SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This is a summary of the Bureau's public 
notice, WC Docket No. 05-25, RM-10593, DA 15-382, released March 27, 
2015. This document does not contain information collection(s) subject 
to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), Public Law 104-13. In 
addition, therefore, it does not contain any new or modified 
``information collection burden[s] for small business concerns with 
fewer than 25 employees,'' pursuant to the Small Business Paperwork 
Relief Act of 2002. The complete text of this document is available for 
public inspection and copying from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET Monday 
through Thursday or from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. ET on Fridays in the 
FCC Reference Information Center, 445 12th Street SW., Room CY-A257, 
Washington, DC 20554. The complete text is also available on the 
Commission's Web site at http://wireless.fcc.gov, or by using the 
search function on the ECFS Web page at http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/ecfs/.

SUMMARY: On March 27, 2015, the Commission released a public notice 
extending the deadlines for filing comments and reply comments in 
response to Section IV.B of the Special Access FNPRM in the 
Commission's special access rulemaking proceeding until July 1, 2015 
and July 22, 2015, respectively. On December 11, 2012, the Commission 
adopted an order requiring providers and purchasers of special access 
and certain entities providing ``best efforts'' service to submit data 
and information for a comprehensive evaluation of the special access 
market and, in Section IV.B of the accompanying Special Access FNPRM, 
sought comment on changes to its rules for special access services 
provided by incumbent local exchange carriers in price cap areas. The 
process for facilitating public access to the data consistent with the 
protective order released on October 1, 2014 is ongoing but the data is 
not yet available, and there is insufficient time for the public to 
access and review this information before filing comment and reply 
comments. The Bureau therefore extends the deadline for filing comments 
until July 1, 2015 and reply comments until July 22, 2015.

Federal Communications Commission.
Pamela Arluk,
Acting Chief, Pricing Policy Division, Wireline Competition Bureau.
