Rural Call Completion – ATS Chalk Talk

In this episode of ATS Chalk Talk, Ken Babcock, VP of Regulatory Services, discusses the FCC’s recent order on Rural Call Completion (FCC 13-135). The interview covers:


  • What is the FCC’s interest in Rural Call Completion? What are the “dire consequences” the FCC speaks of?
  • How did we get here? What Industry sub-groups have studied this?
  • Who is subject to this “docket”?
  • The FCC has created standard complaint forms for the rural carrier to initiate a complaint. How would a rural carrier know this is happening?
