The Commission revised its FCC Form 477 program in 2008 to collect comprehensive information about retail interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (“interconnected VoIP”) service starting with data for year-end 2008.  In this report, we highlight summary statistics for interconnected  VoIP and explain the newly available data. At the same time, we continue to summarize the comprehensive information that Form 477 collects about more-traditional wireline local telephone service (“switched access lines”) in the tables and charts that constitute the body of the report, including the extent to which retail switched access lines are sold in bundles with (“presubscribed for”) long distance calling.     

We note that previous reports in this series included certain ZIP Code-based information about traditional wireline telephone service.  We update the ZIP Code-based information in this report by including interconnected VoIP service retailers.  We note that there is at present no Form 477 requirement to report 
any telephone service information at the census-tract level of detail.  We also update summary statistics for the mobile telephony subscribership information collected by Form 477.
