TABLE III - ACCESS LINES IN SERVICE BY CUSTOMER
Table III requires the annual reporting of switched and special access line statistics by state as of December 31 of the calendar year covered by the report.
Report in Table III columns (fc) through (fi) only those access lines connecting end users with their end offices for switched services.
Include 800 and 800-like access lines, resold telephone exchange service lines, and employee concession lines but do NOT include official/company circuits in the access line counts. Provide a footnote if this has been done differently in the past. Analog access lines should be reported as 4 kHz equivalents. ISDN and other digital access lines should be reported as 64 kbps equivalents. A fully equipped DS‑1 line, for example, corresponds to 24 64 kbps equivalents.
Include footnotes in the Footnote Table liberally, especially where the reporting company perceives any ambiguities in the data provided, where procedures or internal sources associated with data preparation have changed (including data filed in compliance with revised definitions), or where required data are available only in part or on an estimated basis.
Any row/column data entry which contains UNE data must be accompanied by an explanatory footnote identifying the types of UNEs (e.g., “UNE-P”) that are included.
Each row represents a state, district or territory in which the reporting company has access lines. Include only those rows with data to be reported, but complete every item in those rows. Include a row for total company data, even if there is only one state row. See the State Row Numbers and Codes Reference Table for assigned row numbers and codes and for the correct order in which the rows shall appear.
Each column represents a category of switched or special access lines.
(fa) State or Territory - The name of one of the fifty U.S. states or one of the following: District of Columbia, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, or Total.
(fb) State or Territory Code - The two-letter Postal Abbreviation for the state or territory. Use "MC" for Northern Mariana Islands and "TO" for Total Company.
Business Switched Access Lines - Total voice-grade equivalent analog or digital switched access lines to business customers.
(fc) Single Line Business Switched Access Lines ‑ Includes single line business access lines subject to the single line business interstate end user common line charge, pursuant to Section 69.104(h), excluding company official and payphone lines. Payphone lines are to be reported in column (fe) - Multiline Business Switched Access Lines - Payphone Lines. The ratio of single line business access lines to total business access lines, as calculated from the data reported in Table III (i.e., column (fc) divided by the sum of columns (fc), (fd), and (fe)), should be consistent with the same ratio as calculated from the data reported in ARMIS Report 43-01, Table II.
(fd) Multiline Business Switched Access Lines ‑ Other than Payphone Lines ‑ Include the total of analog and digital multiline business access lines subject to the multiline business interstate end user common line charge including PBX trunks, Centrex-CU trunks, hotel/motel LD trunks and Centrex-CO lines. Payphone lines are to be reported in column (fe) - Multiline Business Switched Access Lines - Payphone Lines. The ratio of multiline business access lines, including payphone lines, to total business access lines, as calculated from the data reported in Table III, (i.e., the sum of columns (fd) and (fe) divided by the sum of columns (fc), (fd), and (fe)), should be consistent with the same ratio as calculated from the data reported in ARMIS Report 43-01, Table II.
(fe) Multiline Business Switched Access Lines ‑ Payphone Lines - Lines that provide payphone service, i.e., total coin (public and semi-public) lines, including customer owned pay telephones (COPT).
(fi) Total Switched Access Lines - The sum of columns (fc) through (fe).
