The Enforcement Bureau of the Commission released an Order announcing that it has entered into a Consent Decree with AT&T to resolve its investigation into whether AT&T operated 26 common carrier fixed point-to-point microwave stations for several years at variance from the stations’ authorizations.  AT&T admitted that it operated the stations without proper authorization for periods ranging from three and a half years to over four years.  AT&T will pay a $450,000 civil penalty and agrees to implement a robust compliance plan for future acquired microwave licenses.

The Consent Decree terminates the investigation into AT&T’s operation of wireless stations and failure to provide license modification notices.
