[31 Pa.B. 3002]

   Public Meeting held
May 24, 2001

Commissioners Present:  John M. Quain, Chairperson; Robert K. Bloom, Vice Chairperson; Nora Mead Brownell; Aaron Wilson, Jr.; Terrance J. Fitzpatrick

Tentative Order

   On February 22, 1996, the Commission entered an Order approving the application of Access Network Services, Inc. for authority to offer telecommunications services as a competitive local exchange carrier reseller within this Commonwealth. On March 24, 2001, Law Bureau Prosecutory Staff mailed Access Network Services, Inc., whose address on file was 3625 Queen Palm Drive, Tampa, FL 33619-7558, a letter advising that as of March 23, 2001, the Commission had not received the necessary initial tariff for this service. This letter was returned to the Commission stamped ''Returned to sender. Not deliverable as addressed. Unable to forward.''

   Section 1302 of the Public Utility Code (66 Pa.C.S. § 1302) (relating to the filing of tariffs), provides in pertinent part:

   Under such regulations as the commission may prescribe, every public utility shall file with the commission, within such time and in such form as the commission may designate, tariffs showing all rates established by it and collected or enforced, or to be collected or enforced, within the jurisdiction of the commission.

   We hold that because Access Network Services, Inc. never filed a tariff in violation of § 1302, Access Network Services, Inc.'s authority should be rescinded; Therefore,

It is Ordered that:

   1.  Access Network Services, Inc.'s authority to offer services as a competitive local exchange carrier reseller within this Commonwealth under Order entered on February 22, 1996, Docket No. A-310342, F0002, is hereby cancelled.

   2.  This Tentative Order shall be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. In the event no exceptions or comments are filed to this Tentative Order within 30 calendar days from date of publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin, the Tentative Order shall become final without further action by this Commission.

   3.  Upon this Order becoming final, the Secretary's Bureau shall strike the company's name from all active-utility lists maintained by the Annual Report

   Section of the Bureau of Fixed Utility Services and the Assessment Section of the Bureau of Administrative Services.
