1.3.11 ALLOWANCES FOR INTERRUPTION IN SERVICE (Cont’d)

An interruption period begins when the Customer reports a service, facility, or circuit to be interrupted and releases it for testing and repair. An interruption period ends when the service is operative. If the Customer reports the service to be inoperative but declines to release it for testing and repair, it is considered to be impaired, but not interrupted.

For calculating credit allowances, every month is considered to have thirty (30) days.

A credit allowance is applied on a pro rata basis against the rates specified hereunder and is dependent upon the length of the interruption. Only those services on the interrupted portion of the circuit will receive a credit.

In case of an interruption to any service, allowance for the period of interruption, if not due to the negligence of the Customer, shall be as follows:

A credit allowance will be given, upon receipt of the customer to the business office, for interruptions of 30 minutes or more. Credit allowances will be calculated as follows:

If interruption continues for less than 24 hours:

(a) 1/30 th

of the monthly rate if it is the first interruption in the same billing period.

(b) 2/30 th

of the monthly rate if there was a previous interruption of at least 24 hours in the same billing period.

If the interruption continues for more than 24 hours:

(a) if caused by storm, fire, flood or other conditions out of Company’s control,

1/30 th

of the monthly rate for each 24 hours of interruption

(b) for other interruptions, 1/30 th

of the monthly rate for the first 24 hours and

2/30ths of such rate for each additional 24 hours (or fraction thereof); however, if service is interrupted for over 24 hours, more than once in the same billing period, the 2/30ths allowance applies to the first 24 hours of the second and subsequent interruptions.

Two or more interruptions of 15 minutes or more during any one 24-hour period shall be considered as one interruption.

Except as otherwise specified in the Company’s applicable tariffs, the amount of such deposit shall not exceed the amount of charges for service which it is estimated will accrue for a period of two months; however, after service has been established and experience demonstrates that the amount of the outstanding deposit is not suitable to safeguard the interests of the Company, the Company may require an adjustment of the deposit not exceeding the charges which it is estimated will accrue for a period of two months. When service is terminated, any balance of the deposit remaining after deduction of all sums due the Company will be returned to the customer, or the deposit may be returned at any time previous at the option of the Company.

No residential deposit shall be held beyond a one-year period during which the customer has established satisfactory credit. Interest on deposits will be paid each year at a rate which is established in January of each year to equal the average of the percent annual yields of one year Treasury bills (auction average issue date) for October, November and December of the preceding year. The Commission notifies utilities in January of each year of the rate prevailing for that year. At the option of each customer making a deposit, the Company shall annually make either direct payment to the customer of all accrued interest, or shall credit it to the customer’s account.

When the Company requires a deposit from any residential customer, said customer should be permitted to pay it in three consecutive equal monthly installments whenever the total amount of the required deposit exceeds the sum of forty dollars ($40.00).

The fact that a deposit has been made shall in no way relieve the applicant or customer from complying with the tariff regulations for the prompt payment of bills on presentation. Each applicant from whom a deposit is collected will be given a certificate of deposit and circular containing the terms and conditions applicable to deposits, in accordance with the Rules and

Regulations of the Commission pertaining to customer deposits.

2.7.2 Customer Overpayments

The Company will provide interest on customer overpayments that are not refunded within

30 days of the date the Company receives the overpayment.

2.11.7 Jurisdictional Reports

Where possible, the Company will determine the jurisdiction of both originating and terminating calls from the call detail records generated via the switched network, and bill usage according to such determination. A call that enters the Customer’s or Other

Network Provider’s (“ONP”) network in a state different from the state in which the called station is located will be classified as interstate. A call that enters the

Customer’s or ONP’s network at a point within the same state where the called station is located will be classified as intrastate. In these situations, the call is compensated according to the Company’s switched access service rates, terms and conditions. A call that enters the Company network at a point within the same local calling area where the called station is located, as defined by the local exchange tariff of the incumbent LEC in whose territory the call completes, will be classified as local and subject to reciprocal compensation as described in Section 7.

