MIDTEL’s proposed fiber project will meet and comply with the NOFA non-discrimination and network interconnection policies.
Non-discrimination – MIDTEL will meet or exceed the requirements set forth by the FCC's Internet Policy Statement, FCC 05-151, adopted August 5, 2005 regarding non-discrimination and actively encourages broadband deployment and the preservation and promotion of the open and interconnected nature of the public Internet.
Interconnection – MIDTEL’s middle mile service offering will be high-capacity, point-to-point private line transport services. MIDTEL will not manage or limit the content of communications traffic transiting MIDTEL's network, except to the extent necessary to maintain reliable service. MIDTEL’s network management practices will not involve preferential routing of traffic on the basis of content or provider. MIDTEL will utilize neutral traffic routing, and will enable connections to other carriers and to the public Internet. MIDTEL will display its network management policies in a prominent location on its Web page, and will provide notice to customers of changes to these policies.
MIDTEL will continue to interconnect with other carriers to exchange traffic at our primary POP locations and possibly other network nodes, where feasible. MIDTEL will negotiate with bona fide requesting parties to interconnect on negotiated, commercially-reasonable terms and conditions.
