Approved for Business

Communications service providers who offer their services to end users are not allowed to provide service until they have been authorized to do so by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and applicable state Public Utility and Public Service Commissions (PUCs/PSCs).

Reporting burden, management nightmare, and a timesuck

  • VoIP providers and Wireless telecommunications services providers can juggle up to 600 regulatory reporting deadlines and over 400 distinct reports, certifications and filings.
  • Communications service providers face regulatory compliance reporting and fee remittance obligations at the FCC, USAC (the Universal Service Fund administrator) and other FCC approved Fund Administrators as well as nearly half of the state PUCs.
  • Failing to meet the reporting obligations and pay fees to a myriad of government agencies can lead to serious consequences, including fines, penalties, and even revocation of operating authority. Non-compliance also diminishes the value of your company and frequently becomes an issue in merger or acquisition negotiations.
