- Completed Forms 499-A for 2011 are due April 2, 2012. These forms report a carrier’s annual revenue and are required to be filed by all interstate telecommunications carriers, interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers, providers of interstate telecommunications that offer service for a fee on a non-common carrier basis (including stand-alone audio bridging companies), and payphone providers that are aggregators. Non-interconnected VoIP providers also are required to file this form for the assessment of fees to support the Telecommunications Relay System (TRS). The revenues reported on Form 499-A provide the basis for true-up of a company’s Universal Service contributions and serve as the basis for assessing the annual fees for the TRS, Local Number Portability (LNP) fund, the North American Numbering Plan Administration fund, and the FCC’s annual fee.
- The Universal Service contribution factor for the First Quarter of 2012 is 17.9%. A copy of the notice can be found here.

"Lexology is a quick and useful indicator of developments in the legal sphere. It alerts me to changes taking place in the legal environment in South Africa that I may not otherwise have spotted or had immediate access to as a company lawyer. It definitely serves as a trigger for me to investigate such changes in the legal landscape in South Africa as they may affect my work and that of my employer. I believe that receiving Lexology provides me with a competitive advantage."
