Section 3

Original Sheet 1

The determination as to whether customer service should be classified as business or residence is based mainly on the character of use to be made of the service. Although, in general, business rates apply at business locations and residence rates apply at residence locations, residence service will not be furnished at business locations except as provided in below.

2 In general, business rates apply whenever the use of the service is primarily or substantially of a business, professional, institutional or otherwise occupational nature, where the service is located on a premises whose main use is nonresidential. Examples of locations at which business rates apply are:

A. At offices, stores, factories, mines, and all other places of a strictly business nature.

B. At houses or apartments where rooms are rented or boarders are taken or both, and in halls and offices of hotels and apartment houses. However, when it is clearly evident that the service located in the customer's house or in an owner's, manager's or occupant's private rooms or apartment is to be used primarily for the domestic purposes of the customer, then residence rates apply.

C. At quarters occupied by clubs and fraternal societies, public, private, or parochial schools, hospitals, libraries and other institutions, and in churches. However, at locations, such as fraternity houses where members of the organization lodge, or lodge and board within the building, residence rates apply.

D. At tool houses or construction offices of contractors engaged in the reconditioning or remodeling of any structure whether the structure is to be used for business or residence purposes upon completion of the work.

E. At residence locations in the same building as the customer's business establishment or at residence locations adjacent to the subscriber's place of business when it is not evident that the telephone located in the residence is to be employed primarily for residence use.

F. At all other locations where the subscriber's primary use of the service is for business purposes.

Original Sheet 2 located on a premises whose main use is residential and provided that service is not used substantially for business purposes. Examples of locations of which residence rates apply are:

A. At private residences.

B. At private apartments in hotels, boarding houses, college dormitories, and hospitals when separate main station service is provided in such apartments and where the use of the service is confined to the domestic use of the customer.

C. At the place of residence of a clergyman, physician, nurse, dentist, veterinary surgeon or other medical practitioner or Christian Science practitioner. Abbreviated titles such as "Dr.", "Rev.", "Judge", "Professor", are not considered business designations.

D. In a private stable or garage when it is strictly a part of the customer's domestic establishment. Also, residence extensions are permitted in barns if the use of the service for any business purpose is only incidental. Separate exchange service or extension station service furnished at commercial farm locations for business use are classified as and charged for as business service.

E. Residential secretarial lines may be terminated in telephone answering facilities at telephone answering bureaus.

4. Changes from business service to residence service are made only in the event of a change in the customer's arrangements which would entitle him to a residence classification of his service, as specified in c. above.

A change of service classification from business to residence requires a number change.

When it is determined that a customer with residence service is using that service in such manner that it should be classified and charged for as business service under the provisions of b. above, the Company may disconnect the customer's service in the event he refuses to permit his service to be classified as business service and to pay the business rate.

GENERAL

1. The excess mileage charges specified herein shall be applied in connection with all circuits extending beyond the initial rate area and are in addition to the base rates specified on the Local

Exchange Tariff sheets for each exchange, as shown in Part I of this tariff and are in addition to any applicable monthly rates or any applicable installation charges.

2. When it is necessary to provide new construction in connection with the furnishing of any circuits to which excess mileage charges apply, such construction shall be provided under the regulations governing "Construction Charges" as shown in Section 8 of this General Exchange

Tariff.

3. Excess mileage and the regulations and charges applicable to it fall into the general classification: Additional Station Mileage.

4. The terms used in referring to excess mileage charges, such as "initial rate area," and "base rate area" are somewhat confusing. A chart showing the boundaries of these areas has been prepared. It is known as Exhibit 1-A and will be found directly following this section. A study of this chart will prove very helpful.

ADDITIONAL STATION MILEAGE

1. Additional Station mileage applies to all extension station circuits, private branch exchange station circuits, common talk circuits, miscellaneous equipment circuits, or circuits located outside the initial rate area but within the base rate area. For the purpose of this tariff, the initial rate area shall be defined as follows: a. Apartment houses, dwelling houses, and rooming houses. The immediate apartment, suite of rooms, or premises of a subscriber in which the main station is located shall be considered as the initial rate area.

