            ``(6) Common carriers not subject to state commission 
        jurisdiction.--In the case of a common carrier providing 
        telephone exchange service and exchange access that is not 
        subject to the jurisdiction of a State commission, the 
        Commission shall upon request designate such a common carrier 
        that meets the requirements of paragraph (1) as an eligible 
        telecommunications carrier for a service area designated by the 
        Commission consistent with applicable federal and State law. 
        Upon request and consistent with the public interest, 
        convenience and necessity, the Commission may, with respect to 
        an area served by a rural telephone company, and shall, in the 
        case of all other areas, designate more than one common carrier 
        as an eligible telecommunications carrier for a service area 
        designated under this paragraph, so long as each additional 
        requesting carrier meets the requirements of paragraph (1). 
        Before designating an additional eligible telecommunications 
        carrier for an area served by a rural telephone company, the 
        Commission shall find that the designation is in the public 
        interest.''.
