FCC Announces Launch of API for Lifeline National Verifier
The FCC announced it has launched an electronic interface that participating carriers can use when verifying a potential subscriber’s eligibility for the program. The application programming interface (API) connects carriers’ systems to the Lifeline program’s National Eligibility Verifier. The API will enable carriers to send applicant information directly to the National Verifier for an eligibility check, thereby reducing the paperwork required from potential subscribers.

Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture,
The Federal Communications Commission announced a $29,600,000 proposed fine against four related IXCs that the FCC says apparently perpetrated “an array of fraudulent, deceptive and manipulative practices that targeted consumers with Hispanic surnames.” The FCC is accusing the companies of violating multiple statutory provisions and FCC rules involving slamming, cramming, misrepresentation, and deceptive marketing.
