TC08-003 - In the Matter of the Request by Qwest Corporation for a Waiver of a Requirement to File a Switched Access Cost Study. 


              On January 14, 2008, Qwest Corporation (Qwest) 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.  "Qwest 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) Qwest does not intend to raise access rates at this time, although preliminary analysis indicates that a cost study would likely support higher rates than even those from the last study."
