Docket Number: 
WT Docket 02-354

AT&T Wireless Services, Inc. (“AWS”) and Cingular Wireless LLC (“Cingular”) have filed applications pursuant to Section 310(d) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, seeking Commission consent to the full and partial assignment and transfer of control of licenses in the Personal Communications Services (“PCS”). Consent is necessary to implement a joint venture – GSM Corridor, LLC (“GSM Corridor”) – to build infrastructure using GSM technology that will enable the joint venture partners to provide service to subscribers along approximately 4,000 miles of select highways in rural parts of the country. Licenses to be controlled by GSM Corridor will consist of portions of licenses currently held by AWS or its subsidiaries, licenses acquired from third parties, and a license held by a subsidiary of Cingular.

These applications have been consolidated under WT Docket No. 02-354, and most of the record in the proceeding is accessible through the Electronic Comment Filing System. Copies of documents in the record may also be obtained for a fee from FCC's duplicating contractor Qualex International, or may be viewed and/or copied at the FCC Reference Center.

Background

Designated Entity And Entrepreneurial Eligibility Issues

AWS and Cingular state that this transaction will include the transfer of C and F Block PCS licenses to AWP. The Commission’s rules state that “[n]o assignment or transfer of control of a license for frequency Block C or frequency Block F won in closed bidding pursuant to the eligibility requirements of § 24.709 will be granted,” except when, among other things, “[t]he application for assignment or transfer of control is filed on or after the date the licensee has notified the Commission pursuant to § 24.203(c) that its five-year construction requirement has been satisfied.” AWS and Cingular state that five-year build-out notifications have been filed for all the C and F block licenses implicated in the assignment applications.

AWS and Cingular acknowledge that full payment of the remaining unpaid principal and any unpaid interest accrued through the eventual date of the assignments or transfers of control and any other payments otherwise required by Section 1.2111 of the Commission’s rules will be required to be made immediately prior to closing.
