(a) The rates, charges, tolls, or rentals demanded, exacted, charged, or collected by any telecommunications company for services subject to s. 364.03, or the rules, regulations, or practices of any telecommunications company affecting such rates, charges, tolls, rentals, or service, are unjust, unreasonable, unjustly discriminatory, unduly preferential, or in anywise in violation of law;
