American Samoa Requests FCC Waiver

The Acting Samoa Governor and the Samoa Education Department recently submitted letters to the FCC in support of the American Samoa Telecommunications Authority (ASTCA) reconsideration appeal that could potentially cost the only Samoa E-rate service provider nearly $740,000 in support. The ASTCA missed a key Form 474 invoicing deadline in FY 2017 and contend the missed deadline was due to a natural disaster plus the “unexpected death of its Chief Executive Officer necessitated a sudden internal reorganization.”  
ASTCA is asking for a waiver of the missed invoicing deadline and the reconsideration appeal can be viewed here.
