How does this change impact me? My business?

  • Customers requiring phone lines after 2/2/20 may not be able to purchase them at the same prices. The ILECs (Incumbent Local Exchange Carriers) are no longer required to offer these services at the same costs.
  • Essentially after 2/2/20, ILECs are no longer required to offer these services at a discount to competitive local providers, like BullsEye. Therefore, costs may increase on new lines.
  • For existing services, those services may not be available after 8/2/22 or may be priced at higher retail/tariff rates. The order requires that these lines be available until 8/2/22, but we recommend you plan now for this change. It will be here before you know it!
