C. Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis

    5. An initial regulatory flexibility analysis (IRFA) is contained 
in this summary. Comments to the IRFA must be identified as responses 
to the IRFA and filed by the deadlines for comments on the Notice. The 
Commission will send a copy of the Notice, including the IRFA, to the 
Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration.

D. Initial Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 Analysis

    6. This document does not contain proposed information collection 
requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 
104-13. In addition, therefore, it does not contain any proposed 
information collection burden for small business concerns with fewer 
than 25 employees, pursuant to the Small Business Paperwork Relief Act 
of 2002, Public Law 107-198, see 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(4).

II. Introduction

    7. In this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, we seek comment on the 
Commission's proposed regulatory fees for fiscal year (FY) 2018. We 
propose to collect $322,035,000 in regulatory fees for FY 2018, as 
detailed in the proposed fee schedules attached in Table 2.

III. Background

    8. The Commission is required by Congress to assess regulatory fees 
each year in an amount that can reasonably be expected to equal the 
amount of its appropriation.\1\ Regulatory fees, mandated by Congress, 
are collected ``to recover the costs of . . . enforcement activities, 
policy and rulemaking activities, user information services, and 
international activities.'' \2\ Regulatory fees are to ``be derived by 
determining the full-time equivalent number of employees performing'' 
these activities, ``adjusted to take into account factors that are 
reasonably related to the benefits provided to the payer of the fee by 
the Commission's activities . . . .'' \3\ Regulatory fees recover 
direct costs, such as salary and expenses; indirect costs, such as 
overhead functions; and support costs, such as rent, utilities, and 
equipment.\4\ Regulatory fees also cover the costs incurred in 
regulating entities that are statutorily exempt from paying regulatory 
fees,\5\ entities whose regulatory fees are waived,\6\ and entities 
providing services for which we do not assess regulatory fees.

    \2\ 47 U.S.C. 159(a).
    \3\ 47 U.S.C. 159(b)(1)(A).
    \4\ Assessment and Collection of Regulatory Fees for Fiscal Year 
2004, Report and Order, 19 FCC Rcd 11662, 11666, para. 11 (2004) (FY 
2004 Report and Order).
    \5\ For example, governmental and nonprofit entities are exempt 
from regulatory fees under section 9(h). 47 U.S.C. 159(h); 47 CFR 
1.1162.
    \6\ 47 CFR 1.1166.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    9. Congress sets the amount of regulatory fees the Commission must 
collect each year in the Commission's fiscal year appropriations. 
Section 9(a)(2) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended 
(Communications Act or Act) requires the Commission to collect fees 
sufficient to offset the amount appropriated.\7\ To calculate 
regulatory fees, the Commission allocates the total collection target 
across all regulatory fee categories. The allocation of fees to fee 
categories is based on the Commission's calculation of Full Time 
Employees (FTEs) in each regulatory fee category.\8\ FTEs are 
classified as ``direct'' if the employee is in one of the four ``core'' 
bureaus; otherwise, that employee is considered an ``indirect'' FTE.\9\ 
The total FTEs for each fee category includes the direct FTEs 
associated with that category, plus a proportional allocation of 
indirect FTEs.\10\ The Commission then allocates the total amount to be 
collected among the various regulatory fee categories within each of 
the core bureaus. Each regulatee within a fee category pays its 
proportionate share based on an objective measure (e.g., revenues or 
number of subscribers).\11\ These calculations are illustrated in Table 
1. The sources for the unit estimates that are used in these 
calculations are listed in Table 3.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ 47 U.S.C. 159(a)(2).
    \8\ One FTE is a unit of measure equal to the work performed 
annually by a full time person (working a 40 hour workweek for a 
full year) assigned to the particular job, and subject to agency 
personnel staffing limitations established by the U.S. Office of 
Management and Budget.
    \9\ The core bureaus, which have the direct FTEs, are the 
Wireline Competition Bureau (124), Wireless Telecommunications 
Bureau (101), Media Bureau (135), and part of the International 
Bureau (24). The indirect FTEs are the employees from the following 
bureaus and offices: Enforcement Bureau (203), Consumer & 
Governmental Affairs Bureau (136), Public Safety and Homeland 
Security Bureau (104), part of the International Bureau (72), part 
of the Wireline Competition Bureau (38), Chairman and Commissioners' 
offices (15), Office of the Managing Director (149), Office of 
General Counsel (74), Office of the Inspector General (46), Office 
of Communications Business Opportunities (8), Office of Engineering 
and Technology (73), Office of Legislative Affairs (9), Office of 
Strategic Planning and Policy Analysis (15), Office of Workplace 
Diversity (5), Office of Media Relations (14), and Office of 
Administrative Law Judges (4).
    \10\ The Commission observed in the FY 2013 Report and Order 
that ``the high percentage of the indirect FTEs is indicative of the 
fact that many Commission activities and costs are not limited to a 
particular fee category and instead benefit the Commission as a 
whole.'' See Assessment and Collection of Regulatory Fees for Fiscal 
Year 2013, Report and Order, 28 FCC Rcd 12351, 12357, para. 17 
(2013) (FY 2013 Report and Order).
    \11\ See Procedures for Assessment and Collection of Regulatory 
Fees, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, 27 FCC Rcd 8458, 8461-62, 
paras. 8-11 (2012) (FY 2012 NPRM).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    10. The Commission annually reviews the regulatory fee schedule, 
proposes changes to the schedule to reflect changes in the amount of 
its appropriation, and proposes increases or decreases to the schedule 
of regulatory fees.\12\ The Commission will make changes to the 
regulatory fee schedule ``if the Commission determines that the 
schedule requires amendment to comply with the requirements'' \13\ of 
section 9(b)(1)(A) of the Act.\14\ The Commission may also add, delete, 
or reclassify services in the fee schedule to reflect additions, 
deletions, or changes in the nature of its services ``as a consequence 
of Commission rulemaking proceedings or changes in law.'' \15\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    11. As part of its annual review, the Commission regularly seeks to 
improve its regulatory fee analysis.\16\ For

