    FCC Should Reject TracFone’s Lifeline Petition

    On June 17, 2013, LNGS partner David LaFuria and attorney Steven Chernoff, on behalf of Smith Bagley, Inc., filed Comments [PDF] setting forth why the FCC should reject TracFone’s proposal to prohibit in-person distribution of handsets to prospective Lifeline customers.

    TracFone’s proposal would prohibit the very types of consumer outreach activities that have helped bring critical telecommunications service to unserved and underserved populations on Tribal lands.
