In re: Advanced Telemanagement Group, Inc. (2007 Annual Report); Doc. No. A-311342F0002; A-311342

Tentative Order

By the Commission:

   Advanced Telemanagement Group, Inc. (''Advanced Telemanagment'') has failed to file its 2007 Annual Report pursuant to section 504 of the Public Utility Code. 66 Pa.C.S. § 504. Specifically, 66 Pa.C.S. § 504 provides that:

The commission may require any public utility to file periodical reports, at such times, and in such form, and of such content, as the commission may prescribe, and special reports concerning any matter whatsoever about which the commission is authorized to inquire, or to keep itself informed, or which it is required to enforce.

   Advanced Telemanagement is a competitive local exchange carrier and a reseller of interexchange toll services certificated at A-311342F0002 and A-311342, respectively. Commission staff's several attempts to reach Advanced Telemanagement by mail and phone to file the missing report have been unsuccessful. Additionally, Advanced Telemanagement's former outside consultant has advised Commission staff that Advanced Telemanagement is out of business and is in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation proceeding.

   The Commission puts the industry on notice that we will not hesitate to invoke our authority under the Public Utility Code to ensure timely compliance with our regulations and orders including the ordering of such other remedy as the Commission may deem appropriate. 66 Pa.C.S. §§ 504, 505, 506 and 3301. Based on the previous facts, we tentatively conclude that it is appropriate to revoke Advanced Telemanagement's certificates of public convenience without the necessity of a formal complaint as being in the public interest. Also, Advanced Telemanagement currently has no NXX codes. Furthermore, the Commission may take other appropriate action, including the imposition of penalties under section 3301, in lieu of cancellation, if Advanced Telemanagement seeks relief from this Tentative Order; Therefore,

It Is Ordered That:

   1.  The revocation of Advanced Telemanagement Group, Inc.'s certificates of public convenience are hereby tentatively approved as being in the public interest.

   2.  The Secretary serve a copy of this Tentative Order upon the Office of Consumer Advocate, the Office of Small Business Advocate, and the Office of Trial Staff, and also cause a copy of this Tentative Order to be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin with a 30-day comment period.

   3.  The absence the filing of adverse public comment within 30 days after publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin, this Tentative Order shall become final without further action by the Commission.

   4.  Upon this order becoming final, and without further action by the Commission, the certificates of public convenience held by Advanced Telemanagement Group, Inc. at A-311342F0002 and A-311342 shall be canceled, and Advanced Telemanagement's name stricken from all active utility lists maintained by the Commission's Bureau of Fixed Utility Services and the Assessment Section of the Bureau of Administrative Services.