[[Page 27848]]

example, in the FY 2014 Report and Order, the Commission adopted a new 
regulatory fee subcategory for toll free numbers within the Interstate 
Telecommunications Service Provider (ITSP) \17\ category \18\ and 
increased the de minimis threshold from $10 to $500 for annual 
regulatory fee payors.\19\ In the FY 2015 Report and Order, the 
Commission adopted a regulatory fee for DBS, as a subcategory of the 
cable television and IPTV fee category,\20\ and for toll-free 
numbers,\21\ and reallocated four International Bureau FTEs from direct 
to indirect.\22\ In the FY 2016 Report and Order, the Commission 
adjusted regulatory fees for radio and television broadcasters, based 
on the type and class of service and on the population served.\23\ In 
the FY 2017 Report and Order, the Commission reallocated as indirect 38 
FTEs in the Wireline Competition Bureau assigned to work on non-high 
cost programs of the Universal Service Fund.\24\ The Commission also 
reallocated for regulatory fee purposes, four FTEs assigned to work on 
numbering issues from the Wireline Competition Bureau to the Wireless 
Telecommunications Bureau; \25\ included non-common carrier terrestrial 
international bearer circuits (IBCs) in the regulatory fee methodology; 
\26\ and increased the de minimis threshold to $1,000 for annual 
regulatory fee payors.\27\ In this proceeding, the Commission again 
seeks to improve its regulatory fee analysis.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ In the FY 2013 Report and Order, the Commission adopted 
updated FTE allocations to more accurately reflect the number of 
FTEs working on regulation and oversight of regulatees in the fee 
categories. FY 2013 Report and Order, 28 FCC Rcd at 12354-58, paras. 
10-20. This was recommended in a report issued by the Government 
Accountability Office (GAO) in 2012. See GAO ``Federal 
Communications Commission Regulatory Fee Process Needs to be 
Updated,'' GAO-12-686 (Aug. 2012) (GAO Report) at 36, http://www.gao.gov/products/GAO-12-686. The Commission has since updated 
the FTE allocations annually. In addition, the Commission 
reallocated some FTEs from the International Bureau as indirect; 
combined the UHF and VHF television stations into one regulatory fee 
category; and added internet Protocol Television (IPTV) to the cable 
television regulatory fee category. FY 2013 Report and Order, 28 FCC 
Rcd at 12355-63, paras. 13-33.
    \17\ The ITSP category includes interexchange carriers (IXCs), 
incumbent local exchange carriers, toll resellers, and other IXC 
service providers.

