Background

On September 5, 2000, OnePoint Communications Corp. (OnePoint), and Verizon Communications (Verizon) filed applications pursuant to Section 214 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. § 214, requesting Commission approval of the transfer of control to Verizon of domestic and international authorizations held by OnePoint and its subsidiaries to provide domestic interstate and international telecommunications services as a nondominant carrier. Under the terms of the proposed transaction, Verizon will acquire a controlling interest in OnePoint and its subsidiaries.

OnePoint and Verizon state that the proposed transfer will serve the public interest, convenience, and necessity, by generating substantial benefits for residential consumers who live in apartment buildings. Specifically, OnePoint and Verizon state that the transaction provides funding essential to the preservation and expansion of OnePoint’s core business: providing bundled telecommunications, video, and broadband Internet access to residential customers in multiple dwelling units (MDUs). OnePoint and Verizon also contend that their combination will expedite the deployment of advanced services and applications to residents living in MDUs by enabling them to compete with broadband cable providers. Finally, OnePoint and Verizon state that OnePoint’s operations will comply with Section 271 of the Communications Act upon consummation of the transaction.
