Worldnet Telecomm., Inc. v. PR Tel. Co., Inc., No. 10-2028 (1st Cir. 2011)Annotate this Case
After several failed attempts to establish a voluntary interconnection agreement, the two telecommunications companies went into arbitration with defendant, the Telecommunications Regulatory Board of Puerto Rico. Following a remand, the Board approved a final interconnection agreement pursuant to its authority under the Telecommunications Act of 1996, 47 U.S.C. 251. The district court entered summary judgment in favor of the Board. The First Circuit affirmed, rejecting arguments that various provisions were arbitrary.
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on December 22, 2011.