Section 6

When a subscriber occupies an entire building or group of buildings, the building in which the main station or switchboard is located shall be considered the initial rate area, except as hereinafter qualified.

Section 6

Original Sheet 3 d. In the case of subscribers having departments, subdivisions, or individuals with separate identities and separate telephone service listed in their names, the immediate suite of offices occupied by each such department, subdivision or individual shall be considered as the initial rate area of their service.

2. Additional Station mileage shall be computed by airline measurement from the nearest point on the initial rate area to the point of location of the extension station service, private branch exchange station service, or miscellaneous circuit to which the mileage charge is to be applied.

3. The central office boundaries of a multi-office exchange shall be absolute as concerns main station service. In cases where the central office boundary follows a street or highway, the center of such street or highway shall be considered as the boundary.

4. In cases where extension stations, private branch exchange stations, or miscellaneous circuits are desired, outside the initial rate area of a subscriber's location and terminating outside the base rate area of the exchange with which the subscriber is connected, the excess mileage charge is computed by applying the charge for additional station mileage from the initial rate area boundary to the termination of the circuit. If more than one station is connected to a circuit and one or more of the stations are located outside the initial rate area, the excess mileage charge shall be based on the airline measurement from the most distant station to the initial rate area.

TELECOMMUNICATIONS SERVICE PRIORITY (TSP) SYSTEM

11.1 Description of the Service

11.1.1 The TSP system is a service that provides for the priority pro visioning and/or restoration of National Security Emergency Preparedness (NSEP) Telecommunications services. The TSP system applies only to NSEP services, includes all services of the

Telephone Company and provides the Telephone Company with a guide to the sequence in which services are to be provisioned and/or restored.

11.1.2 All facilities that can be identified by a unique circuit identifier, can be provisioned for

TSP service by the Telephone Company.

11.1.3 The minimum period for restoration priority service is one month.

11.1.4 The rates and charges associated with a customer subscribing to TSP service are as specified in Section 11.8.1 following.

11.2 Obtaining TSP Service

11.2.1 The Executive Office of the President is empowered with the authority to receive, evaluate and process requests for NSEP TSP services. The executive Office of the

President, through the TSP Program office as its administrative branch, makes the priority level assignments and issues the TSP authorization code reflecting the priority assignment associated with a request. The customer initiates the request for TSP service from the TSP Program office through an agency of the federal government. The customer provides the TSP authorization code, in addition to all the other details necessary to complete the order and submits to the Telephone Company for appropriate action.

TELECOMMUNICATIONS SERVICE PRIORITY (TSP) SYSTEM

11.2 Obtaining TSP Service (Cont'd)

11.2.2 The TSP authorization code, assigned on a per service basis, consists of a 12-character field, a nine-character control ID followed by a dash and a two-character field specifying

Section 11

Original Sheet 2 the priority level assignment. Its structure is as follows:

TSPxxxxxn-yy

The "x"s contain a sequence number unique to each TSP authorization code and the "n" is a one character alphanumeric check digit. The first "y" is the provisioning priority level assignment. The second "y" is the restoration priority level assignment.

11.3.1 If the customer requires service within a shorter time interval than the Telephone

Company can provide, and the requested service qualifies for NSEP, the customer may elect to invoke NSEP treatment and obtain the appropriate provisioning priority assignment from the TSP Program office. Acceptable assignment code values are: E,

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 0.

11.3.2 The assignment of the value "E" implies the service has the most critical provisioning requirements and the Telephone Company will treat accordingly. The Telephone

Company will take immediate action to provide the requested service at the earliest possible date. Rates and charges associated with "E" provisioning are as specified in the General Exchange Tariff, Section 9.

11.3.3 The assignment values of 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 are treated as essential service priorities and the Company will adjust its available resources to meet the customer's requested due date. Rates and charges associated with invoking this priority treatment are specified in the General Exchange Tariff, Section 9. The value "0" implies no provisioning priority.

Section 11

Original Sheet 3

11.4.1 By obtaining a TSP authorization code for restoration priority, the service is classified as being among the nation's most important NSEP telecommunication services. The

Company will restore these services before service without restoration priority assignments in the order of priority assignments. Acceptable values are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or

0 with the value "1" being the highest priority.

11.4.2 When the Company recognizes a TSP as being out of service, unusable or upon receipt of a trouble report, available resources will be dispatched to restore the service as quickly as practicable. A priority value of 1, 2 or 3 requires dispatch outside normal business hours if necessary to restore the service. A priority value of 4 or 5 only requires dispatch outside of normal business hours if the next business day is more than 24 hours away. If the value "0" has been assigned, then no restoration priority is applicable to this service.

11.5 General Customer Obligations

11.5.1 In all instances, the customer is responsible for obtaining the appropriate TSP authorization code and providing that code to the Telephone Company. The code may be submitted verbally and the Telephone Company will accept such verbal notification, however, the customer must submit written confirmation to the Telephone Company within two working days. If written confirmation is not received within two working days, all applicable rates and charges become immediately due and payable and the requested TSP priority is revoked.

11.5.2 The customer for TSP service must be the same customer for the General Exchange,

Private Line or Digital Area Service with which it is associated.

11.5.3 All points of a multipoint service configuration must have the same restoration priority assignment and must satisfy the requirements of that assignment.

Such information includes: the customer's name, telephone number and mailing address, the TSP authorization code and the circuit or service ID number associated with the TSP service.

11.5.5 When NSEP treatment is invoked, the Telephone Company will first attempt to notify the customer. If the Telephone Company is not able to notify the customer, then the customer recognizes that quoting charges and obtaining permission beforehand will cause unnecessary delays and, as a result, grants the Telephone Company the right to quote charges after provisioning of the service.

11.5.6 The customer must request and justify revalidation of all priority level assignments at least every three years.

11.6 General Company Obligations

11.6.1 The Telephone Company will provision and/or restore service having TSP authorization codes before other services, with the exception of official Company services necessary for provisioning and/or restoring the services of the carrier.

11.6.2 The Telephone Company will work TSP services in the order of their priority level assignments. The priority sequence is as follows:

- Restore TSP services assigned restoration priority 1

- Provision Emergency (E) TSP services

- Restore TSP services assigned restoration priority 2, 3, 4 or 5.

- Provision TSP services assigned provisioning priority 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5.

TERM DISCOUNT PLAN

GENERAL

The Term Discount plan only applies to Groups of 100 DID Numbers, as specified in Section 7 of this tariff. The amount of the discount differs based on the length of the service commitment period selected by the customer. Discounts for the Term Discount plan are only applied to service provided to a customer

Section 18

Original Sheet 1 within the same exchange and by the same telephone company.

REGULATIONS

Groups of 100 DID Numbers may be ordered at the customer's option on a monthly rate basis or for Term

Discount periods of 36 months (3 years), 60 months (5 years), or 120 months (10 years).

The minimum service period for all Term Discount plans is twelve months. The customer must specify the length of the service commitment period at the time the service is ordered.

For customers that subscribe to the Term Discount plan for 36, 60, or 120 months, the Term Discount rates as specified in Section 7 of this tariff will be frozen from Company initiated increases, for the entire discount period at the rates in effect at the beginning of the Term Discount period.

If a Term Discount rate decrease occurs during the term of an existing Term Discount plan, the decreased rate will be applied automatically to the remainder of the current Term Discount period.

At the end of the Term Discount period, the customer may convert to month-to-month service or subscribe to a new Term Discount Plan. If the customer does not make a choice by the end of the discount period, the rates will automatically convert to month-to-month service rates.

To be included in a Term Discount plan, all eligible rate elements must be ordered for the same commitment term (i.e., all 36 months, all 60 months, or all 120 months) and with the same service date.

