Ex Parte Contact in USF Contribution Methodology
Thursday, August 30, 2012
On Wednesday, August 29, 2012, Greg Jackson (Vice President, EDUCAUSE) and John Windhausen (Telepoly Consulting), on behalf of EDUCAUSE, met with Vickie Robinson, Ernesto Beckford and Charles Eberle of the FCC's Telecommunications Access Policy Division to discuss the Universal Service Contribution Methodology proceeding. Most of the points made by EDUCAUSE reiterated comments filed by EDUCAUSE and the other Higher Education Associations earlier this proceeding. This notice provides a summary of those points and of that conversation. The notice also references the ECAR Bulletin, "Networking, Telephony and USF Patterns: A Sample Snapshot," authored by Jackson in July 2012 and which was shared with the FCC staff during the August meeting.
