The Florida Senate

2010 Florida Statutes

F.S. 364.3381



The price of a nonbasic telecommunications service provided by a local exchange telecommunications company shall not be below its cost by use of subsidization from rates paid by customers of basic services.


A local exchange telecommunications company which offers both basic and nonbasic telecommunications services shall establish prices for such services that ensure that nonbasic telecommunications services are not subsidized by basic telecommunications services. The cost standard for determining cross-subsidization is whether the total revenue from a nonbasic service is less than the total long-run incremental cost of the service. Total long-run incremental cost means service-specific volume and nonvolume sensitive costs.


The commission shall have continuing oversight jurisdiction over cross-subsidization, predatory pricing, or other similar anticompetitive behavior and may investigate, upon complaint or on its own motion, allegations of such practices.
