The Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau (Bureau) of the Federal Communications Commission (Commission) announces the due dates for comments on a petition for clarification or, in the alternative, reconsideration filed by T-Mobile USA, Inc. (T-Mobile).

On February 24, 2017, T-Mobile filed a petition to ask the Commission to clarify that in its Real-Time Text (RTT) Order it did not intend to change the way carriers deliver calls to Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) using an Emergency Services IP Network (ESINet) and, to the extent the Commission intended such a change, to reconsider that determination.

Comments may be filed using the FCC’s Electronic Comment Filing System at https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/filings.  The proceeding numbers are CG Docket No. 16-145 and GN Docket No. 15-178.
