October 27, 2008

As the Internet and cellular mash-up, open models attract innovative mobile service entrepreneurs such as the ones noted on my other blog and its coments at http://suzanne.supertec.com/2008/10/response-to-my-request-to-compare.html.

Making Sense of FCC Access Rules and Regulations

October 8, 2008

$tizing telecommunications whether IP or not can be tough in an age where government regulation stifles growth, innovation, and taxes us to death. 

Have you and/or your accounting team gone nuts over things to do with Federal Excise, State Communications Tax, 499 USAC fees, and on and on and on?
So, let's make sense out of it! CCMI's Understanding Telco Access & Interconnection Conference scheduled for October 20 - 21, 2008 is a great way to do that.

- FCC attempts to completely rework access rules and regulations... including USF
- How intercarrier compensation works for local service

Direct Inward Dialing, Not Termination is Where the $ is

Tons of people lately are emailing me asking for prices of DID/DDI on http://www.didx.net. The list of DID/DDI and the lowest rate is at http://www.didx.net/did, but even if one has only a wholesale research account (not in active mode), one can see a lot more, including choice of vendor, vendor quality 0-8, features such as number of channels and minutes included...

For example, USA DID are available in 244 area codes with prices ranging from 99 cent to $5.00 per month and as many as unlimited minutes and 20 channels. This range is available because the third party vendors choose how they wish to sell on DIDX giving buyers more than one choice.
