WC Docket No. 14-74

The Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureau) has removed the application listed in this notice from

streamlined treatment pursuant to the Commission’s streamlined procedures for domestic section 214

transfer of control applications.1 Section 63.03(c)(1)(v) of the Commission’s rules provides that, at any

time after an application is filed, the Commission, acting through the Chief of the Bureau, may notify an

applicant that its application is being removed from streamlined processing where the Commission

“determines that the application requires further analysis to determine whether a proposed transfer of

control would serve the public interest.”2

Domestic Section 214 Application Filed for the Transfer of Control of

G3 Telecom USA Inc. to Telehop Communications Inc., WC Docket No. 14-74, Public Notice,

DA 14-719 (rel. May 27, 2014).

On June 18, 2014, the Department of Justice, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with

the concurrence of the Department of Homeland Security (collectively, the Executive Branch Agencies),

filed a letter requesting that the Commission defer action on this application while they review potential

national security, law enforcement, and public safety issues.3

This application is removed from streamlined review in response to the request filed by the

Executive Branch Agencies. Final action on this application should be expected after the Commission

has received notification from the Executive Branch Agencies that the evaluation has been completed, but

not later than 180 days from public notice that the application was accepted for filing.4
