1999

Order Directing Rate Reductions
Public Service Commission approves a Performance Assurance Plan for Bell Atlantic
Case Nos. 95-C-0657, 94-C-0095, 91-C-1174
Issued: October 21, 1999
Approximately 13 Pages

The New York State Public Service Commission recently approved a Performance Assurance Plan (PAP) that requires Bell Atlantic-NY (BA-NY) to credit its competitors in the local telephone market as much as $269 million annually if the company's wholesale service fails to meet certain performance standards.

BA-NY's service quality will be measured against 122 wholesale standards that are grouped into four categories: mode of entry, critical measures, change control, and special provisions. Based on the measurements contained in the preceding categories, BA-NY is subject to annual market revenue adjustments totaling $269 million.

The plan is deisgned to ensure that BA-NY maintains high levels of wholesale service to competitors even after the company obtains approval to provide long distance service in New York state and will take effect when they enter that market.

Commission Chairman Maureen Helmer stated, "The Performance Assurance Plan holds BA-NY to standards that collectively require it to acheive service quality that exceeds the checklist requirements of the Telecommunications Act of 1996."

Opinion and Order Concerning Reciprocal Compensation
Proceeding on Motion of the Commission to Reexamine Reciprocal Compensation
Opinion No. 99-10
Case No. 99-C-0529
Issued and Effective: August 26, 1999< br>Approximately 74 Pages

By order issued April 15, 1999, the Commission instituted this proceeding "to reexamine reciprocal compensation, particularly costs and rate structures applicable to large-volume call termination to single customers."

"Reciprocal compensation" refers to an arrangement between two local exchange carriers in which each carrier compensates the other for the transport and termination on the second carrier's network facilities of calls originating on the first carrier's facilities. The present inquiry grows out of an unanticipated development: a substantial imbalance in traffic flows (and, in consequence, revenue streams) between incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs) and some competing local exchange carriers (CLECs) having a preponderance of customers, such as Internet service providers (ISPs), that receive far more calls than they make.

Case No. 98-C-0690
Issued and Effective: August 10, 1999

Order Approving Tariff Filing on a Permanent Basis And Requesting Comments
In the matter of the Ordinary Tariff Filing of New York Telephone Company to Provide for the Introduction of Cageless Collocation Open Environment (CCOE); rates and regulations for Adjacent Structures; and, clarifications and modifications to existing collocation offerings.
Case No. 99-C-0715
Issued and Effective: June 28, 1999
Approximately 13 Pages

On March 31, 1999, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released its First Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, CC Docket No. 98-147.The FCC Order established additional measures for obtaining interconnection and access to Unbundled Network Elements and set standards for Physical and Virtual collocation.

BA-NY's tariff filing comports with this Order in some respects and may be deficient in others. Some of those concerns have been clarified or have been resolved through additional tariff revisions which the company filed requesting that they be permitted to become effective on short notice. The revised filing offers CLECs collocation opportunities that are not now available and should make collocation easier to obtain, especially in those offices where physical collocation is not available due to space constraints. In order to not delay any benefit CLECs may derive from this filing, we will approve the tariff filing on a permanent basis effective June 29, 1999.

Issued: February 22, 1999
Approximately 98 Pages

In May 1997, the New York Public Service Commission invited comment on the issues that remained to be considered, either initially or further, in an ensuing phase (Phase 3) of this on-going proceeding related to the prices charged by New York Telephone Company d/b/a Bell Atlantic-New York (New York Telephone) for telephone services sold for resale and for unbundled network elements. In August 1997, after considering the parties' comments, they determined that Phase 3 should consider further deaveraging of rates for unbundled loops; rates for all network elements and services offered for resale that were referred to in New York Telephone's filings in Case 97-C-0271 and had not already been addressed in these proceedings; and terms and conditions, as well as costing and pricing, of collocation. That order provided for non-price terms and conditions of collocation to be considered through written comments; they have already reached decisions on those issues, some of which are pertinent here.
