Divisions are proud to make the December 1997 edition of the
Common Carrier Scorecard Report available to the public via the

The Scorecard includes an overview of how telephone companies performed individually and as a group, and highlights the types of telephone-related consumer complaints and inquiries processed by the FCC during the most recent reporting period.
