(xx) A common carrier providing local exchange telephone service that is the dominant carrier and that provides ISDN service to residential subscribers and small businesses shall make such a service available to the public for the price of a voice grade line plus no more than the incremental cost of providing the ISDN service. This requirement shall expire when the Commission determines that the common carrier faces actual substantial competition for local exchange services in the residential market.
