New Line Count Filing Deadline Pushed to July 31 for A-CAM and Alaska Plan Carriers

The FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureau) on June 30, 2020 granted a brief, limited waiver of the deadline for rate-of-return carriers receiving Alternative Connect America Model (A-CAM) I and II or Alaska Plan support to file line count data. Specifically, the Bureau will allow carriers until July 31, 2020 to file the FCC Form 507 line count data. In its December 2018 Rate-of-Return Reform Order, the FCC required certain A-CAM and Alaska Plan rate-of-return carriers to file line counts on the FCC Form 507, and the rule became effective on July 1, 2020.  Finding that many of the affected carriers would not have sufficient notice to comply, the Bureau will allow carriers until July 31, 2020 to file the data.
