Needs and Uses: Pursuant to Section 276(b)(1)(A) of the Act, the Commission is required to ensure that all payphone service providers are fairly compensated. In order to calculate fair compensation for the payphones that are not supported by Flex ANI, the Commission must obtain monthly payphone call volume data. Once the impacted entities (primarily the Regional Bell Operating Companies and the large interexchange companies) submit this data, the Commission will calculate an average monthly call volume as one of the key inputs required to establish per-payphone monthly compensation.Start Signature
