NTCA CEO Shirley Bloomfield Released the Following Statement Regarding Call Routing and Termination
September 28, 2011 (Arlington, Va.) – "We are gratified to see that the FCC agrees with us that the continuing failure to route and terminate calls to rural areas merits discussion and resolution in a public workshop. The FCC's announcement that it has formed a task force and that it will hold this workshop is a welcome step toward getting to the bottom of these problems. We look forward to shining a greater spotlight on these issues, and to a thorough public discussion involving both those who route these calls and those affected by such routing practices. Rural consumers deserve to have their calls consistently connected."
