June, Fees for Extensions of Reserved Numbers 25 NRO-WG AGREEMENTS REACHED Under certain circumstances, end users should be allowed to retain their reservations. There should be some disincentive, or criteria, that would dissuade all end users and all carriers from extending reservations for an unlimited period of time.
June, Fees for Extensions of Reserved Numbers 25(continued) NRO-WG Agreements Reached, Contd There appear to be circumstances under which an extension of end-user telephone number assignments may be warranted. Such extensions should be limited in duration and subject to pre-set criteria that discourage use of such extensions. Any disincentive associated with granting of such extensions, as well as criteria for extensions, should apply at the end- user, not carrier level.
June, Fees for Extensions of Reserved Numbers 25(continued) Assumptions Carrier will collect the fee. The reservation extension fee will be greater than the carriers administrative costs in maintaining the reservation. The fee must be large enough to provide a disincentive to reservation extensions. Any revenue from fees charged for reservation extensions should not be retained as a windfall for carriers.
June, Fees for Extensions of Reserved Numbers 25(continued) Assumptions (contd) Carriers will be permitted to recover costs. Fees applied to reservation extensions must be recurring.
