According to a recent Public Notice, the FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureau) is actively working on refining the Alternative Connect America Cost Model (A-CAM) that may be available for voluntary use by incumbent rate-of-return local exchange carriers. Among other things, the Bureau is currently working on a change to enable users to specify study area specific plant mix input values. Rate-of-return carriers are invited to submit proposed corrections to plant mix input values for their individual study areas by August 28, 2015.
