COMPETITION DATA REQUESTED IN SPECIAL ACCESS NPRM

WC Docket No. 05-25, RM-10593

In this Public Notice, we invite voluntary submissions of data to assist the Commission in
evaluating the various issues that have been raised in the Special Access NPRM.1 In that NPRM, the
Commission explained that an examination of the current state of competition for special access services
is critical to determine whether the Commission's pricing flexibility rules are working as intended.2 In
addition, the Commission sought comment on appropriate measures to ensure that price cap rates for
special access services remain just and reasonable after expiration of the CALLS plan.3 Subsequently, the
Commission sought updated information on these issues, and the parties continue to provide their views
to Commission staff.4
On November 5, 2009, the Commission released a Public Notice inviting comment on the
appropriate analytical framework for determining whether the current rules are working.5 The National
Broadband Plan recommended that this framework ensure that rates, terms and conditions for special
access are just and reasonable, given the significant role special access circuits play in the availability and
pricing of fixed and mobile broadband services.6 Determining what data are available is a key factor in
developing an appropriate framework. Moreover, there are certain data that would need to be reviewed
regardless of which analytical framework is ultimately adopted. Accordingly, on October 28, 2010, the

Commission issued the Special Access Facilities Data Public Notice, which sought detailed data on
special access facilities.7 In this Public Notice, the Commission asks for voluntary submissions of pricing
and related competition data.8

Given that many of the questions in this Public Notice seek data that is
updated periodically to account for retroactive adjustments, we request that parties submit
calendar-year 2010 data for most questions to provide us with the most current, thorough, and
accurate snapshot of pricing and competition issues in this proceeding.

If any party submits data that contain confidential and proprietary information, it shall submit
such data in accordance with the Modified First Protective Order, the Second Protective Order, and
supplements to the Second Protective Order issued in this proceeding.9
The data collected under this Public Notice will not be made immediately available to the public,
in order to provide staff with sufficient time to perform an initial review for completeness and
responsiveness. Data from this and the Special Access Facilities Data Public Notice10 will be available
for inspection pursuant to applicable protective orders following this initial staff review. The
Commission will notify the public of when inspection of confidential and highly confidential data from
both Public Notices, pursuant to applicable protective orders, may begin.

The Commission requests that the public voluntarily submit the requested data in response

to this Public Notice on or before December 5, 2011. Responses to this data request may be filed on a
rolling basis.11

I. Definitions for this data request:

Changing Service Provider(s) or Change Service Providers means switching from your company's
current provider of DS1 and/or DS3 services ("current provider") to another provider, whether the new
provider is a facilities-based provider or leases facilities from your current provider.
Collocator refers to the term as used pursuant to 47 C.F.R. 69.701 et seq. of the Commission's rules, for
purposes of applying for a grant of Phase I or Phase II Pricing Flexibility from the Commission. Thus,
for purposes of this Public Notice, the definition of Collocator excludes competitive providers that
collocate in carrier hotels.
Contract-Based Tariff, for purposes of all questions except III.C.1 of this Public Notice, means an
interstate Tariff based on a service contract entered into between a customer and a price cap local

Data Public Notice
).
8 In this Public Notice, we seek facts or opinions submitted in response to our general solicitation of comments from
the public. No person is required to supply specific information pertaining to the commenter, other than that
necessary for self-identification, as a condition of our full consideration of the comment. Thus, this Public Notice
does not seek "information" as that term is used in the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. See 5 C.F.R.
1320.3(h)(4); see also Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Pub. L. No. 104-13, 109 Stat. 163.

above, as defined in 47 C.F.R. 61.3(rr).
Tariff Benefit Plan means an interstate Tariff plan for DS1 and/or DS3 services that does not offer a
discount from any One Month Term Only Rate, but offers non-rate benefits such as the ability to move
services without penalty.
Tariff Discount Plan means interstate Tariff discounts, other than a Term Discount, for DS1 and/or DS3
services from any One Month Term Only Rate, such as discounts for volume or revenue commitments
that may be based on a regional or nationwide basis.
Term Discount means Tariff discounts for DS1 and/or DS3 services from any One Month Term Only Rate
that provide customers with a circuit-specific discount in exchange for a term (but not volume)
commitment for a specific circuit.

