues by type of carrier.
Source: Industry Analysis and Technology Division, Wireline Competition Bureau, Telecommunications Industry Revenues (September 2009). Data for
1997 and 1998 primarily based on FCC Form 457 Universal Service Worksheets. Starting in 1999, data summarized from FCC Form 499-A
Telecommunications Reporting Worksheets, which replaced both FCC Form 431 and FCC Form 457.

Filers are asked to select for themselves a service provider category that best describes their operations. The choices have changed over the
years. For example, most satellite service providers identified themselves as other toll carriers in their 1997 FCC Form 431 TRS worksheets
because there was no separate category for satellite service providers. For 2003 through 2006, some filers identified themselves as all distance
carriers. These filers have been reclassified to be consistent with prior classifications. Starting with the 2007 FCC Form 499-A filing, which
reported 2006 revenue data, some filers identified themselves as interconnected VoIP providers and some filers first began reporting revenues
for these services.

1/ This table shows how contribution bases differ for different programs and provides relative magnitudes, but does not provide the
actual amounts used for determining contribution amounts. Amounts shown represent the amounts contained in the FCC Form
499-A database as of October 13, 2008. The universal service administrator continues to receive additional and corrected filings.
Ebased on revenues and the filer type information contained in the FCC Form 499-A filings. The fund administrators may use
carrier type, revenue type, line 603 exemption certifications and additional information requested from filers to determine which
filers must contribute. The universal service fund administrator bills delinquent filers based on estimated revenues and may, in
some instances, include estimated revenue amounts in contribution base amounts. Note also that universal service contribution
factors are set quarterly based on FCC Form 499-Q filings. FCC Form 499-A data are used for true-up and auditing purposes.
Also note that local number portability contribution amounts are determined by region of the country rather than on a nationwide
basis. As a result of these factors, actual contribution bases have been based on slightly different amounts than those shown.
2/ International revenues are excluded from the contribution base if the total amount of interstate end-user revenues for the filing
entity consolidated with all affiliates is less than 12% of the total of interstate and international end-user revenues for the filing
entity consolidated with all affiliates. See 47 C.F.R. § 54.706(c). The threshold was increased from 8% to 12% in 2002. See
Federal-State Joint Board on Universal Service , et al., CC Docket Nos. 96-45, 98-171, 90-571, 92-237, 99-200, 95-166, 98-170,
Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Report and Order, 17 FCC Rcd 3752, 3806, para. 125 (2002). In addition, filers that
provide only international services are exempt regardless of services offered by affiliates.

Revenues are classified by the primary carrier type of each reporting entity. For example, revenues reported by an RBOC affiliate that
identifies itself as an IXC are included in the table as IXC revenues. Many LECs provided both local and long distance services as part
of package plans. Most of the revenues for the toll portion of these bundles were reported as toll revenues on FCC Form 499-A filings
of LEC toll affiliates. Filers identified as All Distance or Coaxial Cable Service Providers have been re-categorized for the purpose of
creating summary statistics
2/
Telecommunications and interconnected VoIP service provided for resale consists of services provided to other contributors to federal
universal service support mechanisms for resale. Revenues from services provided to firms that are de minimis under or exempt from
federal universal service support mechanisms are reported as end-user service and are subject to contribution requirements.

Notes for Table 1.9
Note: Amounts may not add to totals due to rounding.
1/
Each quarter, telecommunications providers that are required to contribute to universal service support mechanisms must to file an FCC Form 499-Q.
The FCC Form 499-Q collects total, interstate and international billed revenues for the most recently completed calendar quarter (historic revenues) and
also collects projected interstate and international -- but not total -- revenues for the upcomming calendar quarter (projected revenues.) Some
telecommunications providers file the form even though they are not required to contribute. USAC estimates revenues for most non-filers.
2/
The FCC Form 499-Q collects historic revenues divided into three categories: telecommunications service provided for resale (carrier's carrier);
telecommunications service provided to end-users (end user); and other revenues. Telecommunications providers that contribute directly to federal
universal service support mechanisms are referred to as "contributors". Telecommunications provided for resale refers to contributors provided to
contributors for resale as. Underlying carriers do not contribute based on these revenues. Revenues from services provided to firms that are de minimis
or otherwise exempt from federal universal service support mechanisms are reported as end-user service. The other revenue filing category consists of
international-to-international revenues and revenues from goods and services that are not classified as U.S. telecommunications. International-to-
international service refers to calls that originate in a foreign point, traverse the United States, and terminate in a foreign point. These revenues, which
are exempt from universal service contribution, are reported in a separate end-user telecommunications revenue category in the FCC Form 499-A. These
revenues are included in telecommunications relay service, local number portability and number administration contribution bases.
3/
Filers contribute based on the interstate and international telecommunications revenues that they collect from end-users. On the FCC Form 499-Q, filers
project the amount of contribution base they expect to bill in the upcomming quarter and then project the amount of contribution base revenues that they
expect to collect. The difference between projected billed revenues and projected collected revenues is amount of revenue that the filer expects to be
uncollectible (the implied uncollectible rate). Filers contribute in a quarter based on the end user revenues that they project collecting in that quarter.
Filers report actual billings and uncollectibles in their April 1 FCC Form 499-A filings. This information is used to true-up contributions, and provides
more accurate information on billings and collections for the year. FCC Form 499-A data for 2008 and 2009 is not yet available for publication.
4/
Interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (Interconnected VoIP) providers were required to file FCC Form 499Q worksheets starting August 1, 2006,
but were not required to include historic data until the February 2, 2007 filing.
5/
The amounts actually used to calculate contribution factors in 2008 and 2009 are shown below. The totals for the year do not match the totals shown
above. One reason is that amounts in the table reflect all amounts shown in the FCC Form 499-Q data base, including some estimated amounts for non-
filers and amounts reported by filers that are de minimis or do not contribute because they provide only international services. Finally, some difference
may be explained by late filings and corrections made to the data base after the Commission calculated contribution factors.

