Divergence in Operations: Comparative Analysis of Small ILEC CHCF-A Carriers to Non-CHCF-A Carriers Communications Division January 2010* * Revised as of March 2011

Slide 2

This review is of 17 little ILECs working in California who were qualified to get CHCF-A subsidizing from 2003-2008. These bearers go in size from 200 to 23,000 get to lines. In 2009, the quantity of qualified little ILECs diminished to 14.

Slide 3

Major Findings Gross Revenues per get to line is three to four circumstances higher for CHCF-A transporters than for Non-CHCF-A bearers for the years 2007 and 2008. Indeed, even after CHCF-A store support is barred, CHCF-A bearers still earned gross incomes per get to line that is a few circumstances more than their Non-CHCF-A partners. Net salary of CHCF-A bearers is a few circumstances more than their Non-CHCF-A partners, yet when CHCF-A support is prohibited from net wage, CHCF-An organizations net pay gets to be distinctly negative. In 2008, Operating Expenses of CHCF-A bearers were three circumstances higher than Non-CHCF-An organizations yet in some past periods the dissimilarity was more than six circumstances . CHCF-A transporters spending versus Non-CHCF-A bearers: five and one-half circumstances more on Corporate Operating costs four circumstances more on Plant Specific costs two circumstances more on Customer Operating costs and Depreciation and Amortization Total Plant In Service spending for CHCF-A transporters in the vicinity of 2003 and 2008 is no less than 134% more than Non-CHCF-A transporters for all segments with the exception of Above Ground where Non-CHCF-A transporters spend more. CHCF-A transporters spending versus Non-CHCF-A bearers: three circumstances more on TPIS: Land and Support one and one half circumstances more on TPIS: Cable and Wire three to four circumstances more on Net Average TPIS

Slide 5

The quantity of get to lines getting CHCF-A has diminished somewhat since 2005. While CHCF-A financing has expanded by 18 % for that same day and age.

Slide 6

Comparing 2008 to 2005, yearly subsidizing per get to line has expanded by $69.48 or more than 17.6% . In 2008, CHCF-A transporters got $38.54 every month per get to line.

Slide 7

Gross Revenues per Access Line for CHCF-A transporters is about four circumstances higher than Non-CHCF-A bearers. Without CHCF-A subsidizing, it is more than three circumstances higher.

Slide 8

The working costs of CHCF-A bearers are three circumstances more noteworthy than Non-CHCF-A transporters. The working cost differential amongst Alpine and Valley transporters is immaterial.

Slide 9

CHCF-A bearers are burning through 144% to 550% more on working cost parts than Non-CHCF-A transporters The Operating Expense difference has been over 600% in a few years.

Slide 10

Net pay per Access Line for CHCF-A bearers is a few circumstances more noteworthy than that of Non-CHCF-A transporters. At the point when CHCF-A support is barred, the net pay of CHCF-A bearers is negative . This proposes CHCF-A bearers working cost spending surpasses their incomes

Slide 11

CHCF-A transporters are burning through 302% more for Land and Support CHCF-A bearers are burning through 185% more for Cable and Wire CHCF-A bearers burn through 76% of what Non-CHCF-A transporters spend on Above Ground TPIS CHCF-A transporters Net TPIS has now achieved 330% more than Non-CHCF-A bearers

Slide 12

Both transporter bunches appear to encounter comparatively coordinated ROR changes But, Non-CHCF-A Carriers ROR variances are more extraordinary overall Non-CHCF-A Carriers are accomplishing higher ROR

Slide 13

Findings and Recommendations This investigation of CHCF-A bearers was led to figure out if there exists critical contrasts in the business lead of CHCF-An and Non-CHCF-A transporters that may clarify their undeniably higher draws from the CHCF-A reserve. We find that albeit comparatively arranged there are significant contrasts in the operations of these two transporter sorts. Most eminently, CHCF-A supported transporters are: Significantly outspending Non-CHCF-A bearers Incurring working costs and plant in administration consumptions far higher than Non-CHCF-A bearers Generating more prominent gross incomes than non-CHCF-A transporters, yet their higher costs result in negative net incomes per get to line when A-finance appropriation is evacuated. Given the above discoveries, we prescribe an Order Instituting Rulemaking (OIR) to additionally explore why CHCF-A bearer operations are so not quite the same as Non-CHCF-A transporters. Opening an OIR to re-assess the A-subsidize and consider elective vehicles that would all the more proficiently guarantee widespread administration in the present broadcast communications commercial center ought to be the goal.

Slide 14

Findings and Recommendations ( proceeded with) Alternative choices to survey in an OIR may incorporate at least one of the accompanying models: Incentive-benchmark sponsorship demonstrate – an appropriation in which transporters are granted for effectiveness in operations, upgraded advertise infiltration of all inclusive telephone utilities, and judicious capital speculation. Buyer coordinate model – an endowment in which the installments are paid straightforwardly to clients. Chance sharing model – an endowment in which business dangers are shared between the shareholders and rate-payers in which, any non-controlled incomes created from the venture of the CHCF-A reserve sponsorship component (e.g. capital speculations) are imparted to the CHCF-A store. Level allow display – an appropriation giving a level dollar sum for each get to line in light of industry or comparable bearer cost elements. Topped appropriation display – a settled sponsorship that is balanced in light of an industry particular pointer, for example, the media communications CPI. Add up to operations show – an appropriation wherein all correspondence administrations including phone, broadband, VOIP, and so forth., are incorporated for ratemaking purposes.

Slide 15

Definitions and Information Access lines : Unique broadcast communications get to focuses. One get to line for the most part shows one client. High Carriers : Carriers with a considerable piece of their domain in the rugged/foothill landscape. They incorporated all bearers aside from those recorded as Valley beneath. Valley Carriers : Carriers with considerable parts of their domain in non sloping/for the most part level territory. With the end goal of this review they were; Ducor, Global Valley, Kerman, and Winterhaven. CHCF-A : California High Cost Fund-A CHCF-A Carriers : Small Local Exchange Carriers (LECs) that get CHCF-An appropriation subsidizing. They incorporate; Calaveras, Cal-Ore, Ducor, Foresthill, Kerman, Pinnacles, Ponderosa, Sierra, Siskiyou, and Volcano. Non-CHCF-A bearers : Happy Valley, Hornitos, Verizon WC, Winterhaven and Citizens-G, Citizens-T, and Global Valley which, in 2009, turn out to be a piece of Citizens California and are no longer Non-CHCF-A transporters. Net Revenues : Local Revenues, Network Revenues, Long Distance, and Miscellaneous Revenues. Net pay : Operating Revenues less Operating Expenses less Taxes and Interest. Working Expense Components : Depreciations and Amortizations, (D&A), Plant Specifics, Customer Operations, and Corporate Operations. Rate of Return (ROR) : Net pay as a rate of net normal TPIS. TPIS : Telephone Plant In Service. TPIS Components : Land and Support, Central Office Switching, Transmission, Cable and Wire, Above Ground Net Average TPIS : normal of starting year TPIS and end of year TPIS. Information Collection Carrier monetary information was gotten from their reports as documented every year with the Commission CHCF-An and government USF sponsorship information were acquired from the Commission records.
