Fulfilling one of the requirements mandated under a new state law designed to bring competition to the local exchange market, the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) has approved a temporary solution to the problem of number portability for customers that switch among competing providers. The parties to the case have agreed that LECs shall offer remote call forwarding on a nondiscriminatory basis at a recurring per-line, per-month charge to certificated competing carriers. New market entrants must do likewise for LECs as of the date that they begin providing service. The

parties also agreed that flexible direct inward dialing is an appropriate alternative temporary solution, but that further negotiation between LECs and new market entrants was needed to implement rates and service terms and conditions. Re Temporary Local Telephone Number Portability Solution to Implement Competition, Docket No. 950737-TP, Order No. PSC-95-1214-AS-TP, Oct. 3, 1995 (Fl.P.S.C.).