1 Interest income is shown as negative because it is subtracted from expenses to yield the total.
2 The recovery of support for Sprint and Verizon Wireless is consistent with the support phase-down discussion whereby USAC
recovers 20% of CETC support over five years until such time Sprint and Verizon Wireless no longer receive any High Cost
support. A discussion of the support phase-downs can be found in DA 08-258 and DA 08-259 released in November 2008.
3 For the schools and libraries mechanism, periodic true-ups include applications of unused fund balance from prior periods.

Low-Income

Support



In 1984, the Commission established a Lifeline program designed to promote universal service by
providing low-income individuals with discounts on the monthly cost of telephone service.1 The
Commission expanded that program in 1985.2 In 1987, the Commission adopted Link Up America (Link
Up), designed to help low-income households pay the initial costs of commencing service.3 After passage
of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 (1996 Act),4 the Commission adopted expanded universal service
low-income rules.5 In June 2000, the Commission further expanded the Lifeline and Link Up programs to
address the particularly dire needs of those living on tribal lands.6 In April 2004, the Commission
released an Order expanding the federal default eligibility criteria to include an income-based criterion
and additional means-tested programs.7 The Order adopted federal certification and verification
procedures that require states, under certain circumstances, to establish procedures to minimize potential
abuse in the program. To target low-income consumers more effectively, the Commission adopted
outreach guidelines and issued a voluntary survey to gather data and information from states regarding the

administration of Lifeline/Link Up programs. The Order also contained a Further Notice which proposed
adding a broader income-based standard than the one adopted in the Order to further increase penetration
rates.

In March 2008, the nationwide telephone penetration rate among low-income households8 was
89.7 percent. The nationwide telephone penetration rate for all households at the same time was 95.2
percent. Since 1984, the year before the Federal Communications Commission first established Lifeline
to help low-income households afford the monthly cost of telephone service, penetration rates among
low- income households have grown from 80.1% to 89.7%. States that have provided a full or high level
of Lifeline support for telephone service for low-income consumers experienced an average growth in
penetration rates for low-income households of 4.0% from March 1997 to March 2008.9 In contrast,
states that provided a basic or low level of Lifeline support experienced an average increase in telephone
penetration rates for low-income households between March 1997 and March 2008 of only 1.4%.10 As
shown in Table 2.1, nearly 6.9 million subscribers paid reduced local rates under the Lifeline program in
2008, whereas the Link Up program, which supports affordable connections to the network, connected
about 1.6 million telephone beneficiaries.


The Commission’s rules are designed to satisfy the 1996 Act's mandates that rates be "affordable"
and access be provided to "low-income consumers" in all regions of the nation. The rules require low-
income support to be competitively and technologically neutral through equitable and nondiscriminatory
contributions from all providers of interstate telecommunications services, and by allowing all eligible
telecommunications carriers, including wireless carriers, to receive support for offering Lifeline and Link
Up service.11

Eligibility for Lifeline and Link Up

In states that provide state Lifeline and Link Up support, Lifeline and Link Up are available to all
subscribers who meet state eligibility requirements. Although states have some latitude in selecting
means tests, state commissions must establish narrowly targeted qualification criteria that are based solely
on income or factors directly related to income for low-income residents to be eligible for Lifeline and

8
Low income households, as defined in section 6 of this report, are households with an income
below $10,000 in March 1984 dollars. This is equivalent to $20,812 in March 2008 dollars.

9
Under the federal low-income program, eligible consumers in states that establish their own
supplemental Lifeline programs received additional federal discounts. Under Tier 3 support, one-
half of the state low-income discount is matched up to $1.75 in additional federal low-income
discounts. 47 C.F.R. § 54.403(a)(3).

