I1. The non-severed Counts in AT&T's Complaint are Counts I through VI, and Counts XI
through XIII." Counts I and II allege that YMax does not provide the "functional equivalent" of any
competing ILEC's switched access services, as set forth in the Commission's access charge rules and
orders, and, therefore, YMax has violated sections 201(b) and 203(c), respectively, by billing AT&T for
switched access services that YMax has not provided.42 Counts III and IV allege that YMax does not
provide switched access services as defined in its Tariff, and, therefore, YMax has violated sections
203(c) and 201(b), respectively, by billing for services that it did not provide pursuant to the terms of its
Tariff.43 Counts V and VI allege that YMax has violated sections 203(c) and 201(b), respectively, by
billing for "information services" that are not authorized by its Tariff and that Commission rules prohibit
to be tariffed.4 Counts XI and XII allege that YMax has violated sections 201(b) and 203(c),
respectively, by billing rates that exceed the rates that the "competing ILEC" charges for functionally
equivalent service.45 Count XIII alleges that, if the Commission construes the Tariff to permit billing
switched access charges for the services actually provided by YMax, then the Tariff is unjust and
unreasonable under section 201(b).46
