On October 3, 2016, the Commission’s amended rules became effective which allow for the designation of Lifeline Broadband Providers (LBPs). The Commission required that each carrier seeking designation as a LBP submit a petition for approval to the Wireline Competition Bureau. The Bureau welcomes all interested parties file comment in WC Docket No. 09-197 on the LBP petitions currently being considered. The following are a list of carriers with LBP petitions pending with the Bureau:
