AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Notice; termination of proceeding.

SUMMARY:

This document provides notice of the termination of a proceeding seeking reconsideration of a 1995 Commission order granting NYNEX a waiver of certain parts of the access charge rules. NYNEX (now Verizon) no longer charges the specific access charges at issue in this proceeding, therefore the substantive issues in this proceeding are moot.

DATES:

This proceeding will be terminated effective December 5, 2003, unless the Wireline Competition Bureau receives an opposition to the termination prior to that date.

ADDRESSES:

Oppositions to the proceeding termination should be mailed to the Commission's Secretary through the Commission's contractor, Natek, Inc., at 236 Massachusetts Avenue, NE., Suite 110, Washington, DC 20002.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On May 4, 1995, the Commission released an order in the above-referenced proceeding granting NYNEX a waiver to deaverage the transport interconnection charge (TIC) and recover the carrier common line (CCL) charge on a per-line, rather than a per-minute, basis. AT&T and Teleport filed petitions for reconsideration of this order on June 5, 1995. On October 16, 2003, AT&T filed a request to withdraw both its reconsideration petition and that of Teleport, which is now owned by AT&T. Based on its request to withdraw, AT&T's reconsideration petitions are dismissed without prejudice. 47 CFR 1.748. It appears that there are no pending petitions for reconsideration or applications for review in this proceeding. At this time, Verizon (formerly NYNEX) no longer charges the TIC or the CCL charge at issue in the proceeding, thus the substantive issues in this proceeding are moot. Therefore, the proceeding will be terminated effective December 5, 2003, unless the Wireline Competition Bureau receives an opposition to the termination before that date.