Link Up. In addition, states with eligible residents of tribal lands must ensure that their qualification
criteria are reasonably designed to apply to low-income residents of tribal lands, if applicable.12 To
receive Lifeline and Link Up in a state that does not mandate state Lifeline support, consumers must
certify that their household income is at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, or that they
participate in one of the following seven federal programs: Medicaid, Food Stamps, Supplemental
Security Income (SSI), Federal Public Housing Assistance (Section 8), the Low-Income Home Energy
Assistance Program (LIHEAP), the National School Lunch Program’s free lunch program, or Temporary
Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).13 In such states, carriers must obtain signed statements from the
consumer certifying that he or she receives benefits from one of these programs, or that the consumer’s
household meets the income requirement, identifying the particular program and agreeing to notify the
carrier if he or she ceases to participate in the program or programs or if the consumer’s income exceeds
the income requirement.14

Subscribers living on tribal lands qualify to receive federal Lifeline support if: (1) they qualify
under state criteria in a state that provides Lifeline support; (2) they certify that their household income is
at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines; (3) they certify that they receive benefits from one
of the seven federal programs listed above; or (4) they certify that they participate in one of the following
additional federal assistance programs: Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance (GA), Tribally-
administered Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (Tribal TANF), or Head Start (meeting the
income-qualifying standard).15

Lifeline Support

Under the Commission’s rules, there are four tiers of federal Lifeline support that are available
monthly. All eligible subscribers receive Tier 1 support, which provides a discount equal to the
incumbent carrier’s subscriber line charge.16 Tier 2 support provides an additional $1.75 per month in
federal support, if all relevant state regulatory authorities approve such a reduction.17 (All fifty states
have approved.)


Tier 3 of federal support is based on the amount of additional state support mandated by the
relevant state or otherwise provided by carriers. Federal support is available to match one half of the non-
federal support provided, up to a maximum of $1.75 in federal support, assuming that the carrier has all

necessary approvals to pass on the full amount of this total support in discounts to subscribers.18 Only
eligible residents in states that have established their own Lifeline/Link Up programs receive Tier 3
support.


Eligible subscribers living on tribal lands also qualify to receive Tier 4 support if they meet the
eligibility standards described above. Tier 4 support provides up to an additional $25 per month towards
reducing basic local service rates. Eligible subscribers living on tribal lands that receive Tier 4 support
must pay at least $1 a month for local phone service, after the discount.

The Commission’s Link Up program provides qualified low-income individuals with a federally-
financed 50% discount (up to a maximum $30 discount) on initial connection charges.19 In addition,
these subscribers can choose to schedule deferred payments of up to $200 over a one-year period, with the
customary interest charges paid by federal support.20


Eligible residents of tribal lands can receive additional Link Up support to fully cover any charges
between $60 and $130, representing up to a maximum of $100 in discounts on initial connection charges
of $130 or more.21

Services

Basic local service must include, at a minimum: single-party service, voice grade access to the
public switched telephone network, Dual Tone Multifrequency signaling or its functional digital
equivalent, access to emergency services, access to operator services, access to interexchange service,
access to directory assistance, and toll limitation. The federal program compensates eligible
telecommunications carriers for toll-limitation based on the carrier's incremental cost of providing toll-
limitation services.22

Advertising

Carriers offering Lifeline and Link Up are required to publicize the availability of those programs
using media of general distribution “in a manner reasonably designed to reach those most likely to qualify
for support.” 23

Support Mechanism

The federal portion of the program is funded by the federal universal service support mechanisms,
which include contributions from providers of interstate and international telecommunications, including
payphone aggregators and private network operators that offer service to others for a fee on a non-
common-carrier basis. These carriers and service providers may pass on contribution expenses to their
customers.

The FCC monitors subscriber participation and telephone usage to determine program benefits and
costs.24 Historical tables for subscribership and carrier payments by state can be downloaded from the
Monitoring Report’s Low-Income Support section of the Wireline Competition Bureau Statistical Reports
website at www.fcc.gov/wcb/iatd/stats.html.

1 Effective in 1998, the federal Lifeline support mechanism was expanded so that a basic level of assistance would be provided in all states.
Additional federal support is also provided wherever a state chooses to provide matching assistance. Prior to the expansion, states were required
to match all federal support with their own state support, and if the state provided no support, then no federal support was available in that state.
The basic level of federal support was also increased in 1998.
2 Tribal support is Tier 4 support only. Tiers 1 to 3 support for tribal beneficiaries is included under General.
3 TLS is an abbreviation for toll limitation service.
4 Carriers no longer charge a residential Presubscribed Interexchange Carrier Charge (PICC) as of July 1, 2000.

