§ 54.803 Universal service zones.
(a) The zones used for determining interstate access universal service
support shall be the same zones that would be used for End User Common
Line (EUCL) charge deaveraging as described in § 69.152(q)(2) of this
(b) In a price cap study area where the price cap local exchange
carrier has not established state-approved prices for UNE loops by
zone, the Administrator shall develop an estimate of the local exchange
carrier's Zone Above Benchmark Revenues for transitional purposes, in
order to reserve a portion of the fund for that study area. This
estimate will be included by the Administrator in the Nationwide Study
Area Above Benchmark Revenues calculated pursuant to § 54.806.
(1) For the purpose of developing this transitional estimate, the loop
and port costs estimated by the FCC cost model, or other substitute
method if no model is available, shall be used.
(2) For the purpose of developing this transitional estimate, the
administrator shall construct three zones. Wire centers within the
study area will be grouped into these zones in such a way that each
zone is assigned approximately one third of local exchange carrier base
period lines in the study area, with the lowest cost wire centers
assigned to Zone 1, the highest cost wire centers assigned to Zone 3,
and the remainder to Zone 2.
