The VZ Petition that was forborn was 04-440, the broadband petition that
followed BellSouth's 04-405.
VZ piled on for relief on the packet-switching services like ATM, Frame
Relay, and IP VPN.
My bet would be that any Special Access circuits will be subject to
random pricing going forward.
Basically, they are no longer a common carrier for anything but voice.
You can read the details and comments here:
Commission inaction here is particularly disappointing because the scope
of the relief sought and granted is far from clear. The petition as
filed sought forbearance with respect to all broadband services that the
petitioner “does or may offer.” More than a year after the initial
filing, the petitioner sought to narrow its request, though the
parameters of even this amended filing appear disputed. Moreover, the
petition lacks the sort of careful analysis of the specific sections of
the Act and the specific regulations for which forbearance is sought
that should be required for relief. Even setting aside the question of
whether this should be an independent basis for denial of the petition,
this Commission must seriously consider the need for rigorous procedural
rules to govern filing of forbearance petitions.