In those cases where it is not possible for the Company to determine the jurisdiction of the call from the call detail, the Customer or ONP may provide the Company with a Percent Interstate Use (PIU) in order for the Company to properly jurisdictionalize intrastate from interstate services. The Customer or ONP may also provide a percent local use (PLU) to be applied to intrastate usage in order to separate the local traffic component. The percent, which should be represented as a whole number, is determined by taking the total interstate or local usage and dividing by the total minutes of use. For example, a Customer or ONP may have 100 total minutes for a bill period. In a situation where the Company might not be able to determine the jurisdiction of those minutes, the Customer or ONP would submit its PIU and PLU. If

90 MOUs were interstate, the PIU would be 90% and the customer would be invoiced for 90 MOUs at the interstate rate as tariffed. The remaining 10 MOUs are assumed to be intrastate if the Company cannot determine jurisdiction unless the Customer or

ONP submits a PLU. If 9 minutes were local, the PLU would be 90% and the customer would be invoiced for 9 MOUs at the reciprocal compensation rate and the remaining 1 MOU at the intrastate switched access rate. The Customer or ONP may update the jurisdictional percentages reported to the Company on the First of January,

First of April, First of July, and First of October. Reports should be

2.11.7 Jurisdictional Reports (Cont’d) received no later than the 20 th

of each month. Reports will be used on a go-forward basis, and will be in effect until the Customer submits a revised report. Customers beginning service in the middle of a quarter may submit a jurisdictional report at the onset of service.

In the absence of a Customer-or ONP provided percent interstate use or percent local use, the following percentages will be used:

The percentage interstate use factor will be used by the Company to determine interstate and intrastate rates and charges where the Company cannot itself determine the jurisdiction of the call transiting its network. If the Customer does not provide a percent interstate use factor as provided in this section, the Company will apply a default factor PIU factor of fifty percent (50%) and assess the remaining minutes/facilities under the terms of the applicable state access tariff.

No pro-rating or back-billing will be done based on the report. The Company may require call detail records to substantiate projected interstate usage provided to the

Company. In the event that the required jurisdictional report is not provided, the

Company recorded or estimated percentage of interstate usage will be applied to the bill.

The Company reserves the right to verify the percents on the jurisdictional reports by examination of the underlying data. The Company will submit a request for verification in writing to the Customer or ONP. Such a request will occur no more than once a year. Once the request is received, the Customer will have 30 days to supply or otherwise make available the data to the Company.

The Company may request this detailed information annually. If the audit results represent a substantial deviation from the Customer's or ONP’s previously reported

PIU/PLU for the period upon which the audit was based, the call detail records may be requested more than once annually.

2.11.8 Mixed Interstate and Intrastate Access Service

When mixed interstate and intrastate Access Service is provided, all charges, including nonrecurring charges, usage charges, and optional features, will be prorated between interstate and intrastate. The percentage provided in the reports as set forth in 2.11.7 will serve as the basis for prorating the charges. The percentage of an

Access Service to be charged as intrastate is applied in the following manner:

A. For nonrecurring chargeable rate elements, multiply the percent intrastate use times the quantity of chargeable elements times the state tariff rate per element.

B. For usage sensitive chargeable rate elements, multiply the percent intrastate use times actual use (measure or Company assumed average use) times the stated rate.

2.11.9 Measurement of Access Minutes

Customer traffic to end offices will be measured (recorded or assumed) by the

Company at end office switches or access tandem switches. Originating and terminating calls will be measured or imputed to determine the basis for computing chargeable access minutes.

With Multifrequency Address Signaling, usage measurement begins when the originating entry switch receives the acknowledgment wink supervisory signal forwarded from the Customer’s point of termination. For originating calls with SS7, usage measurement begins when either the Exit Message (EXM) or the Address

Complete Message (ACM) is received.

The measurement of originating call usage ends when the entry switch receives disconnect supervision from either the originating end user’s end office, indicating the originating end user has disconnected, or the customer’s point of termination, whichever is recognized first by the entry switch.

