SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In a final rule published on Tuesday, June 3, 2014 (79 FR 31877), the revision description of § 63.18(k) incorrectly states that “Section 63.18 is amended by revising paragraph (k) introductory text,” instead of correctly stating that “Section 63.18 is amended by revising paragraph (k),” leading the published final regulation § 63.18(k) to incorrectly keep subparagraphs (1)-(3), which should be removed. This correcting amendment document removes subparagraphs (1)-(3) of § 63.18(k).

Under § 63.10(a), the Commission presumes, subject to rebuttal, that a foreign carrier lacks market power in a particular foreign country if the applicant demonstrates that the foreign carrier lacks 50 percent market share in international transport facilities or services, including cable landing station access and backhaul facilities, intercity facilities or services, and local access facilities or services on the foreign end of a particular route.
