This is one of a series of new collections related to the Telecommunications Act of 1996 provisions seeking to introduce more competition into the provisioning of pay telephone services and also to ensure that local exchange carriers and owners of pay telephones are adequately compensated by interexchange carriers for so-called dial-around long distance calls. There have been a number of public comments on this rulemaking docket. The FCC is encouraged to weigh the burden imposed by the payment and information mechanism contained in the ultimate rule.

The attached item addresses provisions in the Telecommunications Act of 1996 that are intended to foster development of competition in the provision of local telephone service. Interexchange carriers responsible for paying per-call compensation must submit annual reports to the Common Carrier Bureau listing the amount of compensation paid to pay phone providers and the number of payees. IXCs will also be required to initiate an annual independent audit of their per-call tracking functions. This would help ensure that all interexchange carriers are paying their respective compensation..
