Vote Sheet
Investigation into Pricing of Unbundled Network Elements (BellSouth Track)
990649A-TP
September 6, 2002

On May 25, 2001, the Commission issued its Final Order on Rates for Unbundled Network Elements Provided by BellSouth, referred to as Order 1. In compliance with that order, BellSouth submitted a filing including a "bottoms-up" loop cost study; changes to its Daily Usage Files (DUF) rates; a cost study for a new loop type (Unbundled Copper Loop-Nondesigned [UCL-ND]); revisions to its cost studies for network interface devices (NIDs); and a cost study for hybrid copper/fiber xDSL-capable loops.

In its September 6, 2002 vote, the Commission ruled that the adjusted loop rate cost study submitted in BellSouth's filing complies with Order 1. On the issue of DUF cost studies, the Commission ruled that BellSouth should be allowed to recover the cost of providing DUF services through specified rates. It adopted the DUF cost studies with two adjustments. The UCL-ND cost study submitted by BellSouth was found to be in compliance with the Commission's directives in Order 1. The Commission ruled that the stand-alone NID rates be adjusted to include exempt materials.

As defined by the Commission, a "hybrid copper/fiber xDSL-capable loop" is a configuration that allows an ALEC to provide xDSL services to its customers that are served off of a BellSouth digital loop carrier remote terminal. The Commission ruled that such a configuration is technically feasible for BellSouth to provide. The Commission ruled that BellSouth not be required to unbundle either DSLAMs located in remote terminals, or packet switches located in its central offices.

Loop and DUF rates as well as rates for UCL-ND and NID elements can be found in Appendix A of Memo 1.

Petition of ACI Corp. d/b/a Accelerated Connections, Inc. for Generic Investigation to Ensure that BellSouth Telecommunications, Inc., Sprint-Florida, Incorporated, and GTE Florida Incorporated Comply with Obligation to Provide Alternative Local Exchange Carriers with Flexible, Timely, and Cost-Efficient Physical Collocation
Order No. PSC-99-1744-PAA-TP
Docket No. 990321-TP
Issued and Effective: September 7, 1999
Approximately 41 Pages

In support of its Petition, ACI states that it is very important to ensure that the ILECs provide physical collocation to all ALECs in order for the ALECs to be able to provide service to their Florida customers. ACI explains that space is scarce in certain ILEC central offices, and that it is very important to adopt procedures to deal with future waiver petitions in a fair and timely manner. To the extent that ACI's Petition seeks a generic investigation of collocation issues, ACI's Petition is, hereby, granted. A generic proceeding will identify better, more efficient ways of addressing collocation issues and of handling collocation disputes. We shall not, however, proceed to rulemaking as suggested in ACI's petition, nor shall we adopt the specific rules and procedures set forth in ACI's petition. In view of the strict Administrative Procedures Act requirements for rulemaking, a rulemaking proceeding is not feasible at this time.

Based on the foregoing, it is therefore ORDERED that in the event this Order becomes final, these Dockets shall remain open pending the outcome of the generic investigation into collocation issues.

Approximately 47 Pages

On January 23, 1998, Supra Telecommunications and Information Systems (Supra) filed a Complaint against BellSouth Telecommunications, Inc. (BellSouth) for alleged violations of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 (Act) and Petition for resolution of certain disputes between BellSouth and Supra regarding interpretation of the Interconnection, Resale, and Collocation Agreements between Supra and BellSouth (Petition). On February 16, 1998, BellSouth filed its Answer and Response to Supra’s Petition. On April 30, 1998, the Florida Public Service Commissionheld a hearing to receive testimony and evidence regarding Supra’s complaint. Our determination on this matter is set forth herein.

The Commissions determination is structured in the following manner. In Section II, they address whether or not BellSouth has failed to properly implement certain provisions of its Interconnection, Collocation and Resale agreements with Supra so that Supra is unable to provide local exchange service on parity with that which BellSouth provides to its own retail customers. Section III is their determination on whether or not BellSouth has provided Supra adequate written information and support for Supra to provide local exchange service on parity with BellSouth. In Section IV of this Order, they address whether BellSouth has acted appropriately in its billing of Supra and whether Supra timely paid its bills to BellSouth. Section V is their discussion of the application of portions of BellSouth’s General Subscriber Services Tariff to Supra, and Section VI addresses whether or not BellSouth has responded appropriately to consumer queries regarding Supra. In Section VII, they discuss the appropriate relief in this matter. In Section VIII, the Commission concludes their determination. (Approximately 16,200 words or 49 pages)

Approximately 8 Pages

Each price regulated and rate base/rate-of-return regulated LEC whose current intrastate switched access rates are higher than its 1994 interstate switched access rates, must reduce its intrastate switched access rates.

Interexchange carriers that pay intrastate switched access charges to the LECs are required to reduce customer long distance rates. Each IXC that is required to reduce customer long distance rates shall file its calculation of the realized dollar benefit associated with the LECs' intrastate switched access rate.