TERM DISCOUNT PLAN (continued)

UPGRADES IN TERM DISCOUNTS

Services provided under monthly rates or Term Discount rates may be upgraded to a Term Discount plan at any time without incurring nonrecurring charges or discontinuance charges for the existing group(s) of

100 DID numbers. The new Term Discount plan must meet or exceed the service term of the plan being upgraded. For example, a group of 100 DID Numbers with a 36-month commitment period may be upgraded to a new 36-month, 60-month, or 120-month service period. The monthly rates will be those that are in effect at the time the service is upgraded. A new minimum service period applies to all service that is upgraded.

Section 18

DISCONTINUANCE OF SERVICE

If the customer chooses to disconnect all or a portion of the service prior to the expiration of the Term

Discount period, discontinuance charges will apply to the portion of the service being discontinued.

Should the customer choose to discontinue a Term Discount plan prior to the completion of the minimum service period, discontinuance charges will apply. Discontinuance charges equal to one-hundred percent of the total undiscounted monthly rates, less any amounts previously paid, will apply for the minimum service period.

Additionally, discontinuance charges of fifty percent of the total undiscounted monthly charges will apply to the remaining portion of the discount service term.

Should the customer choose to discontinue service ordered under a Term Discount plan after the minimum service period but before the completion of the discount period, discontinuance charges will apply. Discontinuance charges of fifty percent of the total undiscounted monthly charges will apply to the remaining portion of the discount period. For example, a customer has a Group of 100 DID numbers which it chooses to discontinue after 33 months into a 60-month service term. The discontinuance charge would be 0.50 times 27 months times the undiscounted monthly rate for that service.

This system utilizes a trunk and special line equipments in the central office. The line equipments are jumpered through a customer's exchange service line equipment; separate instruments at, or circuits to the customer's location are not required. The system is activated when a call is placed to the emergency number, activating the emergency reporting trunk which rings the stations connected to the emergency service line. The emergency stations will ring and continue to ring until the calling party hangs up.

A push button installed on the instrument at the assigned location is used to start the emergency siren. If the telephone at the assigned emergency location is in use a tone is automatically placed on the line to alert the station user that an emergency call has been placed. The station user hangs up, terminating the call, and lifts the receiver to join the emergency circuit. The siren can be activated only when the fire trunk has been activated. Provision has been made to serve 10 stations. The services assigned must be provided on a terminal per station basis.

2. Enhanced Call Waiting - a distinctive tone informs the telephone user that another call has been placed to his/her line. By briefly depressing the hookswitch, the user will be connected to the second caller while holding the first; subsequent depressions of the hookswitch will allow the user to alternate between callers.

Enhanced Call Waiting also permits the customer to inhibit the operation of Call Waiting for one call. Call

Waiting is automatically restored to the customer's line upon a disconnect.

A customer with Caller ID on Call Waiting may also receive name and number information on a call that is waiting. (The customer must have the appropriate CPE.)

Three Way Calling/Call Forwarding - permits regular three-way calling with the ability of the party that originates the three-way call to drop off of the call. This feature allows the subscriber to transfer incoming calls to any subscriber dialable location. The subscriber of the Three Way Calling/Call Forwarding feature is responsible for any applicable toll charges for calls originating from the subscriber's location to the called party location where the call is transferred. Chargeable time on the connection from the subscriber location to the transferred location ends when the connection is terminated by either of the two remaining parties on the call.

4. Call Forwarding - permits transfer of all incoming calls automatically to any dialable number. The number can be selected by the customer each time Call Forwarding is activated. If the alternate location is not a free call, the customer will be billed for each call forwarded.

5. Call Forwarding Busy - permits call to automatically be transferred to a predetermined alternate number whenever the primary number is busy. The alternate number can be any dialable number. If the alternate location is not a free call, the customer will be billed for each call diverted.

Original Sheet 14

A. Standard Features and Functions

Because of CPE selected by the customer or the customer's agent, some of the features offered may function differently, may not be available or may be required to be offered via an access code. The standard features and functions support two terminals per BRS.

