On September 1, 2005, the Commission granted T-Netix Telecommunications Services, Inc. (“T-Netix”) a certificate of service authority to provide private pay telephone service in the State of Missouri via customer-owned pay telephone equipment in File No. PA-2006-0021.
On March 29, 2013, T-Netix filed a Statement of Revenue with the Commission, in which T-Netix indicated a wish to no longer retain its certificate of service authority. On June 20, 2013, the Staff of the Missouri Public Service Commission filed a motion requesting the Commission cancel T-Netix’s certificate of service to provide private pay telephone service in the State of Missouri via customer-owned pay telephone equipment.
Staff states in its motion that T-Netix, to the best of Staff’s knowledge, is not providing services in Missouri. Staff recommends that the Commission cancel T-Netix’s certificate of service authority.
The Commission has the authority to cancel a certificate pursuant to Section 392.410.5, RSMo Cum.Supp.2012, which states, in part, “[a]ny certificate or service authority may be altered or modified by the commission after notice and hearing, upon its own motion or upon application of the person or company affected.”
On June 27, 2013, the Commission issued an Order Directing Notice allowing any parties to file an objection or request a hearing no later than July 8, 2013. No objections or requests for a hearing were filed. The Commission need not hold a hearing, if, after proper notice and opportunity to intervene, no party requests such a hearing.
Based on Staff’s motion, the Commission finds that the certificate of service authority granted to T-Netix Telecommunications Services, Inc., shall be canceled.
THE COMMISSION ORDERS THAT:
1. The certificate of service authority to provide private pay telephone service in the State of Missouri via customer-owned pay telephone equipment, granted to T-Netix Telecommunications Services, Inc. in File No. PA-2006-0021 is canceled.
2. This order shall become effective on July 22, 2013.
