• On August 29, 2012, West Virginia Public Service Commission (WVPSC) Staff submitted a recommended decision urging the WVPSC to dismiss a challenge by AT&T Communications of West Virginia and Verizon Communications to the YMax Communications Corp. intrastate switched access tariff revisions. YMax had informed Staff that it intends to withdraw its tariff and “re-file its rates when it has had time to address concerns raised by AT&T and Verizon.” YMax filed its proposed tariff revisions on May 25, 2012, and requested an effective date of June 24, 2012, but AT&T filed a petition to intervene and protest to tariff on June 11, 2012. AT&T argued that YMax’s rate revisions would allow it to charge interexchange carriers for access functions it did not provide, mirroring similar complaints AT&T has filed against YMax’s proposed tariff revisions in other states, including Missouri, New Mexico, Kentucky, Alabama, Maryland and Ohio. On June 22, 2012, the WVPSC issued an order suspending the revisions to YMax’s tariff for 120 days and referred the matter to an administrative law judge. Docket No. 12-0720-T-T.
