§ 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.
