(b)
(c)

engaging in anti-competitive cross-subsidization,


using information obtained from competitors with anti-competitive results: and

are necessary for them to provide services.

2.

Interconnection

This section applies to linking with suppliers providing public telecommunications transport
networks or services in order to allow the users of one supplier to communicate with users of
another supplier and to access services provided by another supplier, where specific
commitments are undertaken.

WT/ACC/MOL/37/Add.2
Page 59
2.2

Interconnection to be ensured

network. Such interconnection is provided.
(a)

(b)

(c)

2.3

under non-discriminatory terms, conditions (including technical standards and


specifications) and rates and of a quality no less favorable than that provided for its
own like services or for like services of non-affiliated service suppliers or for its
subsidiaries or other affiliates;
in a timely fashion, on terms, conditions (including technical standards and
specifications) and cost-oriented rates that are transparent, reasonable, having regard
to economic feasibility, and sufficiently unbundled so that the supplier need not pay
for network components or facilities that it does not require for the service to be
provided, and
upon request, at points in addition to the network termination points offered to me
majority of users, subject to charges that reflect the cost of construction of necessary
additional facilities.

Public availability of the procedures for interconnection negotiations

The procedures applicable for interconnection to a major supplier will be made publicly
available.
2.4

Transparency of interconnection arrangements

5 below, to resolve disputes regarding appropriate terms, conditions and rates for
interconnection within a reasonable period of time, to the extent that these have not been
established previously.
3.

Universal service
Any Member has the right to define the kind of universal service obligation it wishes to
maintain. Such obligations will not be regarded as anti-competitive per se, provided they are
administered in a transparent, non-discriminatory and competitively neutral manner and are
not more burdensome than necessary for the kind of universal service defined by the Member.

4.
