To become a Facility Based or a Reseller CLEC within the CenturyLink territory, follow these steps:
Obtain certification from the Public Utilities Commission in the state(s) where you plan to operate.
Once CenturyLink receives the completed CLEC Agreement Request form, you will be e-mailed a CLEC Interconnection Agreement template, a pricing list for each state requested, and a 160-day letter.
Once both parties have signed the Interconnection Agreement, an account manager will be assigned as your contact within CenturyLink for implementation services. Please see the Customer Contact section of this site for more contact information.
To establish billing accounts for Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs), the following eight forms and/or documents must be completed and submitted to CenturyLink. CLECs will not be able to process any Access Service Requests (ASRs) or Local Service Requests (LSRs) until these documents have been received, approved and processed by your Sales Manager; and the deposit requirements fulfilled.
Please submit copies of your original of the following two items:
- Public Service Commission (PSC)/Public Utilities Commission (PUC) Certification - a copy of the letter received from the appropriate state commission is required.
- Operating Company Number (OCN) - a copy of the notification from the National Exchange Carrier Association (NECA) is required. If you have not yet applied for an OCN, you may contact NECA at 888-221-6322.
