IMPORTANT NOTICE RELATING TO THIS GUIDE AND FORMER TARIFFS

 

Prior to August 1, 2001, service was furnished under WorldCom Technologies Tariff FCC No. 1 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.

 

·        WorldCom Technologies Tariff FCC No. 1 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 WorldCom Technologies Tariff FCC No. 1, 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 WorldCom Technologies Tariff FCC No. 1 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 WorldCom Technologies Tariff FCC. No. 1 and currently contained in this Guide.

 

·                  Except as noted in the preceding paragraph, the text of this Guide replicates the information contained in former WorldCom Technologies Tariff FCC No. 1 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.”

                                                (3)        Where there is connection via Customer‑provided terminal equipment or communications systems to a Message Telecommunications Service, to prevent the interruption or disconnection of calls or interference with network control signaling, it is necessary that the signal applied by the Customer‑ provided equipment to the interface at no time has energy solely in the 2450 to 2740 hertz band.  If signal power is in the 2450 to 2750 hertz band, it must not exceed the power present at the same time in the 800 to 2450 hertz band.

 

                                                (4)        Where such Customer‑provided equipment or communications system applies, signals having components in the frequency spectrum below 300 hertz, excluding ringing signals, the currents and voltages (including all harmonics and spurious signals) at the interface shall not exceed the limits indicated in (a) through (d) the following:

 

                                                            (a)        The maximum rms (root‑mean‑square) value, including dc and ac components of the current per conductor shall not exceed 0.35 ampere.

 

                                                            (b)        The magnitude of the peak of the conductor or ground voltage shall not exceed 70 volts.

 

                                                            (c)        The conductor voltage shall be such that the conductor‑to‑ground voltage limit in (2) preceding is not exceeded.  If the signal source is not grounded, the voltage limit in (2) preceding applies to the conductor‑to‑conductor voltage.

 

                                                            (d)        The total weighted rms voltage within the band from 50 hertz shall not exceed 100 volts.  The total weighted rms voltage is the square root of the sum of the products times the square of the rms voltage of the individual frequency components.

 

                                                            For Frequencies Between                      Weighing Factor

 

                                                            50 Hertz and 100 Hertz              f2/104

                                                            100 Hertz and 300 Hertz                        f3.3/106.6

 

                                                            Where f is the numerical value of the frequency, in hertz, of the frequency component being weighted.

 

                                    D)        If the Customer fails to maintain and operate its terminal equipment properly, resulting in the occurrence or possibility of harm to the Company's equipment, personnel, or the quality of service to other Customers, the Company may, upon written notice, require repair, maintenance or the use of protective equipment at the Customer's expense.  If such repair, maintenance or use of protective equipment fails to produce satisfactory results, the Company may, upon written notice terminate the Customer's service immediately.

 

2.12      CANCELLATION OF SERVICE

 

            2.12.1               For any of the following reasons, the Company may discontinue service or cancel an application for all services without incurring any liability.  Separate accounts for the same Customer are also subject to this provision.

2.15      TELECOMMUNICATIONS RELAY SERVICE ("TRS")

 

            TRS is a service which permits hearing and/or speech impaired Customers who have been certified, in writing, by a licensed physician, audiologist, speech pathologist, or appropriate state or federal agency, as having a hearing or speech impairment which precludes oral communications and who use a Telecommunications Device for the Deaf (TDD), to complete calls to Customers who do not use TDD.  Customers originating a call, either by voice or TDD, reach the TRS Center for their respective state via a toll free number.  The completed call is rated as a call from the originating telephone number to the terminating telephone number.

 

            Customers who wish to use TRS service must provide written application and certification of a speech or hearing impairment to the Company.  The Customer shall designate to the Company one and only one telephone number associated with that Customer's service and telecommunications device.

 

            This service includes domestic interstate (see the Company's Tariff F.C.C. No. 2) and international calls that originate to states where TRS is available.  The rates for international calls are as specified in Section 4.3.1.  TRS calls are not eligible for any discounts associated with other calling plans.  All TRS calls are confidential and may not be placed to 900 or 976 numbers.


SECTION 3 - APPLICATION OF RATES

 

3.1       DETERMINATION AND RENDERING OF CHARGES

 

            Charges for service are applied on a recurring and non-recurring basis.  Service is provided and billed on a monthly basis.

 

            3.1.1     Start of Billing

 

                        For the purpose of billing, service will be deemed to be started on the day the service and its asso­ciated equipment, if any, is installed.  Where billing is based upon Customer usage, Customers will be billed for all usage commencing on the date usage begins.

 

            3.1.2     Minimum Service Period

 

                        Subject to the Company's right to cancel or suspend services as otherwise provided in this tariff, the minimum service period for services is thirty (30) days.  Termina­tion by Customer is effective thirty (30) days after receipt by the Company of a written notice of cancellation.  Termination by the Company is effec­tive thirty (30) days after delivery of written notice or as otherwise set forth in this tariff or other agree­ment of the Customer and the Company.

