PS Licensing Orders

On January 3, the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB) issued multiple orders in which they: 
1. Denied untimely construction certifications/Petitions for Reconsideration when the facilities had not been built by the deadline (800 MHz - Butler County, Pennsylvania and VHF - Mt. Hope/Funks Grove Fire Department); 
2. Granted a timely request for a 700 MHz construction extension when Nassau County, New York demonstrated diligence in completing its system; 
3. Granted an assignment supported by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) from a bankrupt entity to the Zayo Group of 42 microwave systems used to deliver broadband to some rural Colorado communities, but referred the matter to the Enforcement Bureau since Zayo had waited more than 18 months to file the assignment application; and 
4. Granted requests from Longmont, Colorado and Lago Vista, Texas to expand the service contours of their Travelers’ Information Stations.
