For years the vast majority of ILEC regulated revenues have come from selling special access services to other LECs and enterprise customers. For those unfamiliar with this term, ILEC special access consists of a family of circuits that provide dedicated connections between two or more customer designated premises at various capacity levels. These circuits are usually used by business customers to transmit data between locations. Special access is often economical for businesses because dedicated circuits are charged a flat monthly rate rather than on a minute of use basis. Therefore, the more traffic a business can pump over a circuit each month, the lower its equivalent minute of use charge would be.
