    Sec. 13-514. Prohibited actions of telecommunications carriers. A telecommunications carrier shall not knowingly impede the development of competition in any telecommunications service market. The following prohibited actions are considered per se impediments to the development of competition; however, the Commission is not limited in any manner to these enumerated impediments and may consider other actions which impede competition to be prohibited:
        (1) unreasonably refusing or delaying
interconnections or collocation or providing inferior connections to another telecommunications carrier;
        (2) unreasonably impairing the speed, quality, or
efficiency of services used by another telecommunications carrier;
        (3) unreasonably denying a request of another
provider for information regarding the technical design and features, geographic coverage, information necessary for the design of equipment, and traffic capabilities of the local exchange network except for proprietary information unless such information is subject to a proprietary agreement or protective order;
        (4) unreasonably delaying access in connecting
another telecommunications carrier to the local exchange network whose product or service requires novel or specialized access requirements;
        (5) unreasonably refusing or delaying access by any
person to another telecommunications carrier;
        (6) unreasonably acting or failing to act in a manner
that has a substantial adverse effect on the ability of another telecommunications carrier to provide service to its customers;
        (7) unreasonably failing to offer services to
customers in a local exchange, where a telecommunications carrier is certificated to provide service and has entered into an interconnection agreement for the provision of local exchange telecommunications services, with the intent to delay or impede the ability of the incumbent local exchange telecommunications carrier to provide inter-LATA telecommunications services;
        (8) violating the terms of or unreasonably delaying
implementation of an interconnection agreement entered into pursuant to Section 252 of the federal Telecommunications Act of 1996;
        (9) unreasonably refusing or delaying access to or
provision of operation support systems to another telecommunications carrier or providing inferior operation support systems to another telecommunications carrier;
        (10) unreasonably failing to offer network elements
that the Commission or the Federal Communications Commission has determined must be offered on an unbundled basis to another telecommunications carrier in a manner consistent with the Commission's or Federal Communications Commission's orders or rules requiring such offerings;
        (11) violating the obligations of Section 13-801; and
        (12) violating an order of the Commission regarding
matters between telecommunications carriers.
