A Public Notice has been released asking that any carriers with a currently pending Lifeline compliance plan request or petition for designation as a Lifeline-only ETC submit to the Wireline Bureau by June 7, 2016 an affirmative written statement that the carrier remains interested in having the Bureau review its application. The affirmative statement need only attest to the carrier’s continued desire to have the application reviewed, and does not need to produce additional information.

Affirmations must be filed in WC Docket No. 09-197 and one copy must be sent via email or mail to the following: Christian Hoefly, Telecommunications Access Policy Division, Wireline Competition Bureau, 445 12th Street, SW, Room 5-B441A, Washington, D.C. 20554; e-mail: [email protected].

Any pending requests or petitions that are not affirmed will be denied without prejudice.
