Received from Scott Potter (Staff Ohio PUC) 3/25/97 BB

March 24, 1997

Attention Ohio Telecommunications Service Providers:

The Staff of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio is reconvening

the Ohio LNP Workshop, which was postponed in January pending the

release of the FCC order on reconsideration in 95-116. The FCC has

released its order, and the plan our region adopted was approved.

Switches will be converted on a request basis as planned.

Due to the amount of time that has elapsed, the numerous new NEC

certifications, and an error in the original list of switches, the

Staff is reissuing the Master Pick List. NECs that wish to have

switches initially converted to LRN LNP should return a completed

Master Pick List by April 25, 1997.

Staff will collect and aggregate the switch requests according to

the agreements reached during the Ohio workshops. This aggregated

list will then be turned over to the ILECs at the next workshop

meeting. This workshop meeting has been scheduled for May 5, 1997,

10:30AM, in Hearing Room 11 C of the Commission Offices.

There will be a conference call to answer questions on April 1,

1997 at 10:00 AM ET on 216-787-0997. If you need further

information call 614-752-9072.
