CLECs have been identified under several different names such as:
  • Alternate Exchange Carrier (AEC)
  • Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC)
  • Co-Provider
AEC is an old term, which you may not often see, CLEC is the industry standard term for Co-Providers other than a regionís incumbent Local Exchange Carriers (ILEC). CLEC is the preferred CenturyLink term for other Co-Providers.
