The FCC is seeking comment on a petition filed by the National Lifeline Association (NaLA), requesting waiver of the scheduled December 1, 2020 increase in the Lifeline mobile broadband minimum service standard (MSS) and decrease in the Lifeline support amount for voice service.  Specifically, NaLA requests that the FCC retain the mobile broadband MSS at 3 GB rather than increasing it to 11.75 GB as planned, and retain Lifeline voice support at $7.25 rather than decreasing it to $5.25 as planned.  Inteserra Briefing Service subscribers see Briefing dated 8/6/20It states that such actions will ensure that Lifeline mobile broadband and voice services do not become less affordable and accessible for the growing number of low-income Americans that need access to affordable communications services more now than ever because of the ongoing COVID-19 health and economic crisis. Comments are due September 14, 2020; reply comments are due September 21, 2020.
