§ 9.7 Access to 911 and E911 service capabilities.
(a) Access. Subject to the other requirements of this part, an owner or
controller of a capability that can be used for 911 or E911 service
shall make that capability available to a requesting interconnected
VoIP provider as set forth in paragraphs (a)(1) and (a)(2) of this
(1) If the owner or controller makes the requested capability available
to a CMRS provider, the owner or controller must make that capability
available to the interconnected VoIP provider. An owner or controller
makes a capability available to a CMRS provider if the owner or
controller offers that capability to any CMRS provider.
(2) If the owner or controller does not make the requested capability
available to a CMRS provider within the meaning of paragraph (a)(1) of
this section, the owner or controller must make that capability
available to a requesting interconnected VoIP provider only if that
capability is necessary to enable the interconnected VoIP provider to
provide 911 or E911 service in compliance with the Commission's rules.
(b) Rates, terms, and conditions. The rates, terms, and conditions on
which a capability is provided to an interconnected VoIP provider under
paragraph (a) of this section shall be reasonable. For purposes of this
paragraph, it is evidence that rates, terms, and conditions are
reasonable if they are:
(1) The same as the rates, terms, and conditions that are made
available to CMRS providers, or
(2) In the event such capability is not made available to CMRS
providers, the same rates, terms, and conditions that are made
available to any telecommunications carrier or other entity for the
provision of 911 or E911 service.
(c) Permissible use. An interconnected VoIP provider that obtains
access to a capability pursuant to this section may use that capability
only for the purpose of providing 911 or E911 service in accordance
with the Commission's rules.
