Federal Communications Commission, Bypass of the Public Switched Network (Jan. 1986).
The FCC released two reports that provided primarily descriptive information on bypass. This was the second of those reports. It was prepared after the FCC postponed implementing subscriber line charges for residential and single-line businesses in February 1984. This report included a wide variety of data and comments provided in response to public notices.
On the basis of the record generated for the report, the FCC stated that it confirmed the findings of its prior report and drew several additional conclusions. These included that service bypass would be the most prevalent form of bypass and that the amount of future bypass is likely to increase rates for other customers.
