Who needs 251(g) and 254(g), anyway?

On Thursday April 27, 2006, Core Communications, Inc. filed a petition with the FCC seeking forbearance from rate regulation under section 251(g) (ILEC access charge preservation) and 254(g) (IXC rate averaging and integration). Grant of Core's petition would place all FCC-regulated traffic under section 251(b)(5) for rate regulation purposes. It would also eliminate implicit subsidies to rural LECs by enabling interexchange carriers to recover access charges from their end users, which is now prohibited by the Commission's rate averaging and integration rules. Click here for a copy of Core's petition.

For all you intercarrier compensation aficionados, April 27 was the fifth anniversary of the FCC's ISP Remand Order.
