WIRELINE COMPETITION BUREAU ANNOUNCES BRIEF
DELAY IN ACTIVATION OF STUDY AREA BOUNDARY COLLECTION SITE
WC Docket No. 10-90
WC Docket No. 05-337On March 18, 2013, the Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureau) announced that state
commissions and incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs) could begin submitting study area and
exchange boundary data on April 29, 2013.1 As a result of unanticipated administrative and technical
issues, there will be a brief delay in the availability of the electronic submission system. The Bureau will
release a Public Notice as soon as the system is available to receive submissions, which we expect to be
no later than Thursday, May 2. Because we anticipate that the delay in the availability of the system will
be brief, the submission deadlines will remain the same. Therefore, state commissions filing study area
boundary data are required to submit and certify the data no later than
June 28, 2013at
https://sab.fcc.gov/state/login/. Individual ILECs serving study areas for which a boundary will not be
submitted by a state must submit and certify the required data on the study area(s) they serve by
