In March 2000, the FCC adopted a semi-annual reporting requirement (FCC Form 477) to determine the extent of local telecommunications competition and deployment of broadband services. Reporting was previously done on a ZIP code basis, but changes made June 15, 2008 FCC now require broadband carriers to provide the agency with more detailed information. Under the new regulations, information will be collected and reported by Census Tract. In addition, FCC now requires carriers to report their broadband coverage by up and download speed based on tiers. First reports are due March 1, 2009 and are updated and re-submitted every 6 months thereafter.
Carriers who willfully fail to report can be subject to a fine of not more than $500 for every day during which the offense occurs.

The folks at RATA were outstanding. Every time I had a question, I would speak to someone who either knew the answer immediately or could provide the answer within a very short period of time. Everyone I spoke with knew their product, industry and was willing to do whatever it took to help us solve our problem. I would highly recommend RATA and COMPLY to anyone who is considering this company and product.
