CenturyLink, Carriers Will File Motion to Strike Flawed Data Analysis from FCC Business Data Services Proposal

WASHINGTONCenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) will file a motion to strike the “irretrievably flawed” data framework underlying the Federal Communications Commission’s recent business data services proposal. AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T), Cincinnati Bell, Inc. (NYSE: CBB), Consolidated Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSL), FairPoint Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: FRP) and Frontier Communications (NASDAQ: FTR) joined CenturyLink in filing the motion.

The motion comes in response to recent acknowledgements by four of the largest cable providers that they significantly undercounted the number of locations that are capable of providing business data services and thus deemed competitive. In fact, the cable companies’ most recent FCC filings reflect 22 times more Ethernet-capable locations than the data on which the FCC based its May 2 further notice of proposed rulemaking (FNPRM).
