1. TC04-010 In the Matter of the Filing by Qwest Corporation for Approval of Revisions to its Access Service Tariff. (Staff Analyst: Harlan Best, Staff Attorney: Kelly Frazier)

On January 20, 2004, Qwest Corporation (Qwest) filed revised pages to its South Dakota Access Service Tariff. According to Qwest, "these revisions modify the intrastate jurisdictional reporting requirements for switched access traffic. This filing proposes to modify tariffs to allow customers to self-report a Percent Other Messages (POM) of intrastate use. Customers will be asked to self-declare a POM in addition to their PIU [Percent Intrastate Usage]. Qwest requests this filing to be effective February 16, 2004." Qwest has filed to reduce the Carrier Common Line rate to $0.038420 from $0.038905 and to introduce Message Charges to the Common Channel Signaling Network. On February 5, 2004, AT&T Communications of the Midwest, Inc. (AT&T) filed a Petition for Leave to Intervene. Black Hills FiberCom, LLC filed a Petition to Intervene on February 13, 2004.

TODAY, shall the Commission grant Black Hills FiberCom, LLC's Petition to Intervene?
