Implementation Report


Introduction. The Federal Communications Commission’s (Commission) 2011 USF/ICC
Transformation Order comprehensively reformed and modernized the high-cost program within the
universal service fund and the intercarrier compensation (ICC) system to support networks capable of
providing voice and broadband services.1 Among other actions taken in that Order, the Commission
adopted a framework, known as the Connect America Fund (CAF), to provide ongoing support to areas
served by price cap carriers while maintaining existing support mechanisms for rate-of-return carriers,
with some modifications. The goals of the CAF are to: “(1) preserve and advance universal availability
of voice service; (2) ensure universal availability of modern networks capable of providing voice and
broadband service to homes, businesses, and community anchor institutions; (3) ensure universal
availability of modern networks capable of providing mobile voice and broadband service where
Americans live, work, and travel; (4) ensure that rates are reasonably comparable in all regions of the
nation, for voice as well as broadband services; and (5) minimize the universal service contribution
burden on consumers and businesses.”2

This report provides a summary of the actions the Commission and the Wireline Competition
Bureau (Bureau) have taken to implement the universal service and ICC reforms adopted in 2011 and
information regarding the impact of those reforms on eligible telecommunications carriers (ETCs) that are
incumbent telecommunications carriers.3 For example, since reforms were adopted, over $438 million in
funds have been made available to support construction of broadband-capable infrastructure to more than
637,000 previously unserved locations and over 1.6 million people. In addition, between 2010 and 2012,
fixed broadband service subscriptions increased by approximately 63 percent for incumbent ETCs.
Below, we describe in detail the specific modifications adopted, the status of Bureau implementation, and
the impact of these modifications.4

Connect America Phase I. Phase I of the Connect America Fund implementation consisted
primarily of two parts. First, the Commission froze support under existing high-cost support mechanisms
for price cap carriers and their rate-of-return affiliates and required that frozen support during Phase I be
used to build and operate broadband-capable networks used to offer the provider’s own retail broadband

3 The Commission instructed the Bureau to “report to the Commission … on the progress of implementation, and on
the impact of reforms based on relevant, available data at that time.” Connect America Fund et al., WC Docket No.

47 (Sixth Order on Reconsideration). The Commission initially adopted a November 18, 2013 deadline for the
report. The deadline subsequently was extended to March 18, 2014 because annual reports filed by ETCs were not
due until October 31, 2013. See Wireline Competition Bureau Announces Extension for Report on Progress of
Universal Service Reforms
, WC Docket No. 10-90, Public Notice, 28 FCC Rcd 14748 (Wireline Comp. Bur. 2013).

where 2013 data is available, it is included. This report does not include information on competitive ETCs
(CETCs), whose support is being phased down pursuant to the USF/ICC Transformation Order, 26 FCC Rcd at

service in areas substantially unserved by an unsubsidized competitor.5 Second, to spur the deployment
of broadband-capable infrastructure to unserved locations while the Bureau developed the forward-
looking cost model to calculate available support in Phase II, the Commission decided to offer additional,
incremental support to price cap carriers.6

In the first round of Connect America Phase I, support to extend broadband-capable infrastructure
was made available for areas lacking Internet access with speeds of at least 768 kbps downstream/200
kbps upstream. In July 2012, price cap carriers elected nearly $115 million in Phase I incremental
support, committing to bring broadband-capable infrastructure to nearly 400,000 previously unserved
Americans by 2015.7 A map of states where carriers plan to use first round Phase I funding is available at
https://www.fcc.gov/maps/connect-america-fund-caf-phase-i">https://www.fcc.gov/maps/connect-america-fund-caf-phase-i.

In May 2013, the Commission adopted rules for a second round of Connect America Phase I
incremental support.8 The Commission expanded the eligible locations to include areas lacking Internet
access with 3 Mbps downstream and 768 kbps upstream9 and concluded that parties could challenge
whether a location was in fact served by an existing provider and thus ineligible for support.10

Over 80 interested parties participated in the Phase I challenge process, either challenging the
status of a block as shown on the National Broadband Map or responding to the challenge of another
party.11 On January 10, 2014, the Bureau issued an Order adjudicating these challenges.12 As of March
14, 2014, the Bureau had authorized nearly $324 million in second round Phase I support for deployment
of broadband-capable infrastructure to over 1.2 million Americans.13 Included in this 1.2 million are