High-Cost

Support




The high-cost support mechanisms enable areas with very high costs to recover some of
these costs from the federal universal service fund, leaving a smaller remainder of the costs to be
recovered through end-user rates or state universal service support mechanisms. In this manner,
the high-cost support mechanisms are intended to hold down rates and thereby further one of the
most important goals of federal and state regulation -- the preservation and advancement of
universal telephone service. This section of the report outlines the high-cost support
mechanisms and provides data for these mechanisms. The high-cost support mechanisms
include embedded high-cost loop support (HCLS),1 safety net additive support, safety valve
support, forward-looking non-rural high-cost model support (HCMS), interstate common line
support (ICLS)2 for rate-of-return carriers, interstate access support (IAS) for price-cap carriers,
and local switching support (LSS) for carriers that serve 50,000 or fewer access lines. Table 3.1
summarizes the annual amounts for the high-cost support mechanisms for 1986 through 2009. It
is based on information provided by the National Exchange Carrier Association (NECA) through
1997 and the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) since 1998. Support amounts
for 2009 are projected, based on USAC’s fourth quarter filing, and the numbers for prior years
reflect actual payments.3 Support amounts are subject to adjustment if data are corrected in
future periods.


Eligible telecommunications carriers (ETCs) are eligible to receive support from the
universal service support mechanisms provided that they provide service using their own
facilities, either partially or completely. Thus, pure resellers are not eligible. To be eligible to
receive support, a carrier must be designated as an ETC by the state regulatory commission of

1
This was formerly referred to as the Universal Service Fund, and still bears that name in
the Commission rules. It is now referred to as high-cost loop support to avoid confusion
with the new, more comprehensive universal service support mechanisms that the
Commission developed to implement the 1996 Act. See 47 C.F.R. § 36.601. See also 47
C.F.R. Part 54.
2
Effective July 1, 2004, long term support (LTS) was merged into ICLS. Any LTS
amounts reported in subsequent years are out-of-year adjustments for prior payments.
Such adjustments occurred for ILECs only in 2005, but continued for some CETCs
through 2008.

2009). Except for ICLS and LSS, for which final true-ups are available through 2007,
the actual support amounts for a given year contain adjustments for prior years. USAC
now makes these amounts available on their website on a monthly basis, beginning with
2003. Actual support amounts for earlier years were provided to us by special request.

the state in which it operates, or by the FCC where the state commission lacks jurisdiction.4 A
competitive carrier that is designated as an ETC (a CETC) will receive high-cost support that is
determined by the number of lines it serves, the support per line received by the incumbent local
exchange carrier (ILEC) against which it is competing, and the degree to which it uses its own
facilities to provide its services.5 On May 1, 2008, the Commission released an order adopting
an interim, emergency cap on the amount of high-cost support available to CETCs.6
Specifically, as of the effective date of the Interim Cap Order, total annual CETC support for
each state is capped at the level of support that CETCs in that state were eligible to receive
during March 2008 on an annualized basis.7 Table 3.2 compares the annual amounts of support
received by ILECs and by CETCs for each support mechanism since the first CETC started
receiving support in 1999.8


Historically, HCLS was provided to all ILECs based on their embedded costs. Such
support provides assistance for non-traffic sensitive (NTS) local loop costs -- a term that refers to
the costs of outside telephone wires, poles, and other facilities that link each telephone
customer's premises to the public switched telephone network. NTS costs are allocated between
the state and interstate jurisdictions because all local loops can be used for making and receiving
both intrastate and interstate telephone calls. Historically, the interstate allocation was made
using the Subscriber Plant Factor (SPF).9 This factor is now 25% for all companies. Today,
only rural carriers10 receive HCLS. Non-rural carriers receive HCMS instead of HCLS.

The data for 2009 are projections. USAC’s quarterly filings include projections of
support for competitive carriers that have applied for, but not yet received, ETC status.
These support amounts have been removed from the 2009 data reported here if the carrier
failed to attain ETC status by the time of the filing for the Fourth Quarter 2009.

The SPF was formerly a multiple of the proportion of a study area’s traffic that was
interstate. It was frozen in 1981 and then transitioned to 25% between 1985 and 1993.

See 47 C.F.R. § 51.5 for the definition of a rural carrier. Generally, they either have
fewer than 100,000 lines or serve predominantly rural areas.

If an ILEC is deemed a rural carrier, it continues to receive high-cost support based on
embedded costs. The expense adjustment allows those study areas11 with an average
unseparated cost per loop that exceeds 115% of the national average to allocate an additional
portion of their NTS costs to the interstate jurisdiction and to have those costs recovered by
HCLS.12 Table 3.3 shows the percentages of additional NTS costs recovered by HCLS.13 HCLS
was implemented during a period in which the basic interstate allocation of loop costs was
shifted from a level based on the historical SPF to the present flat allocation factor of 25%. Both
of these changes were phased in between 1985 and 1993, during which time the HCLS was
increased by one-eighth of the formula amount each year.


