Streamlined International Applications Accepted For Filing

Section 214 Applications (47 C.F.R. § 63.18); Section 310(B)(4) Requests

Unless otherwise specified, the following procedures apply to the applications listed below:
The international Section 214 applications listed below have been found, upon initial review, to be acceptable for filing
and subject to the streamlined processing procedures set forth in Section 63.12 of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R. §
63.12. These applications are for authority under Section 214 of the Communications Act, 47 U.S.C. § 214, (a) to
transfer control of an authorized carrier or to assign a carrier's existing authorization; and/or (b) to become a
facilities-based international common carrier; and/or (c) to become a resale-based international common carrier.
Pursuant to Section 63.12 of the rules, these Section 214 applications will be granted 14 days after the date of this public
notice (see 47 C.F.R. § 1.4 regarding computation of time), and the applicant may commence operations on the 15th
day, unless the Commission has informed the applicant in writing, within 14 days after the date of this public notice,
that the application, on further examination, has been deemed ineligible for streamlined processing.
Communications between outside parties and Commission staff concerning these applications are permitted subject to
the Commission's rules for "permit-but-disclose proceedings." See 47 C.F.R. § 1.1206. An application can be removed
from streamlined processing only in the sound discretion of Commission staff. The filing of comments or a petition to
deny will not necessarily result in an application being deemed ineligible for streamlined processing.
The petitions for declaratory ruling listed below are for authority under Section 310(b)(4) of the Communications Act,
47 U.S.C. § 310(b)(4), to exceed the 25 percent foreign ownership benchmark applicable to common carrier radio
licensees. The requested rulings will be granted 14 days after the date of this public notice, effective the next day,
unless the application is formally opposed or the Commission has informed the applicant in writing, within 14 days of
the date of this public notice, that the application, on further examination, has been deemed ineligible for streamlined
processing. For this purpose, a formal opposition shall be sufficient only if it is received by the Commission and by the
applicant within 14 days of the date of this public notice and its caption and text make it unmistakably clear that it is
intended to be a formal opposition.
Copies of all applications listed here are available for public inspection in the FCC Office of Public Affairs Reference
and Information Center, located in room CY-A257 at the Portals 2 building, 445 12th Street SW, Washington DC
20554. The center can be contacted at (202) 418-0270. People with Disabilities: To request materials in accessible

All applications listed are subject to further consideration and review, and may be returned and/or dismissed if not
found to be in accordance with the Commission's rules, regulations, and other requirements.
We request that comments on any of these applications refer to the application file number shown below.
