Embarq to Set its Own Rates in Some Missouri cities

The Missouri Public Service Commission is going to let Embarq Corp. set its own telephone rates for the cities of Buckner, Odessa, Oak Grove, Pleasant Hill and Salem.

Embarq was granted competitive classification which allows it to control rates rather than the PSC. To get this classification, at least two other nonaffiliated entities must offer local telecommunication service – a wireless provider and a wireline company that offers local voice service using facilities it owns fully or partially.

This is going to be a great help to Embarq who is playing by one set of rules in a market where other companies are competing with a different set of rules.
