SECTION 92-G
De-tariffing of non-basic retail services
Public Service (PBS) CHAPTER 48, ARTICLE 5
§ 92-g. De-tariffing of non-basic retail services. 1. Notwithstanding
any other provision of this chapter, or any regulation or order issued
by the commission pursuant to this chapter, and excluding "regulated
basic services" as defined in paragraph (a) of subdivision two of
section ninety-two of this article on and after the effective date of
this section, a telephone corporation furnishing any services that would
otherwise be subject to the rate schedule requirements in section
ninety-two of this article may post on its website the rates, terms and
conditions of any retail service it offers, renders or furnishes within
the state. Section ninety-two of this article shall not apply to any
service so posted, and such telephone corporation shall not be required
to file with the commission or obtain approval of any tariff or schedule
for such service. Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect
the authority of the commission under section ninety-seven of this
article.

2. Any tariff or schedule for retail services filed by a telephone
corporation prior to the effective date of this section may be withdrawn
at any time after such date upon thirty days notice to the commission,
but shall remain in effect until such withdrawal.

3. Nothing in this section shall affect the authority of the
commission over switched access or wholesale services.

4. A telephone corporation shall annually file a copy of the customer
service guide or other listing of terms and conditions with the
commission. A telephone corporation shall provide a copy of such
customer service guide or other listing of terms and conditions to any
requesting person. The commission may order additional requirements as
they see fit for the customer service guide. The term "customer service
guide" and "other listing of terms and conditions" when used in this
section shall include but not be limited to a list of non-basic services
with a description and rate of sale of such services by a telephone
corporation.

5. At least thirty days prior to an increase in rate for a non-basic
service, a telephone corporation shall notify any affected person that
such person may opt out of such non-basic service at any time within the
thirty days prior to the increase becoming effective.