5 Id. at 17712, para. 128; see also 47 C.F.R. § 54.313(c). A price cap carrier recipient of frozen support must certify
that an increasing portion of its frozen support was used to build and operate broadband-capable networks used to
offer the provider’s own retail broadband service in areas substantially unserved by an unsubsidized
competitor. Recipients must certify that 1/3 of frozen support received in 2013 was used for such purposes,
increasing to 2/3 of frozen support in 2014, and all frozen support in 2015 and beyond. However, the use of frozen
support is not limited to new capital investment occurring in 2013 and beyond. In calculating the amount of frozen
support used to build and operate such networks, carriers are permitted to include the funds used to maintain and
operate existing networks in areas substantially unserved by an unsubsidized competitor, as well as funds used to
recover the costs of past network upgrades to extend broadband-capable networks in areas substantially unserved by
an unsubsidized competitor. Connect America Fund et al., WC Docket No. 10-90 et al., Order, 28 FCC Rcd 14887,

Connect America Phase II. In the USF/ICC Transformation Order, the Commission determined
that it would provide support in Phase II through a combination of “a new forward-looking model of the
cost of constructing modern multi-purpose networks” and a competitive bidding process.16 Using the cost
model to “estimate the support necessary to serve areas where costs are above a specified benchmark, but
below a second ‘extremely high-cost’ benchmark,” the Commission will offer each price cap carrier “a
model-derived support amount in exchange for a commitment to serve all locations in its service territory
in a state that, based on the model, fall within the high-cost range and are not served by an competing,
unsubsidized provider.”17

The Commission delegated to the Bureau “the task of selecting a specific engineering cost model
and associated inputs that meet the criteria specified” by the Commission.18 The Commission also
directed the Bureau to consider “whether the model ultimately adopted adequately accounts for the costs
faced by carriers serving [areas outside of the United States].”19 On April 22, 2013, the Bureau adopted a
platform for the Connect America Cost Model (CACM or CAM), which is the basic framework for the
model consisting of key assumptions about the design of the network and network engineering, and also
addressing certain framework issues relating to inputs.20

In December 2013, the Bureau announced the latest version of the Connect America Cost Model,
v4.0, and sought comment on adopting the default inputs in v4.0 for implementation in Phase II.21 Once
the Bureau finalizes the model inputs, it expects to commence the Phase II challenge process to determine
the final list of Census blocks eligible for the offer of model-based support.22

In addition to its work on the Connect America Cost Model, the Bureau has taken further actions
to implement Phase II. On May 16, 2013, the Bureau released the Phase II Challenge Process Order
implementing the Commission’s requirement that Phase II provide an opportunity for interested parties to
challenge the determination of whether an area is served by an unsubsidized competitor, and thus

22 As noted above, the state-level commitment process gives a price cap carrier an opportunity to accept Phase II
funding in exchange for a commitment to deploy voice and broadband service meeting specified requirements to all
high-cost locations, excluding extremely high-cost locations as determined by the Connect America Cost Model, in
its service territory for a given state. See USF/ICC Transformation Order, 26 FCC Rcd at 17673, para. 24.

ineligible for the offer of model-based Phase II support.23 This Order established a process for filing
challenges and the format in which challenges must be made.24

On October 31, 2013, the Bureau released the Phase II Service Obligations Order, which
specified performance metrics for price cap carriers accepting Phase II model-based support in exchange
for a state-level commitment.25 The Bureau adopted requirements for latency, usage allowance, and
pricing for such carriers.26 The Bureau also articulated how those requirements would apply to determine
whether an area would be considered to be served by an unsubsidized competitor.27

Phase Out of Safety Net Additive. In the USF/ICC Transformation Order, the Commission
decided to phase out a high-cost universal service support mechanism known as the Safety Net Additive
(SNA) because it was generally providing support for carriers based on line loss rather than new
investment.28 The Commission determined that carriers that qualified for SNA support due to a 14
percent or greater increase in investment over the prior year would continue to receive support, while
carriers qualifying for SNA based on line loss would have their SNA support eliminated in 2013.29
Acting Chairwoman Clyburn circulated an order to the other Commissioners further addressing the SNA
rules.

provide further support to incumbent carriers that made significant investment in their infrastructure. The rule
provides additional support for the qualifying year and four subsequent years. See Federal-State Joint Board on
Universal Service; Multi-Association Group (MAG) Plan for Regulation of Interstate Services of Non-Price Cap

