that the carrier may not provide either of the following services
unless it has received specific authority to do so under § 63.18(e)(3):
(1) Resold switched services to a non-WTO Member country where the
applicant is, or is affiliated with, a foreign carrier; and
(2) Switched or private line services over resold private lines to a
destination market where the applicant is, or is affiliated with, a
foreign carrier and the Commission has not determined that the foreign
carrier lacks market power in the destination market (see § 63.10(a)).

affiliated carrier regulated as dominant on the route to be served

section and in § 63.17(b), the carrier may provide service by reselling

resold private lines in either of the following two circumstances:
