TC97-035 Application by CommChoice, LLC for a Certificate of Authority to operate as a telecommunications company within the state of South Dakota. (Staff: TS/KC)

"CommChoice will provide telecommunications services including local exchange services, intraLATA services and interLATA services through a combination of reseller and facilities-based provisioning. The specific products and services are in part dependent upon resale agreements entered into with local exchange companies. CommChoice will enter into agreements with local exchange companies for the resale of telecommunications services. These services will be provided by the local exchange company in the same manner they have been provided in the past. Initially, telecommunications services will be offered to commercial and industrial businesses located in South Dakota cities served by U S WEST. As resale agreements with other local exchange companies are executed, CommChoice will expand its service territory to include additional cities....CommChoice requests a waiver from ARSD 20:10:24:02(8) which requires tariffs and terms and conditions of service to be filed. The cost to provide local exchange service cannot be estimated until resale interconnection agreements between the parties have been reached and contracts executed. When the specific costs and contractual arrangements are known, rates and terms and conditions will be filed with the Commission, as required by the PUC."