Benchmarking Rule. The Commission adopted a benchmarking rule to place limits on capital and
operating expenses eligible for reimbursement through high-cost loop support (HCLS) and redistribute
available HCLS to carriers that stay within these limits.30 The Bureau initially implemented this rule in
April 2012.31 On February 27, 2013, the Commission reconsidered some aspects of the rule, directing the
Bureau to develop a regression methodology to generate a single total loop cost cap for each study area
beginning in 2014 and modify the phase-in of the benchmarks for 2013 to provide carriers additional time
to adjust to the changes.32 On July 26, 2013, the Bureau adopted an order maintaining the 2013
regression methodology for 2014 to provide predictability for carriers while the Bureau incorporates new
geographic data and obtains public input on the development of the single cap.33 The order also exempts
Alaska from the benchmark rule for 2014.34 Chairman Wheeler has circulated to his fellow
Commissioners an order that would eliminate the benchmarking rule.

Figure 5 below demonstrates that from July 1, 2012 to December 31, 2013, there were 876 study
areas affected by the partial phase-in of the benchmarking rule. One hundred and seven study areas saw a
decrease in support of approximately $33 million, while 769 other study areas saw an increase of
approximately $33 million. Table A2 of the Appendix to this report shows the estimated difference of
HCLS support for each study area due to the benchmark rule. Similar information was submitted to the
House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce for the second half of 2012.35

$250 per Line Cap. In the USF/ICC Transformation Order, the Commission adopted a new rule
establishing a presumptive per-line cap of $250 per month on total high-cost universal service support,
exclusive of Connect America support associated with intercarrier compensation reform, for all ETCs,
including incumbent local exchange carriers (LECs).36 The Commission concluded that support in excess
of that amount should not be provided without further justification.37

The following table shows those study areas where incumbent carrier support was affected by the
$250 per-line, per-month cap in 2013.

Petitions for Waiver. In the USF/ICC Transformation Order, the Commission stated that any
carrier negatively affected by the universal service reforms could file a petition for waiver to demonstrate
that good cause exists for exempting the carrier from some or all of those reforms.38 In the Fifth Order on
Reconsideration
, the Commission clarified that it would consider the impact of reforms not only on voice
service alone, but also on the continued operation of a broadband-capable network and on consumer
rates.39

38 Id. at 17840, para. 539.
39 It further stated that it envisioned granting relief only in those circumstances in which a carrier could demonstrate
that consumers face a significant risk of losing access to a broadband-capable network that provides both voice as
well as broadband, at reasonably comparable rates, in areas where there are no alternative providers of voice or

Fourteen rate-of-return carriers (including CETC affiliates) requested waivers of support
reductions, including several who requested a waiver of the $250 per-line, per-month cap.40 The Bureau
worked to gather information and act upon these and other USF/ICC Transformation Order waiver
requests as expeditiously as possible. To date, all but one of those petitions have been addressed.41

Study Area Boundary Collection. In November 2012, the Bureau adopted an order requiring
incumbent LECs to submit study area boundary data necessary to implement universal service reforms,
including elimination of support where an unsubsidized competitor offers voice and broadband service
that 100 percent overlaps an incumbent LEC’s study area.42 In December 2013, the Bureau published a
study area boundary map and requested that carriers resolve overlaps and submit and certify revised
boundary data no later than January 13, 2014.43 Shortly thereafter, an industry petition was filed

requesting a stay, or in the alternative, a six-month extension of the January 2014 deadline.44 In response,
the Bureau extended the deadline to March 17, 2014.45

Pricing of Services. Section 254(b) of the Act requires that “[c]onsumers in all regions of the
Nation . . . should have access to telecommunications and information services . . . that are available at
rates that are reasonably comparable to rates charged for similar services in urban areas.”46 In the
USF/ICC Transformation Order, the Commission adopted a rule to limit high-cost support where end-
user rates do not meet an urban rate floor representing the national average of local rates plus such state
regulated fees.47 To the extent a carrier’s end-user rates for local service do not meet the rate floor,
dollar-for-dollar reductions in HCLS or frozen support are made.48 The Commission determined it was
inappropriate to use limited federal high-cost support to subsidize local rates beyond what is necessary to
ensure reasonable comparability.49 The Commission’s rule phased in the rate floor in three steps,
beginning with an initial rate floor of $10 for the period July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013; $14 for the
period July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014; and an amount to be established through the annual rate
survey for the years beginning July 1, 2014, and thereinafter.50

