Subject: Rumor:  US West ISDN Tariff Filing (?) For New Mexico
Date: Thu, 2 Nov 95 19:51:42 GMT
Organization: Los Alamos
Lines: 39
Message-ID: 

An ISDN tariff filing is expected Nov. 30 according to the New Mexico State
Corporation Commission's Ken Solomon .  The state
is interested in hearing e-mail comments from concerned New Mexicans.  The
tariff is expected to be limited to those  ISDN equipped, telephone central
offices in Alamo, Albuquerque, Bernalillo, Deming??, Farmington, Grants, Las
Cruces, Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Silver, Taos, and White Rock.  Basic Rate
Interface (BRI) 2B+D service is expected to be offered at $39 for fully
measured service, $68 for first 200 hours usage (measured after that) and
$184 for flat, full-time usage service.  All will have a $110 non-recurring
charge for initial set-up.  They are also expected to propose offering 23B+D
Primary Rate Interface (PRI) voice/data service for $400/mo and
non-recurring of $1,025. They are also expected to offer 23B channels (data
only) PRI service at $583/mo and $1265 non-recurring. Hopefully this rumor
will become fact ending a long wait for New Mexico.

= = = = = 
Some obvious questions waiting  future input and / or answers:

(1)  What will be the measured service cost per B-channel call minute ? 
(2)  Will measures service be applicable to long distance calls?
(3)  Will measures service rates be applicable to calls within the same
centron group (applicable to business customers)?
(4)  Will voice feature packages be AT&T "Custom" and/or  standards based,
National ISDN?
(5)  Can a residence have an ISDN line without having a POTS line given UPS
power?
(6)  Will 2B+D BRI circuits be capable of two simultaneous data calls (128
Kbit/s bandwidth)?
(7)  What is the implementation schedule for rolling out this service?
(8)  When does US West plan to offer ISDN from non-ISDN capable central offices?
(9)  Will trunk circuits provide users with Caller ID information?
