PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The purposes of the rule amendments are to delete any provisions that are obsolete; to create a market test which, if met, would provide for streamlined regulation in which 53 rules would not apply; to clarify when the rule applies only to rate-of-return regulated local exchange telecommunication companies; to better reflect the telecommunications industry state of competition; and to address certain matters on a complaint basis. Under the new rule proposal for Rule 25-4.008, F.A.C., on Streamlined Regulation for Telecommunications Markets and Companies, the companies meeting the test for competitive markets or streamlined regulation would not be subject to the following rules: Rule 25-4.0185, F.A.C., Periodic Reports; Rule 25-4.0201, F.A.C., Audit Access to Records; Rule 25-4.021, F.A.C., System Maps and Records; Rule 25-4.023, F.A.C., Report of Interruptions; Rule 25-4.066, Availability of Service; Rule 25-4.069, F.A.C., Maintenance of Plant and Equipment; Rule 25-4.070, F.A.C., Customer Trouble Reports; Rule 25-4.071, F.A.C., Adequacy of Service; Rule 25-4.072, F.A.C., Transmission Requirements; Rule 25-4.073, F.A.C., Answering Time; Rule 25-4.074, F.A.C., Intercept Service; Rule 25-4.077, F.A.C., Metering and Recording Equipment; Rule 25-4.083, F.A.C., Preferred Carrier Freeze; Rule 25-4.085, F.A.C., Service Guarantee Program; Rule 25-4.107, F.A.C., Information to Customers; Rule 25-4.108, F.A.C., Initiation of Service; Rule 25-4.109, Customer Deposits; Rule 25-4.110, F.A.C., Customer Billing for Local Exchange Telecommunications Companies; Rule 25-4.112, F.A.C., Termination of Service by Customer; Rule 25-4.113, F.A.C., Refusal or Discontinuance of Service by Company; Rule 25-4.114, F.A.C., Refunds; Rule 25-4.115, F.A.C., Directory Assistance; Rule 25-4.117, F.A.C., 800 Service; Rule 25-4.200, F.A.C., Application and Scope; Rule 25-4.202, F.A.C., Construction; Rule 25-4.210, F.A.C., Service Evaluation and Investigations; Rule 25-4.214, F.A.C., Tariff Filings; Rule 25-4.215, F.A.C., Limited Scope Proceedings; Rule 25-9.005, F.A.C., Information to Accompany Filings; Rule 25-9.020, F.A.C., Front Cover; Rule 25-9.021, F.A.C., Title Page; Rule 25-9.022, F.A.C., Table of Contents; Rule 25-9.023, F.A.C., Description of Territory Served; Rule 25-9.024, F.A.C., Miscellaneous; Rule 25-9.025, F.A.C., Technical Terms and Abbreviations; Rule 25-9.026, F.A.C., Index of Rules and Regulations; Rule 25-9.027, F.A.C., Rules and Regulations; Rule 25-9.029, F.A.C., Index of Rate or Exchange Schedules; Rule 25-9.030, F.A.C., Rate Schedules-General; Rule 25-9.032, F.A.C., Telephone Utility Exchange Schedules; Rule 25-9.045, F.A.C., Withdrawal of Tariffs.
