    Our division recommends rules and regulatory programs that address interconnection and unbundling requirements for Local Exchange Carriers (LECs), the unbundling of network features and functions useful to information service providers (ISPs), competition in the Interexchange Marketplace, the regulatory classification of carriers. Additionally, we are tasked with reviewing applications from wireline carriers for transfers of licenses and discontinuance of service.
