Order Rejecting Tariffs
In the Matter of KLM Telephone Company's Revised Intrastate Access Tariff Filing
Case No. TT-2000-193
Tariff File No. 200000128
Issued: September 9, 1999
Effective: September 16, 1999
Approximately 3 Pages

On August 16, 1999, KLM Telephone Company (KLM) filed revised tariff sheets to revise its intrastate access rates. The tariff filing proposed a mechanism to achieve revenue neutrality. Southwestern Bell Telephone (SWBT) states that the proposed mechanism conflicts with both the Commission's Report and Order in TO-99-254 et al. and with the revenue neutrality calculations KLM filed in that case.

On September 2, KLM filed a response to SWBT's comments. KLM continues to labor under the misconception that the Commission's Report and Order in KLM's intraLATA dialing parity plan case (Case No. TO-99-511) permitted a different kind of revenue neutrality mechanism than that authorized in the Report and Order in Case No. TO-99-254. The Commission has attempted to address KLM's misunderstanding in several orders concerning clarification and rehearing. It will suffice here to simply state that the revenue neutrality mechanism that KLM proposes does not comport with the Reports and Orders in either Case No. TO-99-254 or Case No. TO-99-511. IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED: 1. That the tariff filed by KLM Telephone Company on August 16, 1999, is rejected. 2. That this order shall become effective on September 16, 1999.

Case No. TO-98-115
Date Issued: December 23, 1997 Effective Date: January 2, 1998
Approximately 58 Pages

Southwestern Bell Telephone Company (SWBT) and AT&T  Communications of the Southwest, Inc. (AT&T) have been negotiating since March 14, 1996, to develop the terms for AT&T’s interconnection with SWBT’s facilities. The parties’ initial round of negotiations culminated in AT&T’s first petition for arbitration, filed with the Commission on July 29, 1996, in Case No. TO-97-40.

The Commission issued its Arbitration Order in Case No. TO-97-40 on December 11, 1996, in which it resolved the issues presented by the parties and established interim rates for the resale of SWBT's services and for the sale of SWBT's unbundled network elements (UNEs) to AT&T. This order was modified on January 22, 1997. The Commission's July 31 Final Arbitration Order set permanent rates. This order was modified in several respects on October 2, when the Commission ordered SWBT and AT&T (the parties) to file an interconnection agreement incorporating the findings made by the Commission. The parties filed an agreement and, on November 5, the Commission issued an order approving the proposed interconnection agreement.

Report and Order
In the Matter of the Request for Suspension and Modification of Federal Communications Commission Rules Regarding IntraLATA Dialing Parity.
Case No. TO-97-220
Issued: May 22, 1997, Effective: June 3, 1997
Approximately 14 Pages

Three aspects of intraLATA service as it exists in Missouri are particularly relevant to this determination: the PTC (Primary Toll Carrier) Plan, COS (Community Optional Service) service, and 911 emergency service. All the witnesses testified that maintenance of the PTC Plan is inconsistent with the implementation of intraLATA dialing parity. The PTC Plan requires SCs (secondary carriers) such as the petitioners to route all intraLATA toll traffic to the PTC (primary toll carrier). When intraLATA dialing parity is implemented, the fact that some customers are presubscribed to an interexchange carrier other than the PTC would mean that the SC would be required by state and federal law to violate the Plan's requirement that all toll traffic be routed to the PTC.

Missouri LECs are required by the Commission to provide COS service to qualifying exchanges. COS service, where a subscriber in a petitioning exchange pays a flat rate for toll-free service to and from one or more target exchanges, is also dependent on the PTC Plan. In order to initiate a COS route, the companies involved must provide the Commission with calling study data to demonstrate that the volume of calls to the target exchange and the percentage of customers making those calls satisfy the COS criteria. Under the Primary Toll Carrier Plan, PTCs and SCs share the information necessary for properly tracking and billing COS subscriber calls, a process that would be complicated if dialing parity were implemented. All the parties recommended that implementation of dialing parity be delayed for the petitioners until the Commission resolves all COS issues and establishes an implementation schedule, or until April 1, 1998, whichever is sooner.

Order Conditionally Approving Interconnection Agreement and Rejecting Resale Appendix

Case No. TO-97-334

The Agreement provides for a $25.00 intercompany conversion charge when a customer switches from SWBT to Brooks, and for an informal dispute resolution process for issues that arise between the signatories.