IV. Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Discussion--FY 2018 Regulatory Fees

    13. In this FY 2018 NPRM, we seek comment on a regulatory fee 
schedule for FY 2018, pursuant to section 9 of the Communications 
Act,\29\ in order to collect $322,035,000 in regulatory fees. These 
regulatory fees are mandated by Congress and are collected ``to recover 
the costs of . . . enforcement activities, policy and rulemaking 
activities, user information services, and international activities.'' 
\30\ Of this amount, we project approximately $20.13 million (6.25 
percent of the total FTE allocation) in fees from International Bureau 
regulatees; \31\ $84.70 million (26.3 percent of the total FTE 
allocation) in fees from Wireless Telecommunications Bureau regulatees; 
\32\ $103.99 million (32.29 percent of the total FTE allocation) from 
Wireline Competition Bureau regulatees; \33\ and $113.22 million (35.16 
percent of the total FTE allocation) from Media Bureau regulatees.\34\ 
These regulatory fees are due in September 2018. We seek comment on the 
schedule of regulatory fees for FY 2018 in Table 2. For comparison 
purposes, the FY 2017 regulatory fee rates are listed in Table 5. We 
discuss and seek comment on several specific issues below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \29\ 47 U.S.C. 159.
    \30\ 47 U.S.C. 159(a).
    \31\ Includes satellites, earth stations, and international 
bearer circuits (submarine cable systems and satellite and 
terrestrial bearer circuits).
    \32\ Includes Commercial Mobile Radio Service (CMRS), CMRS 
messaging, Broadband Radio Service/Local Multipoint Distribution 
Service (BRS/LMDS), and multi-year wireless licensees.
    \33\ Includes ITSP and toll free numbers.
    \34\ Includes AM radio, FM radio, television (including low 
power and Class A), TV/FM translators and boosters, cable television 
and IPTV, DBS, and Cable Television Relay Service (CARS) licenses.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) Regulatory Fees
    14. DBS service is a nationally distributed subscription service 
that delivers video and audio programming via satellite to a small 
parabolic dish antenna at the subscriber's location. The two DBS 
providers, AT&T and DISH Network, are multichannel video programming 
distributors (MVPDs).\35\ The proposed fee schedule in Table 2 includes 
an updated regulatory fee for DBS, a subcategory in the cable 
television and IPTV category.\36\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \35\ MVPD is defined in section 602(13) of the Act, 47 U.S.C. 
522(13).
    \36\ DBS also pays a regulatory fee per operational station in 
geostationary orbit.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    15. In 2015, the Commission adopted an initial regulatory fee for 
DBS, as a subcategory in the cable television and IPTV category, of 12 
cents per year per subscriber, or one cent per month.\37\ This 
regulatory fee subcategory was based on Media Bureau FTE activity 
involving regulation and oversight of all MVPDs, which included DBS 
providers.\38\ The Commission concluded there was no reasonable basis 
to continue to exclude DBS providers from sharing in the cost of MVPD 
oversight and regulation with cable television and IPTV.\39\ The 
Commission also committed to updating the regulatory fee rate as 
necessary to ensure an appropriate level of regulatory fees due to the 
Media Bureau resources dedicated to regulation and oversight of MVPDs, 
including DBS.\40\ Such examination reflected a GAO report, which 
recommended that the Commission ``regularly update analyses to ensure 
that fees are set based on

