FCC Extends Filing Deadline for ETC Certification


The FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau has extended the filing deadline for states or eligible telecommunications carriers not subject to jurisdiction of a state to certify the proper use of federal high-cost universal service support.  ETCs or states must now file their section 54.314 certification with USAC by October 31, 2022.  The Bureau extended the filing deadline reasoning that states were delayed in being able to review ETCs’ FCC Form 481 annual reports because that filing deadline was extended beyond its intended deadline.
