FCC asks PUCs to help it reduce fraud in Lifeline program

Summary
The FCC has sought the help of state Public Utility Commissioners (PUC) to weed out what it says is waste, fraud and abuse in its Lifeline program, which is focused on providing traditional wireline and wireless voice services to lower income families. Genachowski In an enforcement advisory given to state PUCs last week, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski wrote that the agency heard that a number of service providers were either not confirming to eligibility for the program or not providing adequate service. Although the regulator will look into those issues itself, the chairman wants states to be more proactive about weeding out program abuse.  "I encourage all of you to join the FCC in our efforts to reform the Lifeline program by closely scrutinizing the requests for ETC designation pending before you, to be on guard for abuse by ETCs designated to provide Lifeline service in your states, and to take swift and strong action when necessary to protect the program," wrote FCC chairman Julius Genachowski in a letter to the state PUCs. Following an initial discussion last March, Genachowski wrote in the letter that the agency plans to vote "soon" on its own plan to reform and modernize the Lifeline program. Besides weeding out abusive tactics, the reform will include pilot programs that examine the role of broadband. The timing of incorporating broadband in the Lifeline program coincides with the agency's decision to migrate the Universal Service Fund (USF) from funding voice service to broadband.

Infonetics: Wireline broadband access equipment sales to reach peak in 2011

Summary
As more service providers expanded their respective VDSL and GPON-based networks this year, it drove strong spending in wireline broadband access network equipment. Strong PON spending by China's major service providers in addition to DSL growth in Central and Latin America and VDSL and GPON growth in EMEA created what Jeff Heynen, directing analyst for broadband access and video at Infonetics Research, said was "a perfect storm of spending this year." While this uptick in spending certainly a nice near term boost for the vendor community, Heynen is quick to point out in its Q3 2011 PON, FTTH, and DSL Aggregation Equipment and Subscribers market share and forecast report that "with peaks come valleys." By 2015, Infonetics forecast that the broadband aggregation market will decline to $5.0 billion, from $7.9 billion in 2011. On the vendor side, Huawei and ZTE hang onto their broadband aggregation equipment lead. However, Huawei's revenue slipped while ZTE's rose. Taking the third and fourth spots were Alcatel-Lucent and ADTRAN (Nasdaq: ADTN) with strong North America DSL sales. From a broadband technology perspective, global spending on DSL equipment declined nine percent due to a slowdown in some major projects and the fact that the seasonal Q3 slowness. Alternatively, EPON optical line terminal (OLT) revenue in Japan was up 16 percent in Q3 2011 with incumbent telcos NTT and KDDI expanding their respective Fiber to the Home (FTTH) network spending to convert FTTB+VDSL subscribers to FTTH.

Integra Telecom appoints Kevin O'Hara as new CEO

Summary
Integra Telecom did not have to look too far to find its new CEO as it has appointed former co-founder of Level 3 (Nasdaq: LVLT) and company board member Kevin O'Hara as its new CEO. O'Hara takes over the reins from Tom Casey, who previously left Integra only after only seven months on the job to become the CEO of pigment manufacturer Tronox, where he served as that company's board chairman. Since 2009, O'Hara has served as a member of Integra's board of directors with stints as director, chairman and most recently as executive chairman. He will retain his board director title in addition serving as the service provider's CEO. Jim Huesgen, who joined Integra in 2000 and has served as president since 2002, will remain as Integra's president and will report directly to O'Hara. Like many CLECs that serve business customers, Integra was not immune to the challenges of the recent recession. Last year, sales declined 3.6 percent to $616 million. The appointment of O'Hara, an advocate of the fiber-based services that Integra has been building out in recent years to appeal to larger business and wholesale carriers customers, including wireless operators, will provide some level of consistency.
