§ 54.205 Relinquishment of universal service.
(a) A state commission shall permit an eligible telecommunications
carrier to relinquish its designation as such a carrier in any area
served by more than one eligible telecommunications carrier. An
eligible telecommunications carrier that seeks to relinquish its
eligible telecommunications carrier designation for an area served by
more than one eligible telecommunications carrier shall give advance
notice to the state commission of such relinquishment.
(b) Prior to permitting a telecommunications carrier designated as an
eligible telecommunications carrier to cease providing universal
service in an area served by more than one eligible telecommunications
carrier, the state commission shall require the remaining eligible
telecommunications carrier or carriers to ensure that all customers
served by the relinquishing carrier will continue to be served, and
shall require sufficient notice to permit the purchase or construction
of adequate facilities by any remaining eligible telecommunications
carrier. The state commission shall establish a time, not to exceed one
year after the state commission approves such relinquishment under this
section, within which such purchase or construction shall be completed.
