    LNGS FILES COMMENTS WITH OMB TO SCALE BACK FCC DATA COLLECTION REQUIREMENTS

    On behalf of 11 small wireless carriers, LNGS filed Comments with the Office of Management and Budget, urging that agency to require the FCC to scale back the vast scope of the mandatory data collections requirements for purchasers of special access.  Special access includes the facilities connecting cell sites to a carrier’s central switch.  The Comments urge the FCC to exempt from the new requirements any carrier that purchases less than $5 million annually in special access facilities.  In the alternative, the Comments propose that the FCC only require data for calendar year 2013, and eliminate the requirement to file data for calendar year 2010.
