On June 15, 2007, the Federal Communications Commission (“Commission”), adopted and released a Memorandum Opinion and Order (MO&O) in FCC 07-103. In the MO&O, the Commission denied a petition for rulemaking to extend the requirement that all cellular radiotelephone licensees provide analog service to subscribers and roamers whose equipment conforms to the Advanced Mobile Phone Service (AMPS) standard. This requirement will sunset on February 18, 2008. In the MO&O, the Commission also directed cellular radiotelephone service licensees to notify their remaining analog subscribers of the sunset date and of their intention to discontinue AMPS-compatible analog service at least four months before such discontinuance, and a second time, at least 30 days before such discontinuance (the “consumer-notice requirement”).
