Title 3 . Commerce, Community, and Economic Development
Chapter 52 . Telecommunications
Section 336. Presubscription of public telephones

3 AAC 52.336. Presubscription of public telephones

(a) A public telephone is subject to presubscription. The owner of premises on which a public telephone is located has the right to presubscribe that telephone.

(b) If a local exchange telephone utility receives a bona fide request to provide service to public telephones on a presubscribed basis in an exchange where equal access is being provided at the time of the request, that utility shall implement public telephone presubscription within 30 days after receipt of the request. Upon implementation of public telephone presubscription, the routing of a public telephone access line will remain unchanged until the local exchange telephone utility receives a written letter of authorization signed by the owner of premises changing presubscription for that public telephone to another certificated interexchange carrier.

(c) Within 30 days of receipt of a request under (b) of this section, the local exchange telephone utility shall mail a notice to each owner of premises in its service area. The notice must inform each owner of premises that it may presubscribe the public telephones on its premises to the interexchange carrier of its choice. The notice must also list available interexchange carriers. The local exchange telephone utility shall provide each interexchange carrier with a complete list of the names and addresses to which the notice is mailed.

(d) If a local exchange telephone utility receives a bona fide request under 3 AAC 52.333(c) , the local exchange telephone utility shall conduct presubscription balloting for public telephones in coordination with and on the same schedule as balloting for other phones, as required by 3 AAC 52.333(c) . However, the interexchange carrier that made a bona fide request for equal access may delay provision of service to public telephones, in which case (b) of this section will apply. Technical difficulties associated with service to public telephones may not delay provision of 2-PIC dialing to other phones in accordance with 3 AAC 52.333(c) .

(e) Each local exchange telephone utility shall affix on the face of each public telephone, in addition to any other required information, the name of the presubscribed interexchange carrier.

(f) Unless the context indicates otherwise, in this section

(1) "owner of premises" means the owner of premises on which a public telephone is located or, for leased premises, the lessee, unless otherwise provided in the lease;

(2) "public telephone" means a public or semi-public pay telephone.
