1) Based on its review of the companies' responses to the Commission's 22 February 2006 and 19 April 2006 questions, Commission staff considers that all, or some, of the companies are either applying, or have applied in the past, link charges in situations where the companies connect their Competitor Digital Network (CDN) services to other Competitor Services they provide. Commission staff also considers that, in the event certain companies incur costs to provide this functionality that are not recovered through rates for the CDN services or other Competitor Services, such costs should be recovered through the rates of a link service that is a Competitor Service.
2) Commission staff also considers that in the event the companies incur costs to connect a CDN and a retail service or another Competitor Service and a retail service that are not recovered through rates of either the Competitor Service or the retail service, such costs should be recovered through the rates of an additional link service.
