The Universal Service Fund (USF) was created to ensure all consumers have affordable access to our nation’s telecommunications networks. During the past six years, significant increases in USF payments to competitive eligible telecommunications carriers (CETCs) have raised important concerns about the future financial stability of the USF program.
Hudson Institute is pleased to invite you to attend the release of the findings of this paper, bringing together esteemed experts to review the study, and featuring keynote addresses by U.S. Representative Lee Terry (R-NE) and FCC Commissioner Deborah Tate. Panelists include the authors of the study, Robert Westcott and Robert Cohen; Harold Furchtgott-Roth, former commissioner for the FCC and Hudson Senior Fellow; Roger Nishi, Vice President of Industry Relations for Waitsfield and Champlain Valley Telecom and 2007 OPASTCO Chairman; Art Brodsky, communications director for Public Knowledge; and Gregory Rohde, former assistant secretary for communications and information and administrator of NTIA.
