Order Adopting Rules Regarding the Implementation of Telecommunications Service Quality Standards
In The Matter Of The Proposed Adoption Of New Rules By The Public Service Commission of Wyoming Relating to the Implementation Of Telecommunications Service Quality Standards
General Order 73
Record No. 3782
Issued: February 3, 2000
Approximately 2 Pages

On November 20, 1995, the Commission issued its Notice of Intent to Adopt New Rules and Regulations and Procedural Order Setting Public Hearing and its Draft Statement of Reasons for Adoption of New Rules and Regulations which set forth the Commission's intention to promulgate new rules relating to quality of service standards of the Wyoming Telecommunications Act of 1995.
The Commission followed with four Notices of Intent to Adopt New Rules and Regulations over the next 4 years.

The new standards contained in this order set guidelines for trouble report response, network call completion, adequacy of service, and availability of service, among others.
For example, section 510 of the rules, entitled Interoffice Trunking, establishes a minimum engineering design standard of B.01 (P.01) for local and extended area service and a minimum engineering design standard of B.005 (P.005) for toll and tandem facilities, and establishes criteria for Jurisdictional Digital Services. In addition, it establishes Bit Error Ratio standards which require a ratio of 10-6 on at least ninety-eight (98) percent of the connections for end-to-end connections through the network. The primary reason for this rule is to provide target standards for interoffice trunking and toll facilities since interoffice trunking is a necessary component of telecommunications service quality.

For each of the provisions contained in the order, the Commission concludes that it has the authority to promulgate existing rules and ensure service quality and that the revisions contained in the order are consistent with existing statutes and the public interest.
