800 MHz Rebanding Dispute Notification, Certifications Due Jan. 15
Monday, January 06, 2020 | Comments

The FCC reminded 800 MHz licensees engaged in rebanding that licensees must submit notifications of unresolved disputes or executed completion certifications by Jan. 15.

The notifications are part of streamlined 800 MHz reconfiguration rules to reduce administrative costs and accelerate the conclusion of the 800 MHz band reconfiguration program released in October.

The streamlining order required rebanding 800 MHz licensees that have completed physical reconfiguration and have unresolved disputes with Sprint to notify Sprint and the 800 MHz Transition Administrator (TA) within 20 business days of the effective date of the order. The commission also required licensees that have completed physical reconfiguration and have no unresolved disputes with Sprint but have not provided a completion certification to Sprint to submit an executed completion certification to Sprint within 20 business days of the effective date of the order.

The effective date of the 800 MHz rebanding streamlining order was Dec. 16, and the day after the effective date of the order establishes the start of the 20-business day period.

Failure to file a timely notification or completion certification will result in the FCC, upon appropriate verification, deeming the licensee to have completed rebanding, and all of the licensee’s rights under the commission’s 800 MHz rebanding orders, including the right to the TA’s dispute resolution process and reimbursement of costs, will be terminated.
