"It has been clear for years that the FCC's pricing flexibility rules did not accurately measure the extent to which incumbent local exchange companies control the critical last mile facilities that connect communication carriers to business locations across the nation.  By suspending the flawed triggers that were based on incorrect predictive judgment,  prematurely allowing the incumbent local exchange companies to obtain pricing flexibility, the FCC has prevented future rate increases in markets where the incumbents have market power.  Competition is key to innovation and the expansion of broadband services.  We applaud the FCC for taking this important action to modernize the rules that apply to the Special Access marketplace."
