International Bureau Affirms VoIP International Reporting Requirements


The Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC or Commission) International Bureau (Bureau) has dismissed a petition filed by the Voice on the Net Coalition (Petitioner).  The petition sought reconsideration of the Commission’s decision to extend international traffic and revenue reporting requirements to entities providing international calling service via Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) connected to the public switched telephone network and to require submarine cable landing licensees to file reports identifying capacity they own or lease on each submarine cable.  The Bureau noted that the Petitioner relied on facts and arguments that it could have presented to the Commission earlier in the proceeding, but instead declined to do so.
