AT&T Corp. indicates that it plans to discontinue offering Fractional TI Channel service to new
customers and plans to impose certain restrictions on service to existing customers in the Service Areas
on or after September 30, 2012, subject to Commission authorization. AT&T Corp. also explains that,
upon expiration of existing contracts, it will continue to provide Fractional TI Channel service to existing
customers on a month-to-month basis until it discontinues the service entirely, which is currently planned
for March 31, 2014. Accordingly, pursuant to section 63.71(c) and the terms of the customer notices
included in AT&T's application, absent further Commission action, AT&T Corp. may cease to offer the
affected service to new customers and may impose restrictions on service to existing customers in the
Service Areas on or after September 30, 2012, in accordance with AT&T's filed representations. In
addition, pursuant to section 63.71(c) and the terms of the customer notices included in AT&T's
application, absent further Commission action, AT&T Corp. may discontinue the affected service in the
Service Areas on or after March 31, 2014, in accordance with AT&T's filed representations. The
Commission normally will authorize proposed discontinuances of service unless it is shown that
customers or other end users would be unable to receive service or a reasonable substitute from another
carrier, or that the public convenience and necessity would be otherwise adversely affected.
