The Michigan Public Service Commission issued the fourth annual report on the operation and administration of the Michigan Intrastate Switched Toll Access Restructuring Mechanism (ARM). Section 310 of the Michigan Telecommunications Act (MTA), requires the PSC to submit an annual report describing the operation and administration of the ARM. The ARM is a 12-year transition fund through which eligible providers1 can recover a portion of the lost revenues associated with reduced intrastate access rates. (see below) The ARM is supported by monthly contributions from all providers of retail intrastate telecommunications services in Michigan, including mobile wireless voice providers. (VoIP service revenues are exempt from the ARM contribution calculation.) TMI Regulatory Bulletin Service subscribers see Bulletin dated 9/30/14 for further details on the ARM.
