NTCA Registers Opposition to Overall Cap on the Universal Service Fund

In comments filed on July 29, 2019 NTCA registered its opposition to the implementation of an overall cap on the Universal Service Fund (USF). It noted that a cap is contrary to both law and policy and would place at risk the complementary missions of universal service as Congress intended in the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and would undermine the predictability of critical support for its beneficiaries.
