                              ORDER


       Adopted:  March 26, 2002         Released:  March 27, 2002

By the Chief, Market Disputes Resolution Division, Enforcement 
Bureau:

On January 12, 2001, pursuant to section 1.716 of the Commission 
rules,1 AT&T Corp. (``AT&T'') filed informal complaints against 
each of the defendants in the above-captioned matters.  Between 
March 14, 2001 and March 19, 2001, each of the defendants filed a 
report pursuant to section 1.717 of the Commission's rules2 
denying the allegations in AT&T's informal complaints.  Pursuant 
to section 1.718 of the Commission's rules,3 AT&T was required to 
convert these informal complaints into formal complaints between 
September 14, 2001 and September 24, 2001 to ensure that the 
formal complaints related back to the January 12, 2001 filing 
date of the informal complaints.  On September 14, 2001, October 
4, 2001, October 18, 2001, November 2, 2001, November 15, 2001, 
November 30, 2001, December 18, 2001, January 9, 2002, January 
29, 2002, February 15, 2002, February 27, 2002, and March 12, 
2002, the Market Disputes Resolution Division (``MDRD'') granted 
AT&T's consent motions for additional time to convert the 
informal complaints under rule 1.718, allowing AT&T until March 
29, 2002, to file the formal complaints against the defendants.4  
MDRD granted these motions because the parties were actively 
engaged in promising settlement negotiations, and were 
participating in good faith in mediation sessions supervised by 
MDRD staff.

Since filing its informal complaints, AT&T has reached settlement 
agreements with defendants Intermedia and Winstar.  As a 
consequence, all outstanding issues with these defendants have 
been resolved and the matters at issue have been satisfied.  
Accordingly, AT&T and these named defendants request that the 
informal complaints relating to them be closed.5

In addition, since filing its informal complaints, AT&T also has 
reached settlement agreements with CTC Exchange, Consolidated, 
and XIT.  As a result, the parties are in the process of 
completing and/or filing the necessary paperwork relating to 
their agreements.  AT&T and CTC Telcom also are in the process of 
negotiating a settlement agreement, and are hopeful that a 
settlement can be finalized in the near future.  In light of the 
parties' continuing efforts to settle these matters, on March 26, 
2002, AT&T filed a Consent Motion Resolving Certain Informal 
Complaints and Requesting An Additional Extension of Time In 
Which To Convert Informal Complaints To Formal Complaints and 
Toll Limitations Period.6  AT&T requests a waiver of section 
1.718 of the Commission's rules and an additional extension of 
time until April 12, 2002, to convert the informal complaints 
against the defendants into formal complaints, if necessary.  
Each of these named defendants have consented to AT&T's request.7

We are satisfied that granting AT&T's motion will serve the 
public interest by promoting the private resolution of disputes 
and by postponing the need for further litigation and expenditure 
of further time and resources of the parties and of this 
Commission until such time as may actually be necessary.

Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED, pursuant to sections 4(i), 4(j), and 
208 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C.  
154(i), 154(j), and 208, and sections 1.3 and 1.718 of the 
Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R.  1.3, 1.718, and the authority 
delegated in sections 0.111 and 0.311 of the Commission's rules, 
47 C.F.R.  0.111, 0.311, that the Consent Motion of AT&T Corp. 
Resolving Certain Informal Complaints and Requesting An 
Additional Extension of Time in Which to Convert Other Informal 
Complaints to Formal Complaints and Toll Limitations Period IS 
GRANTED.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the informal complaints against 
Intermedia, File No. EB-01-MDIC-0010 and Winstar, File No. EB-01-
MDIC-0013, are hereby DISMISSED. 

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, unless otherwise extended by order, 
the deadlines that would otherwise apply under section 1.718 of 
our rules, 47 C.F.R.  1.718, or under our previous orders in 
this proceeding, are hereby waived, and the dates on which AT&T 
must convert the remaining informal complaints against CT 
Communications, Inc., et al., CTC Telcom, Inc., Consolidated 
Communications, Inc., and XIT Telecommunications and Technology, 
Inc., into formal complaints pursuant to section 1.718 of our 
rules, 47 C.F.R.  1.718, are extended to April 12, 2002.