In September 2013, USAC reported that there were 276 study areas with support reductions,
based on rates in effect on June 1, 2013.51 Within these study areas, a total number of 219,583 lines were
subject to rate floor reductions that totaled $4.3 million (HCLS and frozen support).52 Of that $4.3
million, $2 million in the total annual reduction represented reductions in support for rate-of-return
carriers: those carriers receiving HCLS reported rates below the appropriate threshold for a total of
55,836 lines between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013 in 257 study areas.53

On April 3, 2013, the Bureau adopted the form and content for the survey of urban rates for fixed
voice and fixed broadband residential services.54 From December 2013-January 2014, the Bureau
collected the rates offered by providers of fixed services identified using the recent FCC Form 477 data in
500 Census tracts. Completed surveys were due on January 17, 2014.55 The following table summarizes

As noted in the figure above, the Bureau calculated that the average local end-user rates plus state
regulated fees of the surveyed incumbent LECs in urban areas is $20.46. The USF/ICC Transformation
Order
defined the average urban rate to include local end-user rates plus state regulated fees (specifically,
state subscriber line charges (SLCs), state USF, and mandatory extended area service charges) and
excluded the federal SLC.56 Because the Bureau found that non-incumbent LEC provider recurring
monthly rates collected in the survey typically were higher than incumbent LEC reported recurring
monthly rates (possibly because non-incumbent LEC providers charged rates similar to the incumbent
LECs’ monthly charge plus the federal SLC), the Bureau calculated the average using only urban
incumbent LEC rates for an average of $20.46.

In the USF/ICC Transformation Order, the Commission also determined that “ETCs must offer
voice telephony service, including voice telephone service offered on a standalone basis, at rates that are
reasonably comparable to urban rates”57 and adopted a presumption that “a voice rate is within a
reasonable range if it falls within two standard deviations above the national average.”58 Based on the
survey responses, the Bureau also calculated the reasonable comparability benchmark for voice services
to be $46.96.59 For purposes of the reasonable comparability benchmark, the Bureau concluded that the
rates of all local flat-rate providers (both incumbent LEC and non-incumbent LEC providers) and,
consistent with existing precedent, federal SLCs should be included.60

Oversight and Accountability
. In the USF/ICC Transformation Order, the Commission
established a uniform national framework for information that ETCs must report to their respective states
and the Commission, while affirming that states will continue to play a critical role overseeing ETCs that

they designate. 61 The Commission modified and extended existing federal reporting requirements to all
ETCs, whether designated by a state or the Commission, to reflect the new public interest obligations.62
Specific changes include extending voice reporting requirements to all ETCs, adopting requirements to
reflect new broadband obligations, and requiring all ETCs subject to new broadband obligations to file
five-year plans.63

In 2013, ETCs began filing their annual reports on a standardized form – FCC Form 481 – with
the Commission, USAC, the relevant state commissions, relevant authority in a U.S. Territory, or Tribal
governments, as appropriate.64 Based in part on those filings, state commissions and ETCs not subject to
the jurisdiction of a state commission certified to the Commission that high-cost support received was
used and will be used for the intended purposes.65

Financial Data for Rate-of-Return Carriers. Form 481 now requires privately held rate-of-return
carriers to submit financial information. The first such information was submitted in October 2013 by
528 rate-of-return carriers.66 Figure 8 below summarizes information on several key statistics for a
sample of rate-of-return carrier Form 481 financial data.67

Of the 50 carriers sampled, 30 saw an increase in telephone plant in service, while 20 saw a decrease in
telephone plant in service. Although the average increase in telephone plant in service was 6.6%,
individual companies experienced a change in plant in service ranging from -29% to 23%. Of the 50
carriers sampled, 16 also saw an increase in revenue, while 34 saw a decrease in revenue. While the
average increase in revenue was 4.4%, individual companies experienced a change in revenue ranging
from -24% to 22%. Finally, 42 companies had positive net income in 2011 and 9 had negative net
income (net loss). In 2012, slightly fewer companies in the sample (21) had growth in net income than
those that had a reduction (30). Overall, for the companies in the sample, the total net income fell slightly
(7.6%) between 2011 and 2012.


66 Section 54.313(f)(2) of the Commission’s rules requires non-public rate-of-return carriers to file annually a report
regarding their financial condition and operations for the preceding year. Privately-held rate-of-return carriers were
required to file 2011 and 2012 financial statements with their first 2013 submission. See Fifth Order on
Reconsideration
, 27 FCC Rcd at 14553, para. 12.
67 Bureau staff evaluated a sample of the more than 500 filings. Given the PDF format of the filings, it would have
been difficult to aggregate the financial information for all 500 filers without significant manual re-entry of the
data. The sample set of carriers whose data are summarized above includes a geographically diverse set of 50
carriers from across the nation. The Bureau examined total company financial information (for both regulated and
non-regulated services) for the sample set of carriers. The individual carriers ranged in size from a high of 46,802
access lines to a low of 80 access lines. Notwithstanding the geographic and size diversity of the carrier sample, it is
not possible to infer any statistical significance to the estimates derived from it. The list of carriers included in the
sample set is included in the Appendix to this report. See Appendix, Figure A2.

