The information requested in Parts 1, 2, and 101 of the Commission's rules establish rules and policies for Local Multipoint Distribution Service (LMDS). The information is used by the Commission staff in carrying out its duties to determine the technical, legal and other qualifications of applicants to operate and remain licensed to operate a station in the LMDS. Specifically, the frequency coordination information requested pursuant to Section 101.103 of the Commission's Rules is necessary to facilitate the rendition of communication service on an interference-free basis in each service area. The frequency coordination procedures ensure that LMDS applicants and licensees have the information necessary to cooperate in the selection and use of frequencies assigned in order to minimize interference and thereby obtain the most effective use of the spectrum. The information is also necessary for the Commission staff to resolve interference conflicts that cannot be settled between or among the affected applicants and licensees. For LMDS licensees seeking renewal, the information requested pursuant to Section 101.1011 of the Commission's Rules is necessary for the Commission staff to determine whether a licensee has provided sufficient evidence of substantial service during its license term and has substantially complied with the Communications Act and with applicable Commission rules and policies.
