No. 28224 Service Date: December 10, 2021 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SERVICE REGULATION BEFORE THE PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION OF THE STATE OF MONTANA IN THE MATTER OF the Commission's Investigation into the Adequacy of Legacy Infrastructure Operated by Qwest Corporation d/b/a CenturyLink QC REGULATORY DIVISION DOCKET NO. 2021.12.136 NOTICE OF COMMISSION ACTION AND INTERVENTION DEADLINE On December 7, 2021, at a regularly scheduled business meeting, the Commission voted unanimously to open an investigation into the adequacy of legacy infrastructure owned and operated by CenturyLink Communications, LLC, and its affiliated Montana Incumbent Local Exchange Carriers ("ILECs"), CenturyTel of Montana and Qwest Corporation, d/b/a CenturyLink QC. Mont. Code Ann. ยง 69-3-201 requires public utilities to furnish reasonably adequate service and facilities. The Commission has received formal and informal complaints alleging CenturyLink has failed to provide adequate infrastructure to the residents in rural areas. Among concerns raised were long service outages in rural areas, the inability to access 911 services, and storms causing the CenturyLink infrastructure to initiate false 911 calls. The issues raised are concerning to the Commission. The alleged problems impact the ability of rural Montanans to conduct their everyday lives and businesses. Most worrisome to the Commission is the impact on public safety if CenturyLink customers are unable to access 911 service. The Commission has determined that a formal investigation is warranted. The Commission invites any interested party affected by the Commission's investigation to intervene in this docket. To intervene, a party must file a petition to intervene with the Commission no later than January 31, 2022. A party seeking intervention must: (1) submit an electronic petition at the Commission's website at http://psc.mt.gov ("EDDI, Customer Portal & E-Filing" icon); (2) mail the original copy of the petition to the Commission address stated above; (3) mail an electronic or physical copy of the petition to the office of the Montana Consumer Counsel ("MC), which represents consumer interests before the Commission, 111 North Last Chance Gulch, Suite 1B, Helena, MT, (406) 444-2771. Interested parties can register on the Commission's website to be added to the Watch List for notice of filings in this docket (select "EDDI", create ePass account, and, under "Watch List" tab, enter Docket No. 2021.12.136). The Commission invites members of the public who do not wish to formally intervene to submit written public comments on the matter to the Commission's address at 1701 Prospect Ave., P.O.

The Commission's jurisdiction over this investigation is found in Title 69 and Title 2, Chapter 4 of the Montana Code Annotated, and Title 38, Chapters 2 and 5 of the Montana Administrative Rules, and any prior orders of the Commission relevant to the issues presented.
