TC08-044 -  In the Matter of the Request by Fort Randall Telephone Company for a Waiver of a Requirement to File a Switched Access Cost Study.

            On May 14, 2008, Fort Randall Telephone Company (Fort Randall) filed an application for waiver of the requirement to file a switched access cost study as required by Commission rule.  ARSD 20:10:27:07 requires a carrier's carrier to file cost data in support of its switched access service tariff no less than once every three years.  ARSD 20:10:27:02 provides that the Commission may, for good cause shown, either by its own motion or by application from a carrier's carrier, temporarily waive or suspend any rule in chapters 20:10:27 to 20:10:29, inclusive.  "Fort Randall requests a waiver of the cost study requirement because (1) producing such a study is costly and consumes a great deal of resources; and (2) Fort Randall does not intend to raise access rates at this time, although preliminary analysis indicates that a cost study would likely support higher rates than are currently approved."
