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

TRINITY COMMUNICATIONS LTD
Amendment
Amendment filed to ITC-T/C-20090506-00204, an application for consent to the transfer of control of international section 214 authorization,
ITC-214-20030515-00268, held by Trinity Communications Ltd. (Trinity) from Columbus Communications Ltd. (Columbus) to Cable Bahamas
Ltd. (CBL). See DA 09-1856, rel. August 25, 2009. Trinity is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Caribbean Crossing Ltd., which in turn is a
wholly-owned subsidiary of CBL. Columbus is the controlling shareholder of CBL through a 30.2% equity interest in CBL and voting authority
to elect three (3) of the five (5) directors of CBL.
Pursuant to the terms of a Share Purchase Agreement executed between CBL, Columbus and its indirect parent Columbus Communications Inc.,
Columbus will sell and CBL will purchase 100 percent of the shares in CBL currently owned by Columbus. As a result of the proposed
transaction, the other existing owners will increase their ownership of CBL.
CBL has subsequently entered into a Trust Declaration pursuant to which 5,000,000 shares of CBL common stock currently held by Columbus
will be held by a newly created trust independent of both CBL and the Government of the Bahamas. Consequently, the Trust will have a 26.74%
equity and voting interest in CBL. The trustee is Dr. Keva Bethel, a citizen of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. The Government of the
Bahamas will have a combined 21.39% equity and voting interest in CBL. (The National Insurance Board (NIB), an instrumentality of the
Government of the Bahamas will hold a 16.23% interest and the Treasurer of the Government of the Bahamas will have a 5.16% interest.) No
other individuals or entities will have a 10 percent or greater direct or indirect equity or voting interest in CBL.
The Trust will terminate 14 days after the occurrence of the first of the following to occur: (a) the sale by Bahamas Telecommunications
Corporation of more than 50% of its capital shares to a third party other than the Government of The Bahamas or an instrumentality thereof; (b)
the admission of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas to the World Trade Organization; (c) the dilution of the interest in CBL held by the
Government of The Bahamas to a level that, if the Trust Shares were transferred to CBL, the combined equity and voting interest of the
Government of The Bahamas in CBL would be 25% or less; or (d) the dissolution or liquidation of CBL. At that time the shares of CBL held by
the trust will be distributed to the other existing owners of CBL and the Government of the Bahamas will have a 29.2% ownership interest in
CBL. (NIB will hold a 21.9% interest and the Treasurer will have a 7.3% interest.) No other individuals or entities will have a 10 percent or
greater direct or indirect equity or voting interest in CBL.
