.10 Voluntary Suspension.

At the request of the customer, telephone service may be temporarily suspended without loss of number for a period of 1 month up to a maximum of 1 year. The customer's right to retain his number during a period of suspension is subject to the company's right to change numbers under circumstances which would have called for a number change while the service was active. A suspension of service rate shall be chargeable during this period and shall be lower than the rate for active service.
