  §  51.901   Purpose and scope of transitional access service pricing rules.

   (a) The purpose of this section is to establish rules governing the
   transition of intercarrier compensation from a calling-party's-network
   pays system to a default bill-and-keep methodology. Following the
   transition, the exchange of traffic between and among service providers
   will, by default, be governed by bill-and-keep arrangements.

   (b) Effective December 29, 2011, the provisions of this subpart apply
   to reciprocal compensation for telecommunications traffic exchanged
   between telecommunications providers that is interstate or intrastate
   exchange access, information access, or exchange services for such
   access, other than special access.

   Note to § 51.901: See FCC 11-161, figure 9 (chart identifying steps in
   the transition).
