This document makes a number of nonsubstantive, editorial or conforming revisions to the Commission's rules. These revisions are made to delete certain rule provisions that are without current legal effect or are otherwise obsolete. They are also made to clarify, simplify, and harmonize Commission rules, making the rules more readily accessible to the public and avoiding potential confusion for interested parties and Commission staff alike. In addition to deleting balance sheet account instructions that are now obsolete, as well as references to rules that have previously been deleted, this document deletes and amends rules that refer to unbundled network elements that are no longer subject to unbundling as a result of decisions in the Triennial Review proceedings or expired transition periods.
In this document, the Commission continues the process of reviewing its special access rules to ensure that they reflect the state of competition today and promote competition, investment, and access to dedicated communications services businesses across the country rely on every day to deliver their products and services to American consumers. The Report and Order initiates a comprehensive data collection and specifies the nature of the data to be collected and the scope of respondents. An initial version of the data collection is attached to the Report and Order as an appendix; the Report and Order delegates authority to the Commission's Wireline Competition Bureau to review and modify the collection to implement the requirements of the Report and Order.
