GCI, ACS and AWN, WT Docket 12-187, WC Docket 09-197

GCI Communication Corp., its wholly-owned subsidiary Unicom, Inc., and ACS Wireless License Sub, Inc. and ACS of Anchorage License Sub, Inc., have filed four separate applications pursuant to Section 310(d) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended seeking consent to assign spectrum licenses to a newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary of GCI Wireless Holdings, LLC, The Alaska Wireless Network, LLC ("AWN"). GCI and ACS Wireless Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alaska Communications Systems Holdings, Inc., would contribute substantially all of their respective wireless infrastructures and associated Title III authorizations to AWN. Under this structure, AWN would develop and sell to ACS Wireless and GCI wholesale wireless services plans on a non-discriminatory basis using the contributed spectrum and infrastructure. ACS Wireless and GCI propose that they would continue to market and sell standalone wireless retail services, separately branding and pricing their individual wireless offerings, and they say that no retail customers would be transferred to AWN.

Petitions to deny and initial comments are due September 21, 2012. To allow the Commission to consider fully all substantive issues regarding the transaction in as timely and efficient a manner as possible, petitioners and commenters should raise all issues in their initial filings. Any person seeking to raise a new issue after the pleading cycle has closed must show good cause why the issue was not raised previously. Any issues that are not timely raised without good cause may be disregarded by the Commission.
