• On October 24, 2011, several competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs) petitioned the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) to arbitrate an interconnection dispute with AT&T Michigan. The CLECs include ACD Telecom, Inc., Arialink Telecom LLC, CynergyComm.Net, Inc., DayStarr LLC, Lucre, Inc., Osirus Communications, Inc., and TelNet Worldwide, Inc. The CLECs allege AT&T notified them in September 2010 that it would be terminating their existing interconnection agreements (ICAs), but would use a Commission-approved ICA between AT&T and BCR Network Services, Inc. d/b/a The Data Warehouse as a negotiation template for new agreements. The CLECs assert that AT&T is refusing to agree to reasonable terms concerning, among other topics, required escrow payments for disputed traffic, the treatment of interconnection facilities, reciprocal compensation rates, and direct IP-to-IP interconnection. As to the last issue, the CLECs stated that due to “the importance of IP to IP interconnection … the Commission should ensure that the CLECs have the right to incorporate IP to IP interconnection provisions into the Agreement.” Docket No. U-16906.
