Public Meeting held

Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission Law Bureau Prosecutory Staff v. Ameritech Payphone Services, Inc. (2000.0333); Doc. No. C-00014691; A-310293

Rescission Order

By the Commission:

   On January 16, 2001, Law Bureau Prosecutory Staff instituted a complaint against Ameritech Payphone Service, Inc. (the Respondent), an IXC reseller certificated at A-310293, for failure to remit payment for its 2000-2001 Annual Assessment. Subsequently, on May 31, 2001, the Commission entered a Default Order which sustained the complaint and cancelled Respondent's certificate of public convenience. The Default Order was published on June 16, 2001 at 31 Pa.B. 3267.

   Subsequent to the issuance of the Default Order, Respondent paid its outstanding assessment on August 31, 2001, representing that the reason for delinquency was administrative oversight. In recognition of the importance of promoting the availability of viable competitive service providers, we will rescind the Default Order and reinstate Respondent's certificate of public convenience. If Respondent again fails to timely pay its assessment, we may not be so favorably disposed, and may require Respondent file a new application along with the applicable $350 application fee; Therefore,

   It is Ordered:

   1.  That the Default Order entered May 31, 2001 at this docket is hereby rescinded.

   2.  That the certificate of public convenience held by Ameritech Payphone Services, Inc. at Docket No. A-310293 is hereby reinstated.

   3.  That a copy of this order be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