In December 1993, the Commission, at the recommendation of the Joint Board in CC
Docket 80-286, imposed a cap on HCLS payments.14 The cap was indexed to the rate of growth
in the national total of working exchange loops. It is implemented by adjusting the national
average cost per loop used to calculate each study area's high-cost assistance (using the current
formula from Table 3.3) from the average value to whatever base value is required to achieve the
cap. For example, in 2003, the cap was achieved by adjusting the base value 2001 cost per loop
from the national average of $240.00 to $267.15. In addition, when exchanges are sold or
transferred to another company, the new owner is limited to the same support for those
exchanges that they had under the old owner.15

11
A study area is usually an operating company's operations in one state. Holding
companies may own multiple operating companies and thus have multiple study areas in
a state. Study area boundaries were frozen as of November 15, 1984. Any subsequent
change requires a Commission waiver of this freeze.

In January 1988, high-cost assistance was retargeted to increase benefits to small and
medium sized LECs. The old and new high-cost formulas are compared in Table 3.1 of
the Monitoring Reports in CC Docket No. 87-339. The last report in that docket was
released May 30, 1997.
13
For example, suppose the national average cost per loop is $240 and a company with
10,000 loops has a cost per loop of $420, or 175% of the national average. Then for the
portion of their costs between $276 (115% of the national average) and $360 (150% of
the national average) they would receive 65% of those costs [.65 times ($360 - $276) =
$54.60], plus they would receive 75% of their costs over $360 [.75 times ($420 - $360) =
$45], resulting in HCLS totaling $99.60 per loop, or $996,000 total support.

The Commission modified the high-cost support mechanism to provide additional
support to rural carriers on May 23, 2001.16 Implementation of the modified support mechanism
began July 1, 2001 and was extended in 2006 beyond the originally anticipated five year
period.17 The Commission rebased the HCLS fund for rural carriers, revised the corporate
operations expense limitation formula, 18 and modified the indexed cap. Accordingly, beginning
July 1, 2001, the caps for non-rural hold-harmless and rural HCLS were calculated separately.19
For rural carriers, the national average annual loop cost is now frozen at $240.00 (the 2001
national average) and the cap is indexed to the rate of growth in working loops of rural carriers
plus the rate of inflation as measured by the Gross Domestic Product – Chained Price Index
(GDP-CPI).20 The Commission adjusted the rural HCLS cap by changing the base year for the
calculations to 2000 for purposes of recalculating the cap for 2002 and subsequent years.21

To encourage new investment in rural infrastructure, safety net additive support was
made available for rural carriers whose telephone plant in service per loop increased by over
14% in one year.22 In such cases, this additional loop support equals the difference between
what the rural carrier’s HCLS would have been uncapped and what it is capped in the qualifying
year, less the difference between the uncapped and capped amounts in the base year. For new
sales or transfers of rural exchanges, the acquiring carrier is required to keep separate cost
information for the acquired exchanges to determine the eligible support for those exchanges.
Safety valve support is available for new investments in infrastructure made in the acquired
exchanges.23


If an ILEC is deemed to be a non-rural carrier, it now receives high-cost support based on
forward-looking costs, as estimated by an FCC cost model. The Commission adopted a high-
cost model support mechanism for non-rural carriers on October 21, 1999, based on
recommendations from the Joint Board.24 This HCMS mechanism is based on the forward-
looking costs of providing supported services25 as determined by the Commission’s cost model.26
For each state, the cost model calculates the wire center forward-looking cost per line incurred
by non-rural carriers to provide supported services. The statewide average cost per line is then

The high cost model consists of: (1) a model platform, which contains a series of fixed
assumptions about network design and engineering; and (2) input values for the model
platform, such as the cost of network components, e.g., cables and switches, as well as
various capital cost parameters. See Federal-State Joint Board on Universal Service,

compared to the national average cost per line to determine eligibility for support. The forward-
looking support mechanism provides support to non-rural carriers in those states that have a
statewide average forward-looking cost per line greater than the national benchmark, which
initially was set at 135 percent of the national average forward-looking cost per line.27
Beginning in 2004, this benchmark is now two standard deviations above the national average.28


After determining the total amount of forward-looking support provided to non-rural
carriers in a particular state, the support is then targeted to individual wire centers that have
forward-looking costs in excess of the benchmark.29 Under the targeting approach, the amount
of support provided to a non-rural carrier serving a particular wire center depends on the relative
costs in that wire center and the number of lines served by the carrier. By comparing the relative
costs in various above-benchmark wire centers, the targeting approach enables the Commission
to provide greater amounts of support to carriers serving lines in wire centers with costs further
above the benchmark. Thus, unlike providing a uniform per line statewide support amount, the
targeting approach provides support in an amount commensurate with the cost of service,
thereby encouraging carriers to serve high-cost areas.


