§ 32.5100 Long distance message revenue.
This account shall include revenue derived from message services that
terminate beyond the basic service area of the originating wire center
and are individually priced. This includes those message services which
utilize the public long distance switching network and the basic
subscriber access line. It also includes those long distance calls
placed from mobile and public telephones, as well as any charges for
operator assistance or special billing directly related to the
completion of a specific call. This account shall also include revenue
derived from individually priced message services offered under calling
plans (discounted long distance) which do not utilize dedicated access
lines, as well as those priced at the basic long distance rates where a
discounted toll charge is on a per message basis. Any revenue derived
from monthly or one-time charges for obtaining calling plan services
shall be included in this account. This account includes revenue
derived from the following services:
(a) Long distance services which permit unidirectional calls to a
subscriber from specified services areas (multipoint-to-point service).
These calls require the use of dedicated access lines connecting a
subscriber's premises and a designated central office. These dedicated
access lines are generally separate from those required for the
subscriber to place outward calls. The call is billed to the subscriber
even though it is generally initiated by the subscriber's customer or
(b) Long distance services which permit the subscriber to place
telephone calls from one location to other specified service areas
(point-to-multipoint service). These calls are completed without
operator assistance and require the use of a dedicated access line. The
dedicated access line is generally separate from those required for
inward message services and cannot be used to place calls within the
basic service area or calls outside the selected service areas. Outward
calls are screened and blocked to determine whether the calls are
within an authorized service area.
(c) Services extending beyond the basic service area that involve
dedicated circuits, private switching arrangements, and/or predefined
transmission paths, whether virtual or physical, which provide
communications between specific locations (e.g., point-to-point
communications). Service connection charges, termination charges,
rearrangements and changes, etc., shall be included in this account.
Revenue derived from associated administrative and operational support
services shall also be included in this account.
(1) Narrow-band analog private network circuits and facilities
furnished exclusively for record forms of communications, such as
teletypewriter, teletypesetter, telewriter, ticker, Morse, signaling,
remote metering, and supervisory services.
(2) Private network circuits and facilities (including multipurpose
wide-band) which provide voice grade services for the transmission of
analog signals. It includes revenue from services such as voice, data
and telephoto communication, as well as remote metering, supervisory
control, miscellaneous signaling and channels furnished for the purpose
of extending customer—provided communications systems. It includes
revenue from the provision of facilities between customer premises and
a serving office, a carrier distribution point, or an extension
(3) Private network circuits and facilities furnished for audio program
transmission purposes, such as radio broadcasting, sound recording
(wired music) and loud speaker services. It includes revenue from the
provision of facilities for the transmission of analog signals between
customer premises and a serving office, a carrier distribution point,
or an extension distribution channel furnished in connection with such
services. It also includes revenue from facilities furnished to carry
the audio portion of a television program if furnished under separate
audio rates. If the rate for television program services includes both
the picture and sound portion of the transmission, the revenue shall
also be included in this account.
(4) Private network circuits and facilities furnished for television
program transmission purposes, such as commercial broadcast and
educational or private television services. It includes revenue from
the provision of facilities for the transmission of analog signals
between customer premises and a serving office, a carrier distribution
point, or an extension distribution channel furnished in connection
with such services. It also includes revenue from both the picture and
sound portions of transmission for television program service when
provided under a combined rate schedule.
(5) The provision of circuits and facilities for the transmission of
digital signals only.
(6) The provision of common user channels and switching capabilities
used for the transmission of telecommunication signals between three
(3) or more points in the network. Also included is revenue derived
from the provision of basic switching and transfer arrangements used to

and/or sharing agreements for tariffed long distance public network
services and for tariffed long distance private network services.
