On behalf of a group of wireless carriers, LLGS argued that there is strong support in the record for adopting a best practices regime, as the carriers advocated in their comments. Commenters agreed that the FCC should coordinate with other Federal agencies with national security expertise in developing best practices that carriers could use to protect their networks from national security risks. LLGS also pointed to concerns in the record that the FCC’s proposed rule barring universal service support to carriers using targeted suppliers’ equipment would impose enormous costs on small rural carriers, putting their businesses at risk and hindering their ability to serve consumers.
