   section 59.1 may, but shall not be required to, enter into joint

   technology, information and telecommunications facilities and functions
   and services with a qualifying carrier as a method of fulfilling its
   obligations under section 59.1.

   (c) An incumbent local exchange carrier subject to the requirements of
   section 59.1 shall not be treated by the Commission or any State as a
   common carrier for hire or as offering common carrier services with

   information, or telecommunications facilities, or functions made
   available to a qualifying carrier in accordance with regulations issued
   pursuant to this section.

   (d) An incumbent local exchange carrier subject to the requirements of

   exchange carrier's telephone exchange area.

   (f) An incumbent local exchange carrier subject to the requirements of
   section 59.1 shall file with the State, or, if the State has made no
   provision to accept such filings, with the Commission, for public
   inspection, any tariffs, contracts, or other arrangements showing the
   rates, terms, and conditions under which such carrier is making
   available public switched network infrastructure, technology,
   information and telecommunications facilities and functions pursuant to