The Commission also adopted a transitional “hold-harmless” measure to prevent rate
shocks and disruptions in state rate designs when the new mechanism took effect.30 As adopted,
no non-rural telephone company would receive less support than it received under the embedded
HCLS mechanisms during the transition period. On December 8, 2000, the Commission adopted
measures to phase down interim hold-harmless support, through $1.00 reductions in average
monthly per-line embedded HCLS, beginning January 1, 2001, and every year thereafter until
there was no more interim embedded hold-harmless HCLS.31 That point was reached in 2004.


LTS was related to interstate non-traffic sensitive costs. LTS provided support to the
members of the NECA common line pool, allowing them to charge a below-cost carrier common
line (CCL) rate that was uniform for all companies in the pool. Prior to 1989, all ILECs were
required to be part of the NECA common line (CL) pool, and CCL rates were uniform
nationwide. On April 1, 1989, companies were permitted to withdraw from the NECA CL pool

and provide jurisdictionally specific CCL access charges; however, carriers had to remain in the
pool to receive LTS.


Nationwide pool results provided by NECA for 2008 are shown in Tables 3.4 and 3.5.
Table 3.4 summarizes the CL pool revenues and expenses for the year 2008, as well as a
comparison with the corresponding figures for 2007. Table 3.5 has comparable figures for
NECA's traffic sensitive pool.


To reduce disparities in CCL rates among ILECs after companies were permitted to
withdraw from the CL pool, LTS was set up. LTS originally consisted of payments to the NECA
CL pool from companies that withdrew from the NECA CL pool. Companies remaining in the
NECA pool charge CCL rates, pursuant to the NECA tariff, which were formerly equal to the
average CCL rate of the price-cap companies. Effective January 1, 1998, the funds for LTS
came from the federal universal service support mechanisms, and LTS was portable to CETCs.
At the same time, the NECA pool rate no longer was made equal to the average price-cap rate.
Rather, the amount of LTS that a NECA pool member was eligible to receive in 1998 was the
1997 level of LTS (the difference between 1997 CCL revenue requirements and the sum of 1997
CCL revenues using the NECA pool rate and 1997 subscriber line charge revenues) multiplied
by the rate of growth of the national average NTS cost per loop. The 1999 level of LTS was
similarly adjusted from the 1998 level by the national average loop cost growth rate. Beginning
January 1, 2000, LTS was adjusted for inflation to reflect the annual percentage change in the
GDP-CPI.32 After the implementation of ICLS (see below), the Commission determined that it
was necessary to reduce LTS for some carriers to prevent over earning by those carriers whose
ICLS would otherwise have fallen below zero.33 Effective July 1, 2004, LTS was merged into
ICLS.34


In response to the 1996 Act, the Commission also removed implicit support from
interstate access charges. In November 2001, the Commission created the ICLS mechanism for
rate-of-return carriers to convert implicit support in the access rate structure to explicit, portable

support.35 ICLS recovers any shortfall between the allowed common line revenues of rate-of-
return carriers and their subscriber line charge revenues and gradually replaces the carrier
common line charge. Under the MAG Order, the ICLS mechanism was implemented beginning
on July 1, 2002.


On May 31, 2000, the Commission established an explicit interstate access support (IAS)
mechanism for price-cap carriers to replace the implicit support previously collected through
interstate access charges.36 Like ICLS, the purpose of this mechanism is to provide explicit
support to ensure reasonably affordable interstate rates. This is in contrast to the Commission’s
other high-cost support mechanisms, which provide support to enable states to ensure reasonably
affordable and comparable intrastate rates. The IAS mechanism provides support to carriers
serving lines in areas where they are unable to recover their permitted revenues from the
subscriber line charges. The support total is an aggregate annual amount of approximately $650
million. Support is targeted to the density zones that have the greatest need for it, and is
provided on a portable, per-line basis. It is available on a competitively neutral basis to any ETC
serving a supported customer, regardless of the technology used by that carrier.


