January Appeal Decisions Released by FCC

On February 1, 2024, the FCC issued its monthly Public Notice deciding requests for review, requests for waiver, and petitions for reconsideration related to actions taken by USAC. The FCC resolves requests that are consistent with its precedent by issuing a “streamlined” list of decisions and classifying the matters based on the issue involved and the FCC rule in question.

Appeals involving the following issues were granted:

  • Granting Additional time to Respond to USAC with Information During Invoicing
  • Ministerial and/or Clerical Errors
  • Permissible Service Implementation Delay
  • Waiver of Appeal Filing Deadline
  • Waiver of Special Construction Service Delivery Deadline

Appeals involving the following issues were denied:

  • Late-Filed FCC Form 471 Applications
  • Late-Filed Invoice or Invoice Deadline Extension
  • Red Light Rule Violation
  • Untimely Filed Appeals or Waiver Requests

Five appeals were dismissed on reconsideration or to be filed with USAC.
