CCMI continues to monitor the volume of Access Compliance filings and collect transmittal and tariff updates in our online document library. This year, effective July 1, 2017, terminating local switching and reciprocal comp rates moved to bill & keep for Price-Cap LECs. Tariffs must be filed to reduce transport rates to $.0007. Rate-of-Return LECs must file tariffs to reduce terminating end-office rates to 1/3 of the difference between $.005 and $.0007.
CCMI works with the state PUCs and with the carriers directly to acquire the supported transmittals and have published over 660 compliance filings to date. We will continue to acquire and publish the filings as they become available. As shown in the map, MD, IL and PA have the most filings so far this year with 47, 56 & 97 respectively. The map will be updated continuously as filings come in. Make sure you subscribe to our blog to receive the latest access updates all season long.