68 The information in this table and other tables in this report show actual disbursement data, which typically differs
from projected demand. Disbursements often differ from actual demand and actual support in any given period
because disbursements take into account true-ups for past overpayments and underpayments, which are driven in
large part by the NECA corrections process. Disbursements were lower in 2013 than USAC’s projections because
there were overpayments in 2012 that resulted in downward adjustments to carrier disbursements in early 2013.
16


We note that support for rate-of-return carriers has been subject to the HCLS cap and rural
growth factor for more than a decade, which were not altered in the USF/ICC Transformation Order.69 In
2001, the Commission modified the distribution of HCLS by re-basing the fund for rural telephone
companies and retaining an indexed cap.70 Specifically, the Commission concluded that the total cap on
HCLS would be adjusted annually by a rural growth factor equal to annual changes in gross domestic
product (GDP) and the consumer price index (CPI) and changes in the total number of working loops.71
Given decreases in working loops in rate-of-return areas in recent years, the indexed cap has limited
HCLS for many rate-of-return carriers. Figure 10 displays information regarding the amounts of HCLS
and interstate common line support (ICLS) disbursed to incumbent providers from 2011-2013.72

Elimination of Local Switching Support
. Local Switching Support (LSS) allowed rural
incumbent LECs serving 50,000 access lines or fewer to allocate a larger percentage of their switching
costs (including related overhead costs) to the interstate jurisdiction and recover those costs through the

69 See Rural Task Force Order, 16 FCC Rcd 11244.
70 See id. at 11249, para. 12.
71 Id.
72 Prior to the USF/ICC Transformation Order, some price cap carriers received HCLS. Companies received
support depending on whether they were classified as either “rural” or “non-rural” under the Commission’s rules
(rural companies received high-cost loop support, while non-rural companies received high-cost model support) and
how they were regulated at the interstate level (rate-of-return carriers received ICLS, while price cap carriers
received interstate access support). See Connect America Fund; A National Broadband Plan for Our Future;
Establishing Just and Reasonable Rates for Local Exchange Carriers; High-Cost Universal Service Support;
Developing a Unified Intercarrier Compensation Regime; Federal-State Joint Board on Universal Service; Lifeline
and Link-Up
, WC Docket Nos. 10-90, 07-135, 05-337, 03-109, GN Docket No. 09-51, CC Docket Nos. 01-92, 96-
45, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, 26 FCC Rcd 4554, 4610, para.
164 (2011). For example, if a price carrier was classified as a “rural” carrier, it would have been eligible to receive
HCLS. Thus, one cannot directly compare the HCLS support amounts for the period pre-2012 to the amounts
received by rate-of-return carriers post-2012.

federal universal service fund.73 Effective July 1, 2012, the Commission eliminated LSS as a stand-alone
support program.74 It also allowed for recovery of some the costs previously covered by LSS through the
Connect America Fund ICC recovery mechanism.75

Intercarrier Compensation Reform. The USF/ICC Transformation Order established a number
of new rules requiring carriers to cap most ICC rates and reduce certain switched access charges as part of
a transition to a bill-and-keep methodology.76 The Commission capped the vast majority of interstate and
intrastate switched access rates as of December 29, 2011.77 By July 2012, carriers were required to
reduce certain intrastate switched access rates by 50 percent of the differential between the carriers’
relevant intrastate access rates and interstate access rates, provided that the aggregate intrastate revenues
were above the aggregate interstate revenues.78 The reductions to intrastate rates were implemented at the
state level via intrastate tariffs and related state proceedings.

76 See id. at 17934-35, para. 801 and Fig. 9 (although many of the switched access rate elements are subject to the
transition adopted, other rates are not being specifically reduced at this time). See also 47 C.F.R § 51.909;
USF/ICC Transformation FNPRM, 26 FCC Rcd at 18109-115, paras. 1297-1314 (seeking comment on the
appropriate transition for rate elements not reduced in the USF/ICC Transformation Order).
77 USF/ICC Transformation Order, 26 FCC Rcd at 17934-35, para. 801 and Fig. 9. For price cap carriers, all
intrastate rates are capped as of the effective date, while for rate-of-return carriers, only terminating intrastate access
rates are capped. Id.
78 Id. The transition specified separate treatment for reciprocal compensation rates, requiring carriers to reduce
reciprocal compensation rates, if above the carrier’s interstate access rates, by 50 percent of the differential between
the reciprocal compensation rate and the carrier’s interstate access rate. See id. The rules defining the rate transition
did not specify required reductions based on rate levels, but compared certain intrastate revenues resulting from
switched demand for Fiscal Year 2011 to the same demand priced at corresponding interstate rates for the same
period. See 47 C.F.R. § 51.909(b); see also Connect America Fund et al., WC Docket No. 10-90 et al., Order, 27
FCC Rcd 5986, 5989-90, paras. 8-9 (Wireline Comp. Bur. 2012).

ICC Transition Timeline



The Commission also adopted a mechanism, known as Eligible Recovery, to mitigate the impact
of reduced intercarrier revenues on carriers.79 A carrier’s Eligible Recovery is based on a percentage of
the reduction in revenue each year resulting from the ICC reform transition. The Commission’s rules
state that the amount that rate-of-return carriers are eligible to recover must be adjusted down by
approximately 5 percent each year.80 The recovery mechanism therefore significantly alleviates the
burden placed upon rate-of-return carriers by the phase down of ICC and LSS. Incumbent LECs entitled
to Eligible Recovery may assess an Access Recovery Charge (ARC) on consumers in the form of a
monthly fixed charge.81 If an incumbent LEC cannot recover its entire Eligible Recovery through ARCs
and is otherwise eligible, it may opt to receive the remainder from Connect America Fund support.82 The

79 USF/ICC Transformation Order, 26 FCC Rcd at 17677, para. 36. In adopting the recovery mechanism, the
Commission explained that it did so in large part “to provide predictability to incumbent carriers that had been
receiving implicit ICC subsidies [and] to mitigate marketplace disruption during the reform transition.” Id. at

Since August 2012, thirteen rate-of-return LECs have filed ten petitions for waiver of parts of the
Commission’s rules to allow inclusion of additional revenues in petitioners’ ICC recovery mechanism
“Base Period Revenue” calculations83 for determining Eligible Recovery. These petitions, all currently
pending, fall into the following four categories: (1) four requested approval to include uncollected
intrastate access charges billed to Halo Wireless; (2) six requested approval to include late-collected
revenues due to accounting errors; (3) one requested approval to include late-collected revenues due to a
carrier settlement; and (4) two requested approval to adjust their 2011 interstate switched access revenue
requirements “to recognize the conversion from average schedule to cost-based settlements” that took
place prior to the Commission’s adoption of the USF/ICC Transformation Order.84 Four of these
petitions are addressed in an order that Chairman Wheeler is circulating to the other Commissioners,
while the Bureau is actively addressing the others.

Broadband Connections and Deployment. In the USF/ICC Transformation Order, the
Commission required, as a condition of receiving HCLS, ICLS, or Connect America support, that carriers
provide broadband service at speeds of at least 4 Mbps downstream and 1 Mbps upstream with latency
suitable for real-time applications, such as VoIP, and with usage capacity reasonably comparable to that
available in residential terrestrial fixed broadband offerings in urban areas, upon reasonable request.85

Washington, DC 20554
Re: 2013 Rate Floor Report, Docket No. 05-337, 10-90
Dear Ms. Dortch:
In the Connect America Fund Order, the Commission promulgated rule § 54.318 that
reduces high-cost support for incumbent ETCs where end-user rates do not meet a
specified local rate floor.1 Specifically, beginning in July 2013 high-cost loop support
(HCLS) and high-cost model support (HCMS) will be reduced where a carrier’s local
end-user rates plus state regulated fees do not meet the urban rate floor representing the
national average of local rates plus those state regulated fees.2
The attached filing
provides rate floor information for all carriers that are below the local urban rate floor
benchmark of $14. Following is a summary of the attached filing:
Line count and rate floor adjustment are redacted per CenturyLink/Qwest Corp.’s
request for confidentiality.3
Line count and rate floor adjustment are redacted per National Exchange Carrier
Association’s (NECA) request for confidentiality. 4
The total number of study areas with rate floor reductions is 276.

and Reasonable rates for Local Exchange Carriers High-Cost Universal Service Support Developing an
