Here's a comment supplied by CenturyLink, when they saw that Light Reading had posted the FCC's press release (above):

"Consumers traditionally have valued the convenience of receiving a combined bill for all their communications services. That is why CenturyLink offered combined billing services for a limited number of third-party communications providers. Our policy is to discontinue, block and refund unauthorized third-party charges at a customer's request.

"However, the FCC received some complaints about some smaller third-party providers imposing unauthorized charges on CenturyLink bills. In response, CenturyLink agreed to discontinue its billing service for most third-party providers and make a settlement payment to the FCC.

"This change will be phased in after appropriate notice to the few providers affected. CenturyLink's billing arrangements with its large strategic partners are not affected."
