The FCC released today its officially designated inflation adjustment factor for the first quarter of 2005, for use by rate regulated cable operators choosing to file rate adjustments on FCC Form 1240. The specialized inflation adjustment figure is 2.89% for the quarterly 1240 filing, representing an annualized inflation rate for the first calendar quarter of 2005 as measured by the FCC’s chosen inflation index.

The Commission’s Public Notice specifies where the new figure should be entered on Form 1240 and also summarizes the previously published inflation figures for earlier quarters.
