Will this impact my ability to order additional services in the future? What should I expect?

  • It is expected that Resale services will continue to be available after 2-2-20 but at a higher cost basis since there will be a loss of the mandated discount. However, it is also expected that the ILECs will remove the current resale mandated discounts on the base (ordered prior to 2-2-20) on 8-2-22 as part of a 3-year transition plan.
  • It is also expected that prior to the 8-2-22 deadline that all resale and lines/services need to be transitioned to alternative arrangements if services are no longer available through the ILEC. The language in the FCC order assumes that carriers will migrate customers served via resale to another service alternative once the costs to serve via resale increase.
