Effective July 31, 2001, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) prohibited long distance carriers from filing tariffs for almost all interstate (i.e., state-to-state) services. On January 27, 2002, the FCC also prohibited long distance carriers from filing tariffs for almost all international services. Effective with these changes, the terms and conditions that apply to the provision of interstate and international service are embodied in contracts between you and your long distance provider. Verizon Long Distance and Verizon Enterprise Solutions send to each new customer a copy of the Long Distance Companies’ Service Agreement. The FCC also ordered on August 31, 2007 that Verizon local exchange operating carriers may not file or maintain tariffs for certain interstate intraLATA (regional or local) toll services. Effective August 1, 2008, the rates, service descriptions and terms and conditions for those services will no longer be subject to tariffs on file with the FCC.
The Long Distance Companies’ Service Agreement describes the respective rights and obligations of you and the Verizon long distance companies with respect to the long distance services that they provide to you. A copy of the Agreement is available below. Please read this Agreement carefully as it affects your rights. If you have any questions, please contact Verizon.
Depending upon the long distance plan ordered, some business customers of the Verizon long distance companies may be required to sign a Telecommunications Service Agreement as a condition to obtaining long distance service. This Agreement will control the contractual relationship between the Verizon long distance companies and these business customers. The Telecommunications Service Agreement can be accessed below.
