Order: In this Order, we grant the request of North River Telephone Cooperative (North River), an eligible telecommunications carrier (ETC) in Virginia, for a waiver of the annual filing deadline set forth in section 54.904(d) of the Commission’s rules. We find that North River has demonstrated good cause that warrants this waiver. 12/28/06. Word | Acrobat| Text

 

Order: In this Order, we grant MCI's petition for waiver of sections 54.802(a) and 54.809(c) of the Commission's rules. MCI missed its annual certification and three quarterly line reports for interstate access support (IAS) during a time when it was transitioning from bankruptcy. We find that MCI has demonstrated good cause to grant this waiver: MCI's difficulties with emerging from bankruptcy and the impact of a loss of approximately $1.5 million in IAS funding. 12/28/06.

Order: In this Order, we grant Mid-Tex's petition for waiver of section 54.314(d)(5) of the Commission's rules and deny Mid-Tex's petition for waiver of section 54.904 of the Commission's rules. We find that Mid-Tex's ETC designation date made it impossible for the state commission to file the high-cost use certification prior to the deadline in section 54.314(d)(5). We also find that Mid-Tex's confusion over the ICLS certification deadline in section 54.904 did not warrant a waiver. 12/28/06. Word | Acrobat| Text

 

Order: In this Order, we grant San Isabel's request for a waiver of various line count and certification filing deadline so that it may receive universal service support beginning immediately after its ETC designation date of December 30, 2002. We conclude that the missed deadlines were not the fault of San Isabel. We deny, however, San Isabel's request for waiver of the two line count filing deadlines that occurred after the date the state commission certified San Isabel (Sept 24, 2003). We find no reason why San Isabel could not have submitted those required filings. As a result, San Isabel will not be eligible for universal service support for the first and second quarters of 2004. In summary, the Order permits San Isabel to be eligible for universal service support from Jan 1, 2003 to Dec 31, 2003 and from July 1, 2004 and thereafter. 12/28/06. Word | Acrobat| Text
