(1) All telephone corporations which provide message telecommunication services, WATS service or access to their local exchange network for the provision of such services by the use of special access or private line access and switched access, or their equivalents, shall file with the commission, for information purposes, tariffs or price lists which reflect the availability, price, and terms and conditions for those services. Changes to such tariffs or price lists, except as hereinafter provided, shall be effective not less than ten (10) days after filing with the commission, and giving public notice to affected customers.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, telephone corporations shall not be required to file tariffs or price lists for any services provided to business customers.
(2) Upon written notice to the commission and to its business customers, and after posting the rates, terms and conditions of its services on the carrier’s public website, a telephone corporation may withdraw any tariff or price list not required to be filed under the provisions of this section, provided:
(a) The carrier continues to maintain the rates, terms and conditions of its services on the company’s public website;
(b) The commission maintains access to such terms and conditions of the telephone corporation’s service; and
(c) Nothing in this section overrides the commission’s existing authority pursuant to section 62-616, Idaho Code, to resolve customer complaints.
