Section I.2: Intrastate DS0 (Hubless) Access


I.          SERVICE DESCRIPTION: Intrastate DS0 (Hubless) Access is provided by MCI Legacy Company. Intrastate DS0 (Hubless) Access is a digital local access arrangement that consists of a Local Access circuit (Local Loop) that relies on DS0 transmission technology provided by the Local Exchange Carrier or other access provider offering bandwidth up to 64 kbps that is used to connect Customer's Premises to the MCI Legacy Company’s Point-of-Presence (POP) to provide Customer access to MCI Legacy Company services. It is known as " DS0 Hubless " because it does not physically pass through the centralized Local Exchange Carrier wire center or hub.
