FCC Acknowledges Importance of Rural Voice

Reply Comment Extension Granted in T-Mobile

Data Roaming Proceeding

The FCC has granted the joint request filed by RWA, NTCA-the Rural Broadband Association and the Blooston Rural Carriers seeking an extension of the reply comment filing deadline on T-Mobile’s petition for expedited declaratory ruling regarding commercially reasonable data roaming obligations.

The original filing deadline fell in the middle of NTCA’s regional conference and just before the RWA/RICA Rural Communications show at the ITEXPO.  The Petitioners argued that an extension of the filing deadline would allow association members to discuss the issues in-person during the conferences, which would result in better informed and more thorough reply comments.

The new reply comment filing deadline is August 20, 2014.
