SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On October 27, 2004 Global Crossing filed a petition for declaratory ruling with the Commission seeking clarification of the meaning and application of two provisions of the Southwestern Bell Telephone, L.P. interstate access tariff. On November 12, 2004, SBC filed a petition for declaratory ruling with the Commission seeking affirmation that its tariff permits it to use the telephone numbers of the calling and called parties to determine whether to bill long distance carriers interstate or intrastate terminating switched access rates for wireless originated long distance calls when there is no accurate or reliable information included in the call detail. The Commission subsequently sought comment on the petitions. On April 20, 2006, Global Crossing filed a letter withdrawing its petition. AT&T, Inc. filed a letter withdrawing its petition on April 21, 2006. The Global Crossing and SBC petitions are dismissed without prejudice. This proceeding will be terminated effective 30 days after publication of this Public Notice in the Federal Register, unless the Wireline Competition Bureau receives an opposition to the termination before that date.
