Why is CLD sending me this Long Distance Services Agreement?

In the past, CLD and other long distance companies filed tariffs with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). A tariff is a regulatory document that governs the rates, terms and conditions under which service is provided to customers. Because state-to-state and international long distance calling is now a competitive service, the FCC eliminated the requirement for filing tariffs for these services. Therefore, the terms and conditions will now be provided in the Long Distance Service Agreement.
