According to an Order published in the Federal Register at 74 FR 5107, January 29, 2009, the application fees charged to licensees and permittees by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will increase effective April 28, 2009 to reflect the change in the Consumer Price Index-Urban (CPI-U). Section 8(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended in the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1989, requires cost-of-living adjustments to the application fee schedule every two years after October 1, 1991. Increases in the dollar amount of all section 8 application fees are based on the percentage change in the CPI-U from the date of enactment of the legislation. The new Schedule of Application Fees reflects the net change in the CPI-U of 4.9 percent, calculated from October 2005 through October 2007 in accordance with previously § 1.1115 (currently § 1.1117) of part 1 of the Commission's rules.

Wireless Telecommunications Services application fees that have an associated regulatory fee that must be paid at the time of application filing are noted by an asterisk in the Schedule. Please refer to the most recent Wireless Telecommunications Bureau Fee Filing Guide for the total fee that is due for these specific services.
