NECA Requests Waiver of Switched Access Rate Adjustment Rule


The National Exchange Carrier Association, Inc. (NECA) has requested an expedited waiver of the FCC’s rule which requires NECA to adjust its pool switched access rate caps to reflect changes when carriers enter or exit NECA’s traffic sensitive pool.  NECA states that 24 companies will exit the NECA traffic sensitive pool for the 2014-2015 tariff period, but contends that the actions will have a de minimis impact on switched access rates, and therefore a waiver of the FCC’s rule requiring a rate adjustment is warranted.  Comments on NECA’s waiver request are due on or before April 3, 2014.
