1. In this document, the Commission addresses a joint motion filed by Wilson Electronics, Inc. and Verizon Wireless (filed June 16, 2011) requesting a thirty-day extension of the time period to file comments in this rulemaking to allow them additional time to “work through the many complicated technical issues presented” and “work towards a solution that has the potential to benefit both booster manufacturers and wireless carriers.” The Commission, in this instance, finds that providing a limited extension will serve the public interest by allowing parties to discuss the complex technical issues at stake and develop consensus approaches that benefit consumers, and is therefore extending the deadline for all comments and reply comments to July 25, and August 24, 2011, respectively.
2. Pursuant to section 4(i) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 154(i), and section 1.46 of the Commission's rules, 47 CFR 1.46, the joint request of Wilson Electronics, Inc. and Verizon Wireless, filed on June 16, 2011, is Granted and the deadline for filing comments in response to the NPRM is Extended to July 25, 2011, and the deadline for filing reply comments is Extended to August 24, 2011.
3. This action is taken under delegated authority pursuant to sections 0.131 and 0.331 of the Commission's rules, 47 CFR 0.131, 0.331.
4. A copy of the NPRM, including the Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis, Has Been Sent to the Chief Counsel of Advocacy of the Small Business Administration.Start Signature