LSS provides support for traffic sensitive local switching costs. LSS provides support to
ILECs with study areas of 50,000 or fewer access lines, to help defray the higher switching costs
of small ILECs. The LSS is recovered through the universal service support mechanisms, rather
than through higher traffic-sensitive access charges. Until the end of 1997, this support was
implicitly included in those access charges, based on dial equipment minute (DEM) weighting.37
The portion of these costs that were normally allocated to interstate was determined by the ratio
of interstate to total dial equipment minutes, known as the DEM factor. However, ILEC study

areas with 50,000 access lines or fewer had that portion multiplied by a weighting factor, which
was determined by the number of access lines in the study area.38 The resulting weighted DEM
factor (which was not permitted to exceed .85) allowed these study areas to recover a greater
portion of their local switching costs from interexchange carriers in the form of higher access
charges.39


Since 1998, the LSS factor has been calculated as the difference between the 1996
weighted DEM factor and the 1996 unweighted DEM factor. It is subject to the limit that the
sum of the DEM factor and the LSS factor shall not exceed .85. Also, if the number of lines has
increased since 1996 across one of the limit values of 10,000 or 20,000 or 50,000 lines, the 1996
weighted DEM factor used for computing the LSS factor is adjusted to reflect the weighting
factor appropriate for the new number of lines. The LSS is the product of a carrier’s annual
unseparated local switching revenue requirement multiplied by its LSS factor. The
Commission’s rules require that the LSS be trued-up with actual costs no later than 15 months
after the end of the calendar year for which historical data are submitted.40


All of the universal service support mechanisms are administered by USAC, an
independent subsidiary of NECA. As part of its administration of these support mechanisms,
USAC files quarterly reports with the Commission, at least 60 days prior to the start of each
quarter. These reports include quarterly projections of the amounts to be paid for each program,
along with true-ups (differences between actual payments and projections) for prior periods,
administrative expenses and interest income. The report for the fourth quarter of 2009, filed on
July 31, 2009, was the one used to compile the 2009 projections for the tables in this section.
Information on actual support payments since 2003 can be found on the USAC website,41 and
data provided to us by USAC on annual support payments between 1998 and 2002 were used for
those years. Tables 3.6 through 3.14 provide a summary by state of the total amounts of these

The weighted and unweighted DEM factors were shown in section 8 of this report in

those years the program existed between 1998 and 2009. Table 3.6 summarizes HCLS
payments, Table 3.7 summarizes safety net additive support payments, Table 3.8 summarizes

payments, and Table 3.13 summarizes LSS payments. Table 3.14 summarizes the total of these
seven payments. Table 3.15 shows the amounts of these payments by state going to ILECs and
CETCs for each year since 1999. Table 3.16 shows, by support mechanism by state, for 2008,
the monthly support payments per loop to carriers.43 The 1998 amounts in Tables 3.6, 3.10, and

The payments for the forward-looking high-cost model support only include payments
actually made based on the model. In cases where the HCL hold-harmless payment was
made because it exceeded the model amount, the model amount was not counted and the
hold-harmless payments were included in HCLS.

Loops or lines from USAC’s Fund Size Projection for the Fourth Quarter 2008 were used
because USAC’s files showing actual payments do not include the number of loops or
lines on which those payments are based. For ILECs, the maximum of loops or access
lines for the various support mechanisms were used, and for CETCs, rural and non-rural
components were considered separately, and IAS and ICLS access lines were added.
Only those CETC loops or lines that were reported as eligible for support in the Fourth
Quarter filing or received support payments in 2008 were included.

numbers (except for 2009 data) are based on the actual payments, as reported by USAC, and
include out-of year adjustments for prior years. In all cases the 2009 total is based on the fourth
quarter projection.


Pursuant to Part 36 of the Commission’s rules, NECA collects certain cost data from ILECs
that provide service to approximately 98% of the nation's ILEC subscribers.47 Each year NECA
collects NTS cost and loop data from the previous year, and files all such data with USAC and the
Commission. USAC, as administrator of the high-cost support mechanism, uses that information to
distribute high-cost assistance in the following year. On September 30, 2008, NECA reported new
data for 2007, and revised data for the four previous years. State totals, based on that report,
covering cost data for 2007, are presented in Table 3.17. This table shows unseparated NTS costs
(revenue requirement), the number of loops, and costs per loop. It also shows the expected HCLS
payments for 2009, based on 2007 data, using the high-cost formula and the cap discussed above.
The costs shown are embedded costs for all companies.48 The final column shows the percentage of
the total payments going to companies in the state.


Table 3.18 shows the changes, from the revised data for 2006 to the newly reported data for
2007, for state totals, of the unseparated NTS revenue requirement, the number of loops, the revenue
requirement per loop, and the HCLS payments. The phrase, "payments in later year" in the last
column refers to the fact that these are projections of payments to be made two years after the costs
are incurred; in this case, in the years 2008 and 2009.


Tables 3.19 through 3.21 present state summaries of the revised historical information filed
for 2003 through 2007 in the 2008 filing. Table 3.19 shows the unseparated NTS revenue
requirements for each year. Table 3.20 shows the number of loops. Table 3.21 shows the
unseparated NTS revenue requirement per loop.


