Subject: WUTC denies increase in US West ISDN rate
The Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission today decided
not to consider a request by US West to increase and restructure its
rates for ISDN service in Washington State.
Intel Corporation and an internet trade group, Commercial Internet
Exchange Association, had asked to intervene in US West's general rate
case (Docket No. UT-950200), in which US West had made its ISDN rate
proposals. For unlimited service, US West proposed to increase the
rate from $63 to $184 per month, a 200% increase. Customers using 200
hours of service per month would have paid $69. Other parties in the
case had testified that the existing $63 rate should be lowered.
The effect of the commission's decision is that no change will be made
in the current ISDN rate until US West files a new tariff for this
service and that tariff is considered by the commission.
The commission has been taking public comment on the ISDN issue since
Intel's petition was filed on Dec. 28. The e-mail address for those
comments is email@example.com.
A written order denying the ISDN rate increase will be posted on the
WUTC's web site (URL listed below) as soon as it becomes available.
