 The PA CWG1 was formed in 2003 under Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (Commission) Order to provide a mechanism for Verizon Pennsylvania, LLC2 (Verizon PA ) and competitive local exchange carriers (CLEC) in this Commonwealth to resolve metrics and remedies issues relative to the wholesale interconnection services that the CLECs obtain from Verizon PA and to coordinate with similar carrier working groups in other jurisdictions. Primary participation in the PA CWG is open to this Commonwealth's incumbent local exchange carriers, CLECs, statutory advocates and Commission staff, as well as consultants sponsored by these Commonwealth entities. Secondary participation is open to entities from other jurisdictions in the traditional Verizon footprint.

 Further, the new industry facilitator of the PA CWG is Margaret Rubino of Windstream. Carrier-to-carrier matters related to metrics and remedies proposals and reports of performance in calendar year 2017 will be processed at Doc. No. M-2017-2582567.

 The Commission will publish this Secretarial Letter in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. For questions related to the PA CWG, contact either Margaret Rubino,, or Louise Fink Smith, Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission,
