telecommunications carriers that purchase unbundled local switching
elements, as described in § 51.319(c)(1), for intrastate toll minutes of
use traversing such unbundled local switching elements, intrastate
access charges comparable to those listed in paragraph (b) and any
explicit intrastate universal service mechanism based on access
charges, only until the earliest of the following, and not thereafter:
(1) June 30, 1997;
(2) The effective date of a state commission decision that an incumbent
LEC may not assess such charges; or

which the Bell operating company is authorized to offer such service.
(d) Interstate access charges described in part 69 shall not be
assessed by incumbent LECs on each element purchased by requesting
