Local Service Regulation The 1996 Act required the FCC to establish national rules implementing the local competition provisions of the 1996 Act, which impose duties on all local exchange carriers, including competitive local exchange companies such as our company, to provide network interconnection, reciprocal compensation, resale, number portability and access to rights-of-way.
However, the obligation of incumbent local exchange companies to provide the unbundled network elements upon which we have relied at such cost-based rates is the subject of recent regulatory action that will result in the availability of these elements being substantially reduced or otherwise subject to significantly higher, non-cost-based rates.
The FCC has encouraged incumbent local exchange companies and competitive local exchange companies to engage in commercial negotiations to provide access to incumbent local exchange company facilities that may no longer be available as unbundled network elements as a result of the withdrawal of unbundling obligations, including the unbundled network element platform.

 Testimony of Irwin A. Popowsky - August 8, 2001   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Chapter 30 was in essence a "quid pro quo." Pennsylvania’s incumbent local exchange companies, and particularly Bell Atlantic-Pennsylvania, attained their long-held goal of freedom from profit-based rate regulation.
In exchange, they were required to commit to the accelerated deployment of a state-of-the art broadband telecommunications network throughout Pennsylvania by 2015.
Importantly and intentionally, the telephone companies would not be permitted to deploy a modern network only in those areas where it was most profitable to do so, but would be required to deploy that network on a balanced basis in urban, suburban, and rural areas of their service territories.