Voluntary Information Request

A. All Providers. We request that members of the public that are providers of DS1, DS3 and PSDS
services respond to the following questions:

1. Terms and conditions. Describe any logistical constraints on a customer's ability to make the
transition from DS1s and DS3s: (a) to unregulated access services offered by your company; and (b) to
unregulated access services offered by a competitor. Are there any constraints on how many circuits can
be switched per day, per week, per month? Within what geographic region are those constraints
applicable? Also state where your upgrade constraint policies are recorded, and how they are
communicated to customers.
2. Terms and conditions. Explain what steps a customer must take to transition from regulated DS1
and/or DS3 services to unregulated PSDS provided by: (a) your company; and (b) a competitor, in order
to avoid early termination or other penalties. In your response, provide the relevant Tariff or Contract-
Based Tariff
and section numbers, if applicable.
3. Terms and conditions. In each LSA in which you have submitted a response to a request for proposal
(RFP) for DS1 and/or DS3 channel terminations to end users as defined by 47 C.F.R. 69.703(a)(2), but
were not selected as the vendor, please describe the reasons your firm was not selected, if known, and
whether those reasons were associated with terms and conditions for DS1 and/or DS3 services.

B. ILEC Providers. We request that members of the public that are incumbent local exchange
carrier (ILEC) providers of DS1, DS3, or PSDS services respond to the following questions:

1. ILEC Revenues. Please provide the information requested below on a national basis.
An optional template is available at http://www.fcc.gov/wcb/ppd/pn2template.xls for your response to
this question. Data elements and instructions for that template are identified in Table III.B.1 of
Attachment B.
a. Total intrastate and interstate Revenues generated by DS1 and DS3 services, separately for
DS1 and DS3 services;
b. Revenues generated from One Month Term Only Rates generated by DS1 and DS3 services,
separately for DS1 and DS3 services;
c. Revenues generated from rates charged under Term Discounts, separately for DS1 and DS3
services;
d. Revenues generated from rates charged under Tariff Benefit Plans for DS1 and DS3 services:
i. In total; and
ii. If data is available, separately for DS1s and DS3s;
e. Revenues generated from rates charged under Tariff Discount Plans for DS1 and DS3
services:
i. In total; and
ii. If data is available, separately for DS1s and DS3s;
f. Revenues generated from rates charged under Contract-Based Tariffs for DS1 and DS3
services:
i. In total; and
ii. If data is available, separately for DS1s and DS3s;
g. If the sum of the subcategories of Revenues reported above (in III.B.1.b III.B.1.f)), plus
Revenues generated by intrastate DS1 and DS3 services, do not add up to the total Revenues
reported in III.B.1.a, explain why;
h. Revenues generated from DS1 and/or DS3 rates charged under Tariff Discount Plans for Prior
Purchase-Based Discounts:
i. In total;
5

ii. If available, separately for DS1 and DS3 services; and
iii. Of the total (and for the separate DS1 and DS3 totals if available), Revenues
generated from sales made at a discount from the One Month Term Only Rate of:
a. Less than 10%;
b. Greater than or equal to 10%, but less than 20%;
c. Greater than or equal to 20%, but less than 30%;
d. Greater than or equal to 30%, but less than 40%;
e. Greater than or equal to 40%, but less than 50%; and
f. Greater than or equal to 50%.
For purposes of calculating the percentages described above (in III.B.1(h)), an example
would be a Tariff Discount Plan that requires a purchase of 20 DS1s and 10 DS3s and
generates Revenues of $2,000 for calendar-year 2010. If those same circuits were
purchased at One Month Term Only Rates of $100 per DS1 and $200 per DS3, then total
Revenues would instead be $4,000. Since the Tariff Discount Plan under this scenario
generated 50% of the Revenue that would be generated from One Month Term Only
Rates
, the discount would be greater than or equal to 50%.
i. Revenues generated from rates charged under Tariff Discount Plans for DS1 and/or DS3
services based on discounts other than Prior Purchase-Based Discounts:
i. In total;
ii. If available, separately for DS1 and DS3 services; and
iii. Of the total (and for the separate DS1 and DS3 totals if available), Revenues
generated from sales made at a discount from the One Month Term Only Rate of:
a. Less than 10%;
b. Greater than or equal to 10%, but less than 20%;
c. Greater than or equal to 20%, but less than 30%;
d. Greater than or equal to 30%, but less than 40%;
e. Greater than or equal to 40%, but less than 50%; and
f. Greater than or equal to 50%.
A general example of how to calculate these percentages can be found at Question
III.B.1.h.
j.
Revenues generated from DS1 and/or DS3 rates charged under Contract-Based Tariffs for
Prior Purchase-Based Discounts:
i. In total;
ii. If data is available, separately for DS1 and DS3 services; and

generated from sales made at a discount from the One Month Term Only Rate of:
a. Less than 10%;
b. Greater than or equal to 10%, but less than 20%;
c. Greater than or equal to 20%, but less than 30%;
d. Greater than or equal to 30%, but less than 40%;
e. Greater than or equal to 40%, but less than 50%; and
f. Greater than or equal to 50%.
A general example of how to calculate these percentages can be found at Question
III.B.1.h.
k. Revenues generated from DS1 and/or DS3 rates charged under Contract-Based Tariffs for
discounts other than Prior Purchase-Based Discounts:
6

i. In total;
ii. If data is available, separately for DS1 and DS3 services; and
iii. Of the total (and for the separate DS1 and DS3 totals if available), Revenues
generated from sales made at a discount from the One Month Only Rate of:
a. Less than 10%;
b. Greater than or equal to 10%, but less than 20%;
c. Greater than or equal to 20%, but less than 30%;
d. Greater than or equal to 30%, but less than 40%;
e. Greater than or equal to 40%, but less than 50%; and
f. Greater than or equal to 50%.

III.B.1.h.
l. Total Revenues generated from sales of PSDS:
i. In total; and
ii. For all PSDS, by the following bandwidth speed categories:
a. No more than 51.84 Mbps of delivered bandwidth (inclusive of signaling);
b. Greater than 51.84 Mbps and less than 1Gbps of delivered bandwidth
(inclusive of signaling); and
c. Greater than or equal to 1 Gbps of delivered bandwidth (inclusive of
signaling).
2. Data from Price Cap Tariff Review Plan (TRP). For each study area in which you operate, report the
data identified below from TRPs filed in support of rates that took effect on July 1, 2011. If the initial
TRP filed in support of the July 1, 2011 rates was revised, report data from the most recently revised TRP
filed in support of these rates. An optional template is available at

that were in effect on June 30, 2011;
f. Total amounts paid or refunded (or the equivalent) to your customers14 for DS1 and DS3
services listed in the TRP, whether or not those amounts were included in your company's
2011 TRP, because your network experienced an outage, or you engaged in poor service or

template are identified in Table III.D.3 of Attachment D.
a. Total interstate and intrastate;
b. At One Month Term Only Rates;
c. Under Term Discounts;
d. Under Tariff Discount Plans;
e. Under Tariff Benefit Plans;
f. Under Contract-Based Tariffs;
g. If the sum of the subcategories reported above (in III.D.3.b-III.D.3.f), plus intrastate DS1
and DS3 circuits, do not add up to the total DS1 and DS3 circuits reported in III.D.3.a, explain
why;
h. The number of DS1 and/or DS3 circuits purchased through Tariff Discount Plans at Prior
Purchase-Based Discounts:
i. In total;
ii. The totals, separately for DS1s and DS3s; and
iii. Of the total for DS1s and separately, of the total for DS3s, state the number of
circuits that were purchased at a discount from the One Month Term Only Rate of:
a. Less than 10%;
b. Greater than or equal to 10%, but less than 20%;
c. Greater than or equal to 20%, but less than 30%;
d. Greater than or equal to 30%, but less than 40%;
e. Greater than or equal to 40%, but less than 50%; and
14

