Verizon and Incompas have come together again to propose a new 8 element outline for a framework for Business Data Services (BDS).
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler says as wireless operators hone their 5G plans, which will leverage higher band frequencies, there will be a need for more cost effective wireline-based backhaul solutions.
Public Knowledge, a nonprofit Washington, D.C.-based public interest group, says that if the FCC wants to successfully regulate the broadband data services (BDS) market it needs to have a technology neutral policy regime.
CenturyLink has filed a motion to strike what it says is an "irretrievably flawed" data framework in the FCC's recent business data services (BDS) proposal, saying that cable operators understated their capabilities to serve the Ethernet services market.
Incumbent provider CenturyLink said it wants to work with the Federal Communications Commission on its proposed changes to special access pricing, but has a few opinions on specific matters set out by the FCC in early May. Those matters include wireless backhaul and the method by which competition in various markets is determined – including cable competitors.
DALLAS-- AT&T and Comcast often don't agree on much, but the telco and cable MSO say that the FCC's proposals on special access could actually hinder a market where there's already plenty of service choices.
DALLAS-- Verizon took a different path from its ILEC brethren in the special access market segment when it developed a proposal with Incompas have to regulate special access services.
Frontier Communications may be a large ILEC that has to provide special access to competitive providers, but it does not see the pending FCC review as having a large impact on how it delivers these services or its revenue base.
Windstream has expanded its metro fiber network in the Richmond, Virginia area, furthering its strategy to extend services directly into more local data centers and commercial business buildings.
