CPUC Rejects AT&T’s Request to Withdraw as Carrier of Last Resort; Opens New Rulemaking Process

Currently, AT&T is the designated COLR in many parts of the state and is the largest COLR in California. Where AT&T is the default telephone service provider means that the company must provide telephone service over any technology, such as copper, fiber, cable, VoIP, or wireless, to any potential customer in that service territory. AT&T proposed to withdraw as the COLR without a new carrier being designated as a COLR.

Following review of AT&T’s request, which received over 5,000 public comments and for which the CPUC held eight Public Forums drawing more than 5,800 attendees, the CPUC today denied AT&T’s request.

Mono County Childcare Quality Scores Continue to Climb

MONO COUNTY, CA (June 19, 2024) – Each year, First 5 Mono County (First 5 Mono) and the Mono County Office of Education work with childcare and education sites within Mono and Alpine Counties to support childcare quality through the Childcare Quality System (System). This System is a comprehensive approach to assess, improve, and communicate the level of quality in early care and education programs. Participating State Preschool sites can earn ratings (1-5). State funders no longer fund ratings for other sites, but since ratings are valid for 5 years, some other sites’ ratings remain valid.
