May Appeal Decisions Released by FCC

On May 29, 2020, the FCC issued a Public Notice deciding a number of requests for review, requests for waiver, and petitions for reconsideration related to actions taken by USAC.

Appeals involving the following issues were granted:  
  • Late-Filed FCC Form 471 Applications – Filed Within 14 Days of the Close of the Window
  • Remand for Further USAC Review
  • USAC Failure to Process Form
Appeals involving the following issues were denied:
  • Invoice Deadline Extension Requests
