The Enforcement Bureau released an Enforcement Advisory last week regarding Form 477, which must be filed semi-annually by facilities-based providers of broadband connections, telephone service providers, and interconnected VoIP service providers. The form allows the FCC to collect information about broadband connections to end-user locations, wired and wireless local telephone services, and interconnected VoIP service in individual states. The Bureau is actively taking enforcement actions against providers who fail to file the required form. For example, last week, the Bureau entered into a Consent Decree with Rio Verde Wireless LLC for its failure to file Form 477. Under the settlement, Rio Verde must pay a $10,500 penalty.
