JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - The Public Service Commission (PSC) has revoked the certificates of 17 telecommunications companies to do business in Mississippi.
This is due to their failure to provide the PSC with an annual report detailing their business activities in the state according to Northern District Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley, who made the announcement Tuesday.
Presley said the businesses were also out of compliance with the Secretary of State's office.
"We will not allow these companies to just flaunt the law," Presley said. "If you fail to respond to us, we cannot believe you are responsive to your consumers."
Consumers who are receiving telecommunications services from any of the 17 companies should immediately notify Presley's office toll-free at 1(800)-356-6428 or 1(800)-637-7722.
