Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

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:

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