[[Page 27849]]

relevant information.'' \41\ In lieu of directly including DBS 
providers in the cable television/IPTV category, the Commission 
initially phased in the Media Bureau-based regulatory fee for DBS, 
starting at 12 cents per subscriber per year. Since then, the 
Commission has incrementally increased the DBS regulatory fee, bringing 
it closer to the per-subscriber rate paid by cable television and IPTV.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    16. Based on our analysis of the cable television/IPTV category, we 
seek comment on whether Media Bureau resources devoted to MVPD 
proceedings, including DBS,\42\ support further revising the DBS 
regulatory fee rate to continue to bring the DBS rate closer to the 
cable television/IPTV rate, which, for FY 2018, is proposed to be 77 
cents per subscriber per year. Specifically, how many FTEs does the 
Media Bureau devote to DBS as compared to cable? How many FTEs does the 
Media Bureau devote to DBS as compared to IPTV? Are the regulations 
imposed on both cable and DBS similar, or does one distributor face a 
higher regulatory burden? Are the regulations imposed on both IPTV and 
DBS similar, or does one distributor face a higher regulatory burden? 
How do such regulations translate to FTEs? In addition to FTEs, the Act 
requires us to take into account ``factors that are reasonably related 
to the benefits provided to the payor of the fee by the Commission's 
activities'' \43\ Do DBS operators benefit more or less from 
Commission-issued licenses than cable operators and IPTV providers? How 
does the Commission's long-standing commitment to competitive 
neutrality impact our rate calculations? Additionally, we have 
previously incrementally increased the DBS regulatory fee to avoid 
potential consumer rate shock. Does that concern remain valid?

    17. We seek comment on a DBS regulatory fee rate of 48 cents per 
subscriber per year, as set forth in the proposed fee schedule in Table 
2. We invite comment on whether the proposed rate is appropriate. 
Ultimately, this will be an increase of ten cents from the FY 2017 DBS 
rate. Is such an increase justified based on Commission resources 
allocated to DBS, and the related benefits provided to DBS providers by 
the Commission's activities? Or is such an increase inappropriate 
because there is a reasonable basis to differentiate between DBS 
providers and cable television and IPTV?
2. Broadcast Television Licenses, Post-Incentive Auction
    18. On March 29, 2016, the Commission commenced the incentive 
auction to allow broadcast television stations to make their spectrum 
available for wireless broadband licensees. On April 13, 2017, the 
Commission released a Public Notice formally closing the auction,\44\ 
and beginning the 39-month post-auction transition period during which 
some broadcast television stations will transition to new channel 
assignments and other stations will go off the air. Licensees who held 
a broadcast television station license on October 1, 2017 are reminded 
that they are responsible for regulatory fees for that license.\45\ 
Licensees who have relinquished their licenses by September 30, 2017 
are not responsible for regulatory fees for the cancelled license.\46\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Terrestrial and Satellite International Bearer Circuits
    19. In 2009, the Commission adopted a new methodology for 
calculating submarine cable international bearer circuits regulatory 
fees by eliminating the distinction between common carriers and non-
common carriers and assessing a flat per cable landing license fee \47\ 
for all submarine cable systems, with higher fees for larger submarine 
cable systems and lower fees for smaller systems.\48\ In the Submarine 
Cable Order, the Commission adopted a tiered system using gigabits per 
second (Gbps) increments (instead of 64 kbps).\49\ The Commission did 
not revise the terrestrial and satellite IBC regulatory fee methodology 
then because of the ``complexity of the legal, policy and equity issues 
involved.'' \50\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \47\ The prior rule assessed regulatory fees on common carriers 
based on the number of active circuits. See, e.g., Assessment and 
Collection of Regulatory Fees for Fiscal Year 1996, Report and 
Order, 11 FCC Rcd 18774, 18795, para. 58 (1996) (assessing IBC fees 
on facilities-based common carriers activating a circuit in any 
transmission facility).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    20. In the FY 2017 NPRM, however, the Commission sought comment on 
a proposal to adopt a tiered regulatory fee rate structure for all 
terrestrial and satellite IBCs, similar to the submarine cable tiered 
regulatory fee methodology, based on capacity \51\ and including both 
common carrier and non-common carrier IBCs.\52\ In the FY 2017 Report 
and Order, the Commission concluded that a methodology for terrestrial 
and satellite IBC regulatory fees based on active circuits should be 
consistent with the submarine cable methodology and include common 
carrier and non-common carrier terrestrial IBCs.\53\ In our Further 
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, we sought comment on a tiered 
methodology for terrestrial and satellite IBCs.\54\ We proposed 
adopting, for terrestrial and satellite IBCs, the five tiers adopted 
for submarine cable systems.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \51\ The submarine cable fee is based on capacity per system; 
the terrestrial and satellite international bearer circuit 
regulatory fee would be based on overall active circuits.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    21. CenturyLink\55\ contends that we should adopt the two-tier 
methodology proposed earlier by Level 3.\56\ CenturyLink argues that a 
two-tier system is sufficient to ensure that the satellite and 
terrestrial IBC regulatory fees do not serve as a barrier to entry for 
smaller providers while ensuring that the larger providers pay a fair 
and equitable portion of regulatory fees.\57\ According to CenturyLink, 
a two-tier system would reduce the incentive to

