Verizon requests a waiver of any applicable TTY-related requirements for its IP-enabled wireless services identical to and subject to the same conditions as the waiver recently granted to AT&T. In the AT&T Waiver Order, the Commission granted AT&T a waiver, but also specifically invited “requests from similarly situated providers seeking a similar waiver of the TTY requirements.” Thus, pursuant to Section 1.3 of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R. § 1.3, Verizon requests prompt approval of the same conditional waiver of sections 6.5, 7.5, 14.20, 20.18(c), and 64.603 of the Commission’s rules “and any other Commission rules that require support of TTY technology as an accessible solution for VoIP networks,” subject to the same customer notification, progress reporting, and duration conditions.
