NTCA Supports Limited Changes in FCC Rules to Eliminate Access Arbitrage

On May 16, 2019, NTCA filed an Ex Parte letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) encouraging the Commission to adopt rules that would eliminate clearly identified arbitrage resulting from transport charges as they apply specifically to stimulation.  NTCA pointed out that these proposed rules must focus only on alleged "access arbitrage" and must not be included as part of any larger changes to interconnection rules applicable to all providers.
