Wireless Industry Groups Oppose 'Bill Shock' Legislation
Jan 12, 2011, 2:51 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Several wireless industry trade organizations, including the CTIA, Rural Cellular Association (RCA) and Rural Telecommunications Group (RTG) have filed comments with the Federal Communications Commission in opposition of proposed Bill Shock legislation. First published in October 2010, the FCC wants wireless network operators to implement a number of measures to help customers avoid overage charges for exceeding monthly limits. The CTIA, RCA and RTG argue that such measures are unnecessary because many operators already have such tools in place and because it would create an undue financial burden for smaller operators. The CTIA also argues that the FCC doesn't have the authority to spearhead such legislation. The comment period for the proposed legislation is almost over. The proposal has several hurdles to clear before reaching "law" status.
