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

     1.   On March 16, 2001, RCN Telecom Services of 
Philadelphia, Inc. (``RCN'') filed a complaint in the captioned 
matter against PECO Energy Company (``PECO'') alleging that 
PECO's pole attachment rate was unjust and unreasonable.1  On May 
4, 2001, RCN amended the Complaint to add InfraSource 
Incorporated as a defendant and to include allegations that the 
defendants' make-ready charges were unjust and unreasonable.2  On 
December 18, 2002, the Enforcement Bureau bifurcated the rate 
issues from the make-ready issues and resolved the rate issues in 
the Phase I Order.3  On January 17, 2004, PECO petitioned for 
reconsideration of the Phase I Order.4 
     2.   On January 29, 2004, PECO requested that the Commission 
deem ``withdrawn with prejudice all claims, as to all parties, 
that are currently pending and unresolved arising out of PECO's 
Request for Reconsideration of the Commission's Phase I Order in 
the above-captioned case.'' 5  The Motion further states that 
``all matters in this docket have now been resolved by amicable 
resolution between the parties.''6  RCN does not oppose the 
Motion.7
     3.   We are satisfied that allowing withdrawal of the 
Petition for Reconsideration will serve the public interest by 
promoting the private resolution of disputes and by eliminating 
the need for further litigation and the expenditure of further 
time and resources of the parties and this Commission.
     4.   Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED, pursuant to sections 1, 
4(i), 4(j), and 224 of the Communications Act of 1934, as 
amended, 47 U.S.C.  151, 154(i), 154(j), 224, and the authority 
delegated in sections 0.111 and 0.311 of the Commission's rules, 
47 C.F.R.  0.111 and 0.311, that the Motion to Withdraw Request 
for Reconsideration IS GRANTED and that all claims in the above-
captioned proceeding ARE DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.
