Order
In the Matter of the Investigation and Adoption of Rules to Govern Payphone Service Within the State of Delaware
January 29, 2002
Order No. 5868
PSC Regulation Docket No. 12
Approximately 28 Pages

In this order, the Commission proposes several revisions and amendments to its 1997 "Regulations Governing Payphone Service Providers in Delaware." The proposed changes focus on two areas. First, the oral disclosure of the price for obtaining directory assistance (DA). Second, oral price quotation for non-coin intrastate calls made utilizing the assistance of an operator service provider (OSP).

In PSC Order No. 5444 (May 23, 2000), the Commission granted Verizon-Delaware a waiver from the requirement that payphone service providers (PSPs) post, on or near the payphone, the charge for obtaining DA from the PSP. In that Order, the Commission granted Verizon the option to provide such DA price information orally to the payphone consumer as part of the call made to obtain DA. By now revising sections 4(f)(9) and 6(b) of the new Regulations, the Commission proposes to extend this option to all PSPs.

The proposed new section 6(c) imposes on OSPs the same "branding" and real time disclosure obligation in their handling of intra-Delaware calls as currently apply to interstate calls made from payphones located in Delaware. Similarly, the new section 7 imposes the same restrictions on OSP practices in conjunction with intrastate calls that now govern OSPs in their interstate call activities. Finally, the proposed revisions to the newly renumbered section 9 allow the Commission to take the same remedial actions against OSPs for their intrastate transgressions as are now authorized in the case of violations by payphone service providers.

Order
In the Matter of the Development of Regulations for the Facilitation of Competitive Entry into the Telecommunications Local Exchange Service Market
Order No. 5391
PSC Regulation Docket No. 45
Issued: March 28, 2000
Approximately 98 Pages

In this Order, the Delaware Commission proposes to amend its rules and regulations by repealing, in their entirety, the existing "Interim Rules Governing Competition in the Market for Local Telecommunications Services" and the "Rules for the Provision of Competitive Intrastate Telecommunications Services."
In their place the Commission proposes adopting a new set of "Rules for the Provision of Telecommunications Service."
Significant changes proposed in these rules include
* allowing carriers to file price lists in place of tariffs,
* eliminating the requirement that tariffs (or price lists) be accompanied by cost studies,
* allowing changes to existing rates to be implemented upon three days notice, rather than the current fourteen or five days notice,
* adding a new rule to govern customer election of preferred carriers consistent with the Federal Communications Commission's preferred carrier election rules,
* and adding a new rule governing enforcement of the Rules.
Although these changes are in the development stage, they constitute a clear depature from the way in which the market for local telephone service is currently organized and administered.