VSCC Tariff No. 3

Original Page No. 49.2

(1) VoIP-PSTN traffic is defined as traffic exchanged over the public switched telephone network (“PSTN”) facilities that originates and/or terminates in

Internet protocol (“IP”) format. This section governs the identification of toll

VoIP-PSTN (“toll VoIP”) traffic that in the absence of an interconnection agreement will be subject to interstate switched access rates in accordance with the Federal Communications Commission Report and Order in WC

Docket Nos. 10-90, etc., FCC No. 11-161 released (Nov. 18, 2011) (“FCC

Order”) as it may hereinafter be amended or clarified. Specifically, this section establishes the method of distinguishing toll VoIP traffic from the customer’s total intrastate access traffic, so that toll VoIP traffic will be billed in accordance with the FCC Order.

(2) This section will be applied to the billing of switched access charges to a customer that is a local exchange carrier only to the extent that the customer has also implemented billing of interstate access charges for VoIP-PSTN

Traffic in accordance with the FCC Order.

(B) Rating of toll VoIP-PSTN traffic

The Telephone Company will bill toll VoIP-PSTN traffic which it identifies in accordance with this tariff section at rates equal to the Telephone Company’s applicable tariffed interstate switched access rates.

(C) Calculation and Application of Percent-VoIP-Usage Factor

The Telephone Company will determine the number of toll VoIP traffic minutes of use (“MOU”) to which it will apply its interstate rates under subsection (B), above, by applying an originating Percent VoIP Usage (“OPVU”) factor to the total intrastate access MOU originated by a Telephone Company end user and delivered to the customer and by applying a terminating PVU (“TPVU”) factor to the total intrastate access MOU terminated by a customer to the Telephone Company’s end user. The OPVU and TPVU will be derived and applied as follows:

(2) The customer will calculate and furnish to the Telephone Company a TPVU factor, along with supporting documentation, representing the whole number percentage of the customer’s total terminating intrastate access MOU that the customer exchanges with the Telephone Company in the State that is sent to the Telephone Company and originated in IP format.

(3) The OPVU, TPVU and supporting documentation shall be based on information that is verifiable by the Telephone Company including but not limited to the number of the customer’s retail VoIP subscriptions in the state

(e.g., as reported on FCC Form 477), traffic studies, actual call detail, or other relevant and verifiable information. The customer shall not modify its reported PIU factor to account for VoIP-PSTN traffic.

(4) After the Telephone Company verifies the OPVU and TPVU provided by the customer the Telephone Company will apply the OPVU and TPVU factors to the associated intrastate access MOU as indicated in Sections (D) and/or (E) below.

In the event that the Telephone Company can not verify the customer’s

OPVU and/or TPVU, the Telephone Company will request additional information to support the OPVU and/or TPVU, during this time no changes will be made to the existing OPVU and /or TPVU. The customer shall supply the requested additional information within 15 days of the Telephone

Company’s request or no changes will be made to the existing OPVU and/or

TPVU. If after review of the additional information, the customer and

Telephone Company establish a revised and mutually agreed upon OPVU and/or TPVU factor, the Telephone Company will begin using the new factor with the next bill period.

Company allow an OPVU or TPVU factor greater than the applicable State percentage as identified in Paragraph 963 of the FCC Order.

(D) Initial OPVU and TPVU Factor

In calculating the initial OPVU and TPVU factor(s), the Telephone Company will take the factor(s) provided by the customer into account retroactively to January 1,

2012, provided that the customer provides the factor(s) and supporting documentation, as specified in subsection (C) above to the Telephone Company no later than 15 days after the effective date of this tariff. If the customer does not furnish the Telephone Company with an OPVU and/or TPVU factor pursuant to the preceding subsection (C), the initial factor will be zero.

(E) OPVU and TPVU Factor Updates

The customer may update the OPVU and/or TPVU factor(s) semi-annually using the method set forth in subsection (C), above. If the customer chooses to submit such updates, it shall forward to the Telephone Company, no later than 15 days after the first day of January and/or July of each year, a revised OPVU and/or TPVU factor and supporting documentation based on data for the prior three months, ending the last day of December and/or June, respectively. Once verified by the Telephone

3.3 OBLIGATIONS OF THE COMPANY

The Company has certain obligations pertaining only to the provision of Switched Access

Service. These obligations are as follows:

3.3.1 Network Management

The Company will administer its network to provide acceptable service levels to all telecommunications users of the Company's network services. Generally, service levels are considered acceptable only when both End Users and Customers are able to establish connections with little or no delay encountered within the Company's network. The Company maintains the right to apply protective controls, i.e., those actions, such as call gapping, which selectively cancel the completion of any traffic carried over its network, including that associated with a Customer's Switched Access

Service. Generally, such protective measures would only be taken as a result of occurrences such as a failure or overload of Company or customer facilities, natural disasters, mass calling or national security demands.