f. Greater than or equal to 50%.
For purposes of determining the number of circuits that were purchased within one of the above-
listed discount categories, an example would be if a purchaser spent $2,000 on a Tariff Discount
Plan
that requires a purchase of 30 DS1s, based on the customer's prior year's buy, for calendar-
year 2010. If those same circuits were purchased at One Month Term Only Rates of $133 per
DS1, then total expenditures would be $3,990. Because the discount for those 30 circuits under
the Tariff Discount Plan was less than 50%, but more than 40%, of what would have been spent
under One Month Term Only Rates, then 30 circuits were purchased at a discount of greater than
or equal to 40%, but less than 50%.
h. The number of DS1 and/or DS3 circuits purchased through all Tariff Discount Plans other than
Prior Purchase-Based Discounts:
i. In total;
ii. The totals, separately for DS1s and DS3s; and
iii. Of the total for DS1s and separately, of the total for DS3s, state the number of
circuits that were purchased at a discount from the One Month Term Only Rate of:
a. Less than 10%;
b. Greater than or equal to 10%, but less than 20%;
c. Greater than or equal to 20%, but less than 30%;
d. Greater than or equal to 30%, but less than 40%;
e. Greater than or equal to 40%, but less than 50%; and
f. Greater than or equal to 50%.

related to doing so, identify and describe the relevant Tariff and/or Contract-Based Tariff and section
numbers discussing policies for Changing Service Providers. Include in your description whether the
Tariff or Contract-Based Tariff discusses constraints on the number of circuits that can be changed on a
daily, weekly, or monthly basis, and whether the customer must continue to pay for circuits until they are
changed, and at what rate.
13. Terms and Conditions. In each LSA in which you issued an RFP for DS1 and/or DS3 channel
terminations to an end user within the past 5 years, but either received no responses or received responses
that failed to meet your minimum selection criteria, describe the reasons your RFP failed, if known, and
whether those reasons were associated with terms and conditions.

E. All Members of the Public. We request that the public respond to the following questions:

1. Quality of Questions. We seek comment from the public on the quality, utility, and clarity of this data
request. If there are important issues not covered in this or previous data requests in this proceeding,
please describe those issues, and explain why they are important to this proceeding.
2. Suggestions for Additional Revenue Questions. We seek comment from the public on whether we
should ask for additional Revenue information. For example, this Public Notice does not ask respondents
to provide wholesale and retail Revenues; Revenues by location (other than the collocation questions); or
Revenues over time. Though some may contend that asking for this kind of Revenue information would
give us a better understanding of the supply of DS1, DS3, OCN, and PSDS services, we tentatively
conclude that the benefits of doing so are outweighed by the burdens on the public in producing that
information. We seek comment on this tentative conclusion. If a commenter disagrees with our tentative
conclusion, describe the specific data that should be collected and why the incremental value of collecting
such information justifies the burden of the collection.
Example: A commenter recommends that we collect Revenues in calendar years 2000, 2005, 2009 and
2010; by service type; by carrier; by MSA or wire center; and by whether the Revenues are wholesale or
retail. It further recommends that Revenues should be reported by unit (such as by circuit or rate
element). In making this recommendation, the commenter explains why the incremental value of
collecting such information justifies the burden of doing so.

The proceeding this Notice initiates shall be treated as a "permit-but-disclose" proceeding in
accordance with the Commission's ex parte rules.24 Persons making ex parte presentations must file a
copy of any written presentation or a memorandum summarizing any oral presentation within two
business days after the presentation (unless a different deadline applicable to the Sunshine period applies).
Persons making oral ex parte presentations are reminded that memoranda summarizing the presentation
must (1) list all persons attending or otherwise participating in the meeting at which the ex parte
presentation was made, and (2) summarize all data presented and arguments made during the
presentation. If the presentation consisted in whole or in part of the presentation of data or arguments
already reflected in the presenter's written comments, memoranda or other filings in the proceeding, the
presenter may provide citations to such data or arguments in his or her prior comments, memoranda, or
other filings (specifying the relevant page and/or paragraph numbers where such data or arguments can be
found) in lieu of summarizing them in the memorandum. Documents shown or given to Commission
staff during ex parte meetings are deemed to be written ex parte presentations and must be filed
consistent with rule 1.1206(b). In proceedings governed by rule 1.49(f) or for which the Commission has
made available a method of electronic filing, written ex parte presentations and memoranda summarizing
oral ex parte presentations, and all attachments thereto, must be filed through the electronic comment
filing system available for that proceeding, and must be filed in their native format (e.g., .doc, .xml, .ppt,
searchable .pdf). Participants in this proceeding should familiarize themselves with the Commission's ex
parte
rules.
