Abstract

The USA is in the process of revising its Universal Service Obligation (USO) policies to comply with the US Telecommunications Act of 1996 (TCA). This paper describes and critiques US progress on one aspect of USO reform - determining the cost of USOs. After describing principles for estimating USO costs, some issues specific to estimating proxy costs are discussed, and the paper then describes and critiques the recommended decisions of the Federal/State Joint Board.
