§ 51.703 Non-Access reciprocal compensation obligation of LECs.
(a) Each LEC shall establish Non-Access Reciprocal Compensation
arrangements for transport and termination of Non-Access
Telecommunications Traffic with any requesting telecommunications
(b) A LEC may not assess charges on any other telecommunications
carrier for Non-Access Telecommunications Traffic that originates on
the LEC's network.
(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of the Commission's rules, a
LEC shall be entitled to assess and collect the full charges for the
transport and termination of Non-Access Telecommunications Traffic,
regardless of whether the local exchange carrier assessing the
applicable charges itself delivers such traffic to the called party's
premises or delivers the call to the called party's premises via
contractual or other arrangements with an affiliated or unaffiliated
provider of interconnected VoIP service, as defined in 47 U.S.C.
153(25), or a non-interconnected VoIP service, as defined in 47 U.S.C.
153(36), that does not itself seek to collect Non-Access Reciprocal
Compensation charges for the transport and termination of that
Non-Access Telecommunications Traffic. In no event may the total
charges that a LEC may assess for such service to the called location
exceed the applicable transport and termination rate. For purposes of
this section, the facilities used by the LEC and affiliated or
unaffiliated provider of interconnected VoIP service or a
non-interconnected VoIP service for the transport and termination of
such traffic shall be deemed an equivalent facility under § 51.701.
