Prior to August 1, 2001, service was furnished under WIDSI Tariff FCC No. 4 filed with the Federal Communications Commission and now canceled. Beginning August 1, 2001, service is being furnished pursuant to this Guide and any underlying written contract between the Company and the Customer.
Please note the following regarding this important change.
· WIDSI Tariff FCC No. 4 was amended on June 23, 2001 to incorporate new or revised General Definitions and new or revised General Terms and Conditions of Service contained in WorldCom Tariff FCC No. 1. Like the service in former WIDSI Tariff FCC No. 4, these General Definitions and General Terms and Conditions are now part of this Guide and, therefore, are part of customer service contracts. Some of the definitions and terms and conditions contained in former WIDSI Tariff FCC No. 4 are reflected in the General Definitions and General Terms and Conditions of Service and, accordingly, were removed from the former tariff at the time of detariffing on July 31, 2001. This explains why there may be omissions or gaps in the service information previously found in WIDSI Tariff FCC. No. 4 and currently contained in this Guide.
· Except as noted in the preceding paragraph, the text of this Guide replicates the information contained in former WIDSI Tariff FCC No. 4 on July 31, 2001.
· If there is an inconsistency between a General Definition or a General Term and Condition, a service-specific definition or term and condition, or a definition and term and condition contained in a written contract between the Company and the Customer, the relationship with the Customer will consist of the following, in order of precedence from (1) through (3): (1) the definition or term and condition in the written contract; (2) the service-specific definition or term and condition; and (3) the General Definition or Term and Condition. An inconsistency will be deemed to include any instance in which a service-specific definition or a service-specific term and condition has no counterpart in the General Definitions or the General Terms and Conditions of Service.
· The Company may change the Guide from time to time and any change made will be binding on customers after fulfillment of the notice period set forth in Section 7.B of the General Terms and Conditions.
· Any reference to tariff within the text of the Guide shall mean Guide.