A CA is the position(s) on a terminal to which numbers are assigned. A Directory

Number (DN) can be shared by more than one ISDN terminal. The quantity and/or position of CAs for the Primary Directory Number (PDN), Secondary Directory Numbers

(SDN), and Shared Call Appearances (SCA) are limited by the standard configuration developed for the CPE.

Caller Identification Blocking - Per Call

This feature enables a customer to control the disclosure of his/her name and/or DN to a customer of Caller Identification (where technically feasible) by temporarily changing the public/private status indicator of the DN. A customer must dial a code before each call to change the indicator from public to private. "Public status" allows delivery of the name and/or DN. "Private status" prevents delivery of the name and/or DN. Per Call

Blocking is provided at no charge.

This feature displays the call identification information and the calling party's

DN (including nonpublished and nonlisted directory numbers) prior to the call being answered. Calling party's name may not be available. Callers have the ability to inhibit the display of calling party information to the terminating number. ICLID is provided to the PDN and to any associated SDNs. ICLID cannot just display to the PDN when the number is shared.

This a user who is originating a call with information about the called party and the facility or destination.

Hunting

Hunting is available for circuit-switched data on PDNs.

Hunting Service will affect the operation or availability of some other optional features on the hunting B-channel. The features most often affected include forms of Call

Forwarding, Speed Calling and others, depending on the Service Configuration. Call

Forwarding features will override the Hunting Services.

Hunting is done sequentially by terminal within the group. One or two B-channels are associated with each terminal in the group. One begin-hunt telephone number must be assigned to the first terminal within a Regular or Circular group of sequentially ordered terminals that form a Multiline Hunt Group (MLHG). Telephone numbers may be assigned, in any sequence, to terminals within a MLHG.

Multiline Hunt Service provides a hunting sequence that attempts to complete a call to the first available B-channel associated with the lead telephone number of the group.

Busy tone is not sent to the caller unless all remaining B-channels in the hunt group list have been found busy. The call will be completed to the first available B-channel.

MLHGs can be assigned two types of telephone numbers; begin-hunt and nonhunting telephone numbers. The begin-hunt telephone number has the multiline hunt feature and, when called, starts the hunting sequence associated with the hunt group. An

MLHG must have at least one begin-hunt telephone number but can have more than one per terminal in the group. Non-hunting telephone numbers can be assigned to terminals within a MLHG; these terminals do not have the multiline hunt feature.

Incoming calls are terminated directly to the individual terminals.

• Regular hunting starts when a begin-hunt telephone number is called in a

MLHG. Hunting proceeds in ascending order through each subsequent terminal in the group until an idle terminal is reached or the last (highest numbered) terminal in the group is reached.

• Circular hunting is provided optionally with regular hunting groups. Circular hunting occurs in these groups when the hunt for an idle terminal commences beyond the first terminal in the hunt group and finds all higher numbered terminals busy, the hunt returns to the first terminal in the group. The hunt ends with the terminal number preceding the terminal where the hunt in the group initially began.

This feature allows all terminals within a MLHG to be tested for busy regardless of the point of entry into the group before returning busy tone.

• Distribution hunting is a hunting arrangement that provides uniform termination call assignment (distribution) to members of a MLHG. UCD hunting does not include queuing or announcements.

The rates and charges for hunting are found in the Company's General Exchange Tariff,

This feature can either be assigned to the user on an active basis or it can be assigned to a feature button that can be activated or deactivated by the user.

If the feature is assigned to a feature button, the forward-to DN can be changed by dialing an access code and programming the new forward-to DN.

Call Forwarding Don't Answer For Circuit-Switched Data

This feature permits all circuit-switched data calls attempting to terminate to an idle PDN to ring a specified number of seconds prior to being forwarded to a previously specified DN. This feature can either be assigned to the user on an active basis or it can be assigned to a feature button that can be activated or deactivated by the user. If the feature is assigned to a feature button, the forward to DN can be changed by dialing an access code and programming the new forward-to DN.
