Verizon's Petition for Forebearance

Subject: VERIZON TELEPHONE COMPANIES' PETITION FOR
FORBEARANCE FROM
TITLE II AND COMPUTER INQUIRY RULES WITH RESPECT TO
THEIR BROADBAND
SERVICES IS GRANTED BY OPERATION OF LAW
The Verizon telephone companies (Verizon) filed a
petition for forbearance from Title II of the
Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and the
Commission's Computer Inquiry rules on December 20,
2004. On December 19, 2005, the Commission extended
the forbearance deadline to March 19, 2006. Verizon
amended its petition on February 7 and February 17th,
2006. Section 10(c) provides that a forbearance
petition “shall be deemed granted if the Commission
does not deny the petition for failure to meet the
requirements for forbearance under subsection (a)
within one year after the Commission receives it,
unless the one year period is extended by the
Commission.” This is to inform the public that,
pursuant to section 10(c), the relief requested in
VerizonÂ’s petition was deemed granted by operation of
law, effective March 19, 2006.

Docket No.: 04-440.
