On October 25th, The FCC adopted the order under consideration modifying the original performance testing requirements. With these new changes, most carriers will benefit from a delay in the program for one or more years. However, the changes will also impact how carriers route test traffic to server cities and how subscribers are recruited for testing.
In July 2018, the FCC released DA18-710 describing its new rules for CAF testing. For those who are recipients of Connect America Fund (CAF) high-cost universal service support, let's discuss more about these changes. With continued lobbying in DC, the opportunity is now for affected service providers to plan how they're going to meet these new obligations by January 1, 2020.
