AGENDA OF THE AD HOC MEETING
On October 25, 2001, Qwest Corporation filed with the Commission a Petition For Commission Recommendation That The Federal Communications Commission Grant Qwest Corporation Entry Into The In-Region InterLATA Market Under Section 271 Of The Telecommunications Act Of 1996. Specifically, Qwest Corporation requests that this Commission find, based upon the record presented, that Qwest Corporation has met the competitive checklist and other requirements of 47 U.S.C. Section 271, which prescribe the mechanism by which Qwest Corporation may be found eligible to provide in-region interLATA services and rely upon that finding to provide a favorable recommendation to the Federal Communications Commission. In support of its petition, Qwest Corporation submitted 25 affidavits, a revised Statement of Generally Available Terms, and 7 Reports submitted in the Seven-State Process. Black Hills FiberCom, Midcontinent Communications, and AT&T were granted intervention on November 27, 2001. On March 11, 2002, Midcontinent Communications filed a Motion to Suspend Procedural Schedule or Supplement Prefiled Testimony. Also, on March 13, 2002, AT&T filed a Joinder on Midcontinent Communications' Motion to Suspend Procedural Schedule and Request for Expedited Decision.
