BACKGROUND

3.
Pursuant to Section 254(d) of the Act and Sections 54.706 and 54.711 of the Rules,
Telecommunications Service providers that provide interstate Telecommunications Services are required
to file annual and quarterly Telecommunications Reporting Worksheets (FCC Forms 499-A and FCC
Forms 499-Q) and contribute to the federal USF.8
4.
Until July 31, 2013, Globalcom was an Illinois corporation that provided
Telecommunications Services in 31 states.9 As a facilities-based provider of voice and data services,
Globalcom provided local and long distance services primarily to small and medium-sized businesses.10
On July 31, 2013, Globalcom was merged into its corporate affiliate, First Communications,11 an Ohio
limited liability company providing Telecommunications Service throughout the United States.12

5.
In July 2009, USAC referred Globalcom to the Bureau for potential enforcement action,
alleging that Globalcom had failed to comply with the Commission’s rules requiring Telecommunications
Carriers to contribute to the USF.13 The Bureau initiated the Investigation against Globalcom on August
6, 2009, issuing a letter of inquiry (LOI) to Globalcom seeking information about Globalcom’s
compliance with the Commission’s USF contribution rules and other related regulatory obligations.14
Globalcom submitted a response to the LOI on September 22, 2009.15 The Commission released the
Globalcom NAL on March 30, 2010, which found that Globalcom had apparently violated Section 254(d)
of the Act and Sections 54.706(a) and 54.711(a) of the Rules by willfully and repeatedly failing to
contribute fully and timely to the USF from December 2008 to December 2009,16 and failing to timely
submit two Telecommunications Reporting Worksheets (2009 FCC Form 499-A and FCC Form 499-Q)
necessary for the administration of universal service support mechanisms.17
6.
On July 12, 2010, Globalcom filed its response to the Globalcom NAL.18 Among other
things, Globalcom contested liability and requested a reduction in the proposed forfeiture under the
factors in Section 503(b)(2)(D) of the Act.19 Thereafter, the Parties engaged in discussions aimed at
resolving the issues associated with the Investigation.
7.
As of the Effective Date, the Company has paid all invoiced amounts to the USF,
Telecommunications Relay Fund, and cost recovery mechanisms for the North American Numbering Plan
and Local Number Portability administration, and all invoiced regulatory fees.
