Rates Frozen for Various Forms of Telecommunications Relay Service

The FCC froze rates for various forms of telecommunications relay service until it finishes studying options for recovering the programs' costs. The action covers traditional TRS, speech-to-speech service, interstate captioned telephone service, IP relay and video relay service. The FCC didn't comment on rates the National Exchange Carrier Association proposed, saying it decided to keep the current rates "pending resolution of the cost recovery methodology issues" to be addressed in the pending further notice of proposed rulemaking. Sorenson Communications, a provider of video relay services, said the FCC rightly opted for "stability and predictability."
