RE:  Mornington Communications Limited Tariff Notice 62B – Final rate for direct connect services  

Dear Sir:

On 22 August 2017, the Commission received an application by Mornington Communications Co-operative Limited (Mornington) under Tariff Notice (TN) 62B, proposing revisions to its General Tariff Section 720 – Toll Interconnection Services to reflect the Direct Connect Charge rates approved in Telecom Order 2017-282, 10 August 2017 (Order 2017-282), among other things.

By letter, dated 29 August 2017, Mornington proposed to withdraw TN 62B in its entirety due to an error in procedure.

In Order 2017-282, the Commission approved, with changes, on a final basis rates for the direct connect services provided by certain small incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs), including Mornington.

In the order, the Commission directed these small ILECs to issueFootnote1 within 30 days of the date of the order, revised tariff pages reflecting the determinations set out in the order. Therefore, Mornington should not have filed a tariff application.

Accordingly, Mornington’s request to withdraw TN 62B is appropriate and TN 62B is considered to be withdrawn.
