Rodrigo Dienstmann, marketing director of GVT, says the CLEC for nine states in southern and central Brazil plus Brasília has no intention of entering into agreements similar to the ?bill and keep? deal signed by Vésper and Telefonica in São Paulo whereby neither pays the other for local interconnection. GVT?s business model is based on revenue from interconnection and a change in the rules of the game would be unwelcome, Mr Dienstmann says. The CLECs are benefited by an Anatel rule that establishes payment by the incumbent LEC on calls terminating in the CLEC?s network whenever their networks are unbalanced in terms of the volume of traffic they originate and terminate. The LECs want the rule to apply only to voice traffic, arguing that CLECs which provide Internet access may take advantage of servers connected to their networks.