May, August, and November). No prorating or backbilling will be done based on the report. If the customer does not supply the report, the company will assume the percentages to be the same as those provided in the last quarterly report. For those cases in which a quarterly report has never been received from the customer, the company will assume the percentages to be the same as those provided in the order for service.

F. The company shall use reasonable efforts to provide accurate and complete lists.

The company makes no warranties, expressed or implied, as to the accuracy or completeness of these lists.

8.4.3 Rate Regulations

A. Service Establishment Charges apply for the initial establishment of BNA service on a manual basis, for the initial establishment of BNA service on a mechanized basis and for establishment of a master BNA list for a customer.

B. A charge applies for each request for BNA information for a telephone number or

DTN number on a manual basis. A charge applies for each message processed to supply BNA information on a mechanized basis.

The company will keep a count of the requests and of the messages processed.

The company will bill the customer in accordance with these counts whether or not the company was able to provide BNA information for all request and messages.

C. Where the recorded message detail is sufficient to determine a message is an intrastate message, the rates set forth in the rate schedule following will apply to each such message.

Usage for which the recorded message detail is insufficient to determine jurisdiction will be prorated by the company between interstate and intrastate.

The percentages provided in the reports as set forth in 8.4.2(E) preceding will serve as the basis for prorating the charges. The intrastate charges are determined as follows: For usage sensitive (i.e., requests or messages processed) chargeable rate elements, multiply the intrastate percent times actual use times the stated tariff rate.

D. When a customer cancels an order for BNA service after the order date, the service establishment charge applies.

8.5 MEET POINT BILLING

VSCC Tariff No. 3

Original Page No. 100

In cases where the Customer chooses to originate and/or terminate its traffic with the Company which then is either sent for termination to another Local Exchange Carrier’s (LEC) network or is handed to the Company by a LEC for Company termination, Meet Point Billing (MPB) will apply. MPB means that both the Company and the other LEC will issue bills to the Customer for services rendered per terms of either Parties applicable tariffs or other arrangements or, more commonly, a mulitple-bill, multiple tariff arrangement.

It is the obligation of the interconnected LEC, in the instances where traffic is originated via a

Company Customer and switched and transported by the Company to interconnected LECs, to contractually arrange with the Company for presentation of records necessary for billing of a

Customer's traffic. In the absence of such an arrangement, the Company assumes that interconnected LECs have sufficient information to bill relevant Customer's per their standard billing formats and governing documents.

With this multiple-bill, multiple tariff and meet point connection, both the Company and the other

LEC will prepare its own bill and bill charges in accordance with its own tariff. Other arrangements may be made that are mutually agreeable to both the Company and the Customer.

Mileage sensitive charges will be proportionately billed in accordance with industry standards.

8.6 CHARGEABLE OPTIONAL FEATURES

800 Database Access Service is provided to all customers in conjunction with switched access service. When a 1+800+NXX-XXXX call is originated by an end user, the Company will utilize the SS7 network to query an 800 database to identify the Customer to whom the call will be delivered, and to provide vertical features based on the dialed digits. The call will then be routed to the identified Customer over switched access.

A Basic or Vertical Feature Query charge is assessed for each query launched to the 800 database.

The Basic Query provides for the identification of the customer to whom the call will be delivered and includes area of service routing which allows routing of 800 calls by telephone companies to different interexchange carriers based on the Local Access Transport Area (LATA) in which the call originates. The Vertical Feature Query provides the same customer identification function in addition to vertical features which may include: (1) call validation, ensuring that call originates from subscribed service areas; (2) POTS translation of 800 numbers;

(3) alternate POTS translation, which allows subscribers to vary the routing of 800 calls based on factors such as time of day, place of origin of the call, etc.; (4) multiple carrier routing, which allows subscribers to route to different carriers based on factors similar to those in (3).
