Goto Year:2013 |
§ 69.121 Connection charges for expanded interconnection.
(a) Appropriate connection charge subelements shall be established for
the use of equipment and facilities that are associated with offerings
of expanded interconnection for special access and switched transport
services, as defined in part 64, subpart N of this chapter. To the
extent that the same equipment and facilities are used to provide
expanded interconnection for both special access and switched
transport, the same connection charge subelements shall be used.
(1) A cross-connect subelement shall be established for charges
associated with the cross-connect cable and associated facilities
connecting the equipment owned by or dedicated to the use of the
interconnector with the telephone company's equipment and facilities
used to provide interstate special or switched access services. Charges
for the cross-connect subelement shall not be deaveraged within a study
area that is used for purposes of jurisdictional separations.
(2) Charges for subelements associated with physical collocation or
virtual collocation, other than the subelement described in paragraph
(a)(1) of this section and subelements recovering the cost of the
virtual collocation equipment described in § 64.1401(e)(1) of this
chapter, may reasonably differ in different central offices,
notwithstanding § 69.3(e)(7).
(b) Connection charge subelements shall be computed based upon the
costs associated with the equipment and facilities that are included in
such subelements, including no more than a just and reasonable portion
of the telephone company's overhead costs.
(c) Connection charge subelements shall be assessed upon all
interconnectors that use the equipment or facilities that are included
in such subelements.
