Embarq Retreats From Forbearance Quest

Embarq Corp. (EQ) has withdrawn its forbearance petition that sought to make IP voice traffic subject to intercarrier compensation rules.

Embarq didn’t immediately say why it withdrew the filing; chances are, the company faced denial of its petition given the new Democratic majority.

The three remaining commissioners in January rejected a FeatureGroup IP petition that wanted the opposite of Embarq’s: to be exempt from intercarrier compensation.
