ROOM 2322 RAYBURN HOUSE OFFICE BUILDING
In this era of new competition, new technologies, and increasing convergence in the communications marketplace, is the time finally ripe for reform of the Universal Service subsidy system? With the Universal Service Fund surcharge added to customers' bills now over 11%, many believe the subsidy system must be substantially overhauled, and without further delay. A distinguished panel of experts will discuss what should be done on a short and long-term basis to reform the system.
