   Amendment Application for Optical Subscriber Lines Interconnection Charges





On January 9, 2008, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone West Corporation ('NTT West')
submitted to the Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications an application
seeking authorization to revise Articles of Agreement Concerning Interconnection
to Designated Telecommunications Facilities, applicable beginning the fiscal
year ending March 31, 2009. In response to a request from the Minister, which
was based on the report from the Telecommunications Council on March 27, 2008,
NTT West submitted today its amendment application to the Minister.



1. Summary

(1) Revision of the demand estimates for optical subscriber lines (dark fiber)
that will be used by interconnection service providers

We changed a part of the demand estimation, for optical subscriber lines of the
application for the authorization on January 9, 2008. The interconnection demand
growth rate observed during the period of demand expansion in the ADSL market is
employed to estimate the demand for an optical main subscriber line and an
optical branch subscriber line by interconnection service providers.

(2) Revision of the concept of adjustment of disparities between results and
forecasts

The concept of disparities to be adjusted in the subsequent calculation period
is changed from 'difference between actual revenue arising from interconnection
charges*1 and actual interconnection cost' to 'difference between actual revenue
arising from interconnection charges and estimated interconnection costs
(estimated revenue arising from interconnection charges*2).'




*1:   Actual revenue arising from interconnection charges = actual number of core-cables in use x interconnection
      charges in the calculation period.
*2:   Estimated revenue arising from interconnection charges = estimated number of core-cables in use x interconnection
      charges in the calculation period.
