1.      TC15-053     In the Matter of the Request of Long Lines Wireless, LLC for Certification Regarding its Use of Federal Universal Service Support (Staff Analyst: Joseph Rezac; Staff Attorney: Adam de Hueck)

On July 7, 2015, the Commission received an application from Long Lines Wireless, LLC requesting the Commission to issue a certification to the FCC and USAC indicating it is in compliance with 47 U.S.C. Section 254(e) and should receive all federal universal service support determined for distribution to the Company. On August 17, 2015, the Company responded to Staff’s data request. On September 1, 2015, at its regularly scheduled meeting, the Commission granted certification and requested the Company provide the correspondence from USAC that stated the Company was required to obtain certification. On September 11, 2015, the Company filed a Request to Reconsider the Order.

     TODAY, Shall the Commission reconsider its decision? If so, what is the Commission’s decision?
