Background

Allegiance, which is currently operating under bankruptcy protection, provides telecommunications products and services to small and medium-sized business customers, large businesses, governmental entities, wholesale customers, and other institutional users. Allegiance provides services primarily through the use of its own switches and routing equipment, leased transport facilities, fiber optic networks, and local loops obtained from incumbent LECs. Applicants state that Allegiance operates in 36 metropolitan areas, 31 of which are outside the 14-state region in which Qwest operates as an incumbent LEC and include the territories of each of the other regional Bell Operating Companies (RBOCs). Applicants claim that nearly 90 percent of Allegiance’s revenues come from these out-of-region operations. Qwest, an incumbent LEC, provides voice, video and data services throughout the United States, with approximately 16.5 million residential and business access lines in its core 14-state local service territory.
