Fiber Overbuild Concerns Raised

On March 7, 2019, FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly sent USAC CEO Radha Sekar a letter outlining his concern over Universal Service dollars being used to overbuild existing networks. Commissioner O’Rielly raised concerns that he heard from three service providers in Texas about this issue. The three Texas companies that talked with various FCC officials in November 2018 are Totelcom Communications, LLC, Peoples Telephone Cooperative, Inc and Central Texas Telephone Cooperative, Inc. Their FCC Exparte can be viewed here.