 

                        In situations where a Special Customer Arrangements is requested, the minimum service period and charges will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

 

            3.1.3     Application of Charges

 

                        All monthly recurring charges are billed one month in advance.  Initial and final month's billing, when the service period is less than a month, will be prorated at 1/30th of the month's recurring charge for each day the service was rendered or equipment was provided.

 

                        Usage charges are billed monthly for the preceding billing period.  For periods less than the monthly billing period, minimum usage charges are prorated at 1/30th of the monthly minimum amount for each day the service was rendered.

 

            3.1.4     Calculation of Fractional Charges

 

                        Charges for a fractional part of a month are calculated by counting the number of days remaining in the billing period after service is furnished.  Divide that number of days figure by thirty days (billing period).  The result is then multiplied by the applicable monthly service charge to arrive at the appropriate fractional monthly service charge.

 

                        For each call the minimum charge shall be the applicable charge for the initial billing increment described for each service in this tariff, with use in excess of the initial billing increment charged at the applicable rate per minute.  If the final interval of a call is less than the applicable billing increment, the fractional billing increment will be rounded up to the next full increment for purposes of billing.

 

                        All per call charges or credits of fractional cents shall be rounded to the next full cent unless otherwise stated in the specific product description contained in Section 4 of this tariff.

 

            3.1.5     Rate Periods

 

                        Rate Periods will apply as stated in the specific product descriptions.  In cases where a call begins in one rate period and continues into another, the rate in effect in each period will apply to the portion of the call occurring within the applicable rate period.

 

            3.1.6     Billing Increments

 

                        Billing increments are product specific.  All per call charges of fractional cents will be rounded to the next full cent unless otherwise stated in the specific product descriptions.

 

            3.1.7     Calculation of Distance

 

                        Usage charges for all mileage sensitive products are based on the airline distance between rate centers associated with the originating and terminating points of the call.

 

                        The airline mileage between rate centers is determined by applying the formula below to the vertical and horizontal coordinates associated with the rate centers involved.  The Company uses the rate centers and associated vertical and horizontal coordinated that are produced by Bell Communication Research in their NPA‑NXX V&H Coordinate Tape and AT&T Tariff No. 10.  The airline mileage between rate centers is calculated as follows, where V1 and H1 are the vertical and horizontal coordinates of point 1 and V2 and H2 are the vertical and horizontal coordinates of point 2.

 

                        FORMULA:

 

(V1 – V2) 2 + (H1 – H2)2

                  10

 

3.2       TIMING OF CALLS

 

            Billable time for service is the duration of time between the called station answering and the called or calling station disconnecting, provided duration may be rounded in accordance with specific service descriptions in this tariff.

 

3.3       ORIGINATION STATE LISTING

 

            The following state categories will apply to Six Second Switched Service and Dedicated Access Service calls originating in the state categories as listed below and terminating in the international locations as specified in each product.

            4.2.4     Public Payphone and Restricted Line Surcharges

 

                        In order to recover the Company's expenses to comply with the FCC's payphone compensation plan adopted October 9, 1997 (FCC 97-371), a Surcharge will apply to all completed interstate and intrastate calls originating from pay telephones and other restricted lines including:

 

                        1)         calls billed to a Company-issued access code (e.g., WorldCom Calling Card, prepaid cards);

                        2)         "0+" and other calls billed collect, to a third number, to a commercial credit card, or to a calling card issued by a local exchange carrier; and

                        3)         calls placed via Company toll-free (800 or 888) numbers to any Customer.

 

                        No discounts shall apply to Public Payphone and Restricted Line Surcharges. Pay telephones include coin-operated and coinless phones owned by local telephone companies, independent companies and other interexchange carriers.  The Public Payphone and Restricted Line Surcharge applies to the initial completed call and any reoriginated call (i.e., using the "#" symbol) completed and billed as described above.

 

                        A)         Application of Public Payphone and Restricted Line Surcharges

 

                                    Individual calls which otherwise meet the criteria above will be identified as subject to the Public Payphone and Restricted Line Surcharge when coding digits transmitted to the Company at the time the call is placed indicate that the call originates from a payphone (ANI ii digits 27, 29 or 70) or a restricted line class (ANI ii digits 07) commonly associated with payphones.  The Surcharge shall apply to calls originated from all such restricted lines regardless of whether the line is actually associated with a payphone.

 

                                    Whenever possible, the Public Payphone and Restricted Line Surcharge will appear on the same invoice containing the usage charges for the surcharged call.  The application of the Surcharge to Restricted Lines (ANI 07) shall cease as soon as practicable upon suspension, vacation, or expiration of the Temporary Waiver Order, DA 97-2162, concerning the obligations of local exchange carriers to provide payphone coding digits, issued October 7, 1997 by the Common Carrier Bureau of the Commission in CC Docket 96-128.

 

                                    At the Company's option, in cases where proper payphone coding digits are not transmitted to the Company prior to completion of a call, the Public Payphone and Restricted Line Surcharge may be billed on a subsequent invoice after the Company has obtained information from a local exchange carrier which confirms that the originating station is an eligible payphone.
