WIRELESS TELECOMMUNICATIONS BUREAU EXTENDS COMMENT PERIOD RE:

AT&T REQUESTS FOR WAIVER OF CELLULAR LICENSE APPLICATION RULES

CONCERNING SERVICE AREA BOUNDARY EXTENSIONS

WT Docket No. 13-10

On February 5, 2013, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (“Bureau”) released a Public
Notice in this docket1 seeking comment on multiple requests for waiver of Sections 1.923(a) and
22.911(d)2 of the Commission’s Rules, filed by AT&T Mobility, LLC, a subsidiary of AT&T, Inc.
(“AT&T”). In a jointly filed “Request for Extension of Time,” AT&T and Cellco Partnership d/b/a
Verizon Wireless (“Verizon”) ask pursuant to section 1.46 of the Commission’s Rules3 that the comment
deadline for the applications listed in the attached Appendix be extended by 30 days.4 By this Public
Notice
, we extend the comment and reply comment filing deadlines as described below solely with regard
to the applications listed in the attached Appendix.
It is the Commission's policy under Section 1.46(a) that extensions of time are not routinely
granted. In the instant case, however, we find that extending the comment and reply comment periods for
certain applications will serve the public interest by allowing AT&T and Verizon additional time for their
ongoing negotiations of mutually required extension agreements. Accordingly, solely for the applications
listed in the attached Appendix, we hereby grant the request jointly filed by AT&T and Verizon and
extend the deadline for filing comments to March 22, 2013. We also hereby extend the deadline for filing
reply comments to April 5, 2013 for the applications listed in the Appendix. This action is taken pursuant
to authority found in Section 4(i) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. § 154(i),
and sections 0.131, 0.331, and 1.46 of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R. §§ 0.131, 0.331, and 1.46.
For further information, contact Ms. Nina Shafran of the Mobility Division, Wireless
Telecommunications Bureau, at (202) 418-2781 or via e-mail at nina.shafran@fcc.gov.
