[ NNSquad ] FCC Protects VoIP for Inmates

FCC Protects VoIP for Inmates

http://j.mp/GMje78  (Wjlta)

   "At a time when American incarceration rates are higher than they've
    ever been, one federal agency just delivered a huge victory for the
    ever-increasing U.S. prison population. The Federal Communications
    Commission (FCC) recently passed a rule preventing inmate calling
    services (ICS) from blocking calls from prison that are routed through
    VoIP services, such as ConsCallHome (CCH), to make cheaper phone calls
    to their families and other loved ones. The order [LINK REDACTED DUE
    TO GOVT SHUT DOWN], passed Sept. 26, comes on the heels of another
    recent order [LINK] that established a "safe harbor" cap on rates
    charged by ICS companies."
