ILEC Retail Rates - How high will they go?

Posted by Karen Ritter

Every week, I review filings from major carriers across the nation. As I summarize them for our monthly newsletter, inevitably the phrase that appears most often is “AT&T increased……” Every month, rate increases are filed somewhere that affect basic local service rates, optional calling plans, bundled offerings, or local toll. Did you know AT&T Illinois increased their local access line rate for business service three times in a 13-month period, taking the rate from $37.00 to $54.25 per month?

AT&T Offers Additional Insight Into IP Transition Trials

Posted by Amy Gross

In a meeting with FCC Staff, AT&T provided additional details about its proposed IP transition trials in Alabama and Florida. The information relates to AT&T’s: (1) ongoing outreach efforts to consumers in the Carbon Hill, AL and West Delray Beach, FL (also referred to as Kings Point) wire centers; and (2) continuing efforts to develop data collection and reports for various aspects of those trials. Significantly, AT&T’s Ex Parte Statement  also addressed concerns raised by various parties regarding its plans for discontinuing TDM service to customers in the trial wire centers by stating that it “does not currently anticipate seeking approval to grandfather any TDM service earlier than the second half of 2015.” AT&T also assured the FCC that it “fully understands and acknowledges that compliance with the Section 214 process is a necessary prerequisite to discontinuing services in the trial wire centers, as well as in the general TDM-to-IP transition.”
