* Weekly intercompany test conference calls will commence on May 19th and will be held every Tuesday thru June 30th. The purpose of the call will be to review and address testing issues.

Minutes outlining the status of the calls will be distributed.

* The re was discussion on when service providers would begin querying the LNP database. Ameritech, WorldCom, Time Warner, and McLeod all indicated they would not begin queries until the first number in a portable NXX is ported. GTE plans to start querying when an NXX is open for porting.

* The group also discussed processes for opening NPA-NXXs for portability. Ameritech stated they plan to open NPA-NXXs by request. Time Warner, GTE, and ATT indicated that they plan to open all NPA-NXXs in a switch as it becomes LNP capable . Time Warner opposes Ameritech’s code opening process . They feel that the MSA switch selection process was sufficient and that Ameritech’s code opening process is a redundant effort.

* Ameritech has opened an e-mail address to facilitate the opening of NXXs for porting. The e-mail address is :

Follow the Code opening process flow when requesting NXXs to be opened and forward your forcast to this email account. The account will be checked daily for requests and will respond immediately with receipt. Please insure the requests clearly identify the NPA/NXX to be made portable, as well as the desired date.

* There was discussion on whether the Ameritech test numbers for porting out require an associated E911 address for testing E911. This process is being researched by Ralph McCary (Time Warner).

* The group agreed that there will not likely be any more face to face meetings concerning the Indianapolis MSA. The weekly conference calls should be sufficient to complete LNP implementation in the Indianapolis MSA. Face to face meetings will convene in the future for implementation of phase 4 and phase 5 sites.

* Ralph and Tina asked for volunteers to co-chair the Indiana LNP Task Force Committee. Ralph indicated that Time Warner does not, at this time, have any further LNP involvement in the remaining Indiana MSAs (phases 4 &5). His efforts will be focused elsewhere in the country. Tina announced that she will be on maternity leave in the fall and will need someone to replace to her.