The next several tables in this section are data for individual study areas. Tables 3.22
through 3.30 are derived from the USAC data. In each table, only payments made in 2005
through projections for 2009 are included. Also, only those study areas that received payments
for the support mechanism covered by the table for those years are included in the table.
Payments for 1998 through 2001 can be found in the 2006 Universal Service Monitoring Report,
payments for 2002 and 2003 can be found in the 2007 Universal Service Monitoring Report, and


47
These are the carriers that settle on a cost basis. Costs for the remaining ILECs, which settle
on an average schedule basis, are attributed by NECA on the basis of those carriers' average
number of loops per exchange.
48
The data submitted by NECA include payments that would have been made to non-rural
carriers if the forward-looking high cost model had not been implemented, which form
the basis of the hold-harmless calculations. Consequently the amounts shown in Table
3.6 are a better indication of the actual HCLS payments.

payments for 2004 can be found in the 2008 Universal Service Monitoring Report. Table 3.22
has HCLS payments. Table 3.23 has safety net additive support payments. Table 3.24 has
safety valve support payments. Table 3.25 provides, by non-rural study area, the high cost
support using the forward-looking high-cost model support mechanism. Table 3.26 has LTS
payments. Table 3.27 has ICLS payments. Table 3.28 has IAS payments for price-cap
companies. Table 3.29 has LSS payments. Table 3.30 has the total support payments for all
seven programs. Each of these tables contains the annual amounts for only those years for which
a support mechanism was in place. Table 3.27 has the final ICLS true-ups for 2005 through
2007, and Table 3.29 has the final LSS true-ups for 2005 through 2007.49 The other numbers
(except for 2009 data) are based on the actual payments, as reported by USAC, and include out-
of year adjustments for prior years. In all cases the 2009 total is based on the fourth quarter
projection. CETC study areas listed in the USAC Filing for the Fourth Quarter of 2009 as being
ineligible for support (because they applied for, but have not yet received, ETC status) have been
excluded from these tables.


Tables 3.31 through 3.35 are derived from NECA’s 2008 filing.50 Table 3.31 contains
individual study area data for 2007 for unseparated NTS costs (Revenue Requirement), the number
of loops, and costs per loop. It also shows the expected HCLS payments for 2009, based on 2007
data, and the percentage of the national total HCLS that goes to the study area. For study areas that
acquired exchanges from another study area and had to report the amounts for the acquired
exchanges separately, the study area code is appended with an A or B for the data for the acquired
exchanges. In the second column of Table 3.31, the types are cost (C) and average schedule (A),
indicating the form of settlements used by that study area. The third column indicates whether the
study area has been designated as rural (R) or non-rural (N). In addition to the name of the study
area, the name of the holding company (if any) is also shown. The costs shown are embedded costs
for all companies, and the payments shown include potential payments to non-rural companies that
form the basis of hold-harmless calculations.51 Table 3.32 shows the percentage changes from the
previous year for each of these amounts for individual study areas. In the payments column in this
table, the entry "INFINITE" indicates that the payment was zero in the first year and positive in the
second year.


Tables 3.33 through 3.35 present individual study area data for the historical information
filed for 2003 through 2007 in the 2008 filing. Table 3.33 shows the unseparated NTS revenue

Final true-ups are completed about two years after the initial payments are made. See

National Exchange Carrier Association, Inc., Universal Service Fund 2008 Submission of
2007 Study Results
(sent September 30, 2008, received October 1, 2008).

The data submitted by NECA include payments that would have been made if the
forward-looking high cost model had not been implemented. Consequently, Table 3.22 is
a better indication of actual HCLS payments.

requirements for each year. Table 3.34 shows the number of loops. Table 3.35 shows the
unseparated NTS revenue requirement per loop.


In compiling the historical data, it is necessary to account for changes that have occurred in
the study areas over time. These changes are noted in Table 3.36.52 In cases where study areas have
merged, the pre-merger data for all of the merged study areas have been combined and reported as
the data for the surviving study area in Tables 3.33 through 3.35. In cases where there has been an
ownership change resulting in a code number change, the pre-change data is reported under the new
code number and name. In the case of newly created study areas, pre-creation data is reported as 0.
In Table 3.32, percentage changes in the case of mergers are comparisons of the surviving study area
data with the consolidated pre-merger data. In the case of sales of exchanges, for comparison
purposes the data for the sold exchanges are consolidated with the data for the study area that
divested them.


Each year NECA submits detailed account data used to calculate the unseparated revenue
requirement per loop for each study area that settles on a cost basis, and total attributed revenue
requirements for study areas that settle on an average schedule basis. In its filings since 1993, in
addition to submitting such information for the latest year, NECA also submitted revised
information for the four preceding years. The detailed account data are not reported here, but the
most recent revision of the data for each year since 1988 is available in electronic form on the
Wireline Competition Bureau Statistical Reports website www.fcc.gov/wcb/stats.

52
Because the study areas were matched between years by study area code number, changes in
only the name of the company are not included in this list. However, for name changes
between 2006 and 2007, Table 3.32 shows the old name in parentheses.
