CLECs and Resellers
What is the difference between a CLEC and a Reseller?
Both CLECs and Resellers may operate switches, but only CLECs may operate transmission facilities within Wisconsin.
How should CLECs and Resellers notify the Commission of changes to information, such as name changes, etc.?
If the CLEC or Reseller is changing their official mailing address and/or contact information, it should enter that information via the form on
this web page.
For other changes, including changes to the CLECs or Resellers; name, adoption of d/b/a names or other changes, the CLEC or Reseller should upload a letter, signed by a corporate officer or agent who attests that the information is true and correct, to the Electronic Records Filing system
on the Commission’s website.
All such letters should include the four or five digit PSC Utility ID. If the company is changing its legal name, include the old name, the new name and the effective date of the change in the letter. Attach an electronic copy of the letter to (DFI) approval / acknowledgement.