[[Page 27850]]

underreport and would be less burdensome because a carrier would be 
able to easily determine which tier it falls into, without having to 
count each of its circuits annually.\58\ AT&T supports a multi-tiered 
rate structure and contends that, due to the wide disparity in 
satellite and terrestrial providers' IBC circuit volumes, a two-tiered 
fee structure would likely result in fee increases for smaller 
carriers.\59\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    22. SIA opposes a tiered approach for satellite IBC regulatory fees 
and contends that a tiered rate structure would result in ``massive 
overcharges'' and is ``arbitrary and capricious.'' \60\ We recognize 
SIA's concerns that a tiered rate structure such as that proposed by 
Level 3 could result in higher fees if carriers with fewer active 
circuits are grouped with carriers with a much larger quantity of 
active circuits. The multi-tier rate structure would take that concern 
into consideration and be designed to ensure that providers' fees are 
assessed at an appropriate level, based on the number of active 
circuits. A multi-tier rate structure would be based on the number of 
active circuits, but grouped into levels or tiers. This would be more 
equitable than a two-tiered system because it better takes into account 
the quantity of active circuits of each regulatee when determining a 
fee payment. This fee structure would be less burdensome to calculate 
because the service providers would not have to count each active 
circuit on December 31 of each year (as long as they know which tier 
they are in), yet this fee structure is also ``reasonably related to 
the benefits provided to the payer of the fee by the Commission's 
activities . . . .'' \61\ As the Commission observed when adopting a 
five-tier fee structure for submarine cable, the tiered methodology 
will be competitively neutral, easier for the Commission to administer, 
and promote better compliance by providers.\62\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    23. We do not, however, have sufficient information at this time to 
establish an appropriate tier structure for terrestrial and satellite 
IBCs. In the FY 2017 Report and Order, we determined that IBCs should 
be assessed regulatory fees for non-common carrier as well as common 
carrier terrestrial circuits. We do not yet have information on the 
number of non-common carrier terrestrial circuits for which fees will 
be paid. The number of non-common carrier terrestrial circuits will 
affect the rate and the rate structure of the tiers for this category. 
Consequently, for FY 2018, we will continue to assess the fee on a per-
circuit basis, although we propose to use Gbps as the measurement 
rather than 64 kbps. In Table 2, we list the proposed per-circuit rate 
for IBCs for FY 2018. With the information we will obtain from payors 
in September 2018, we should have sufficient information to be able to 
propose a tiered rate structure for FY 2019, and we seek comment on any 
other issues that commenters believe we should consider when making 
such a proposal.

B. Methodology for FY 2019 Regulatory Fee Calculations

1. Broadcast Television Stations
    24. Full service television station licensees are subject to 
regulatory fee payments based on the market served. Broadcast full 
service television stations pay regulatory fees based on the schedule 
of regulatory fees established in section 9(g) of the Communications 
Act, which consolidated stations into market groupings 1-10, 11-25, 26-
50, 51-100, and remaining markets.\63\ The Commission subsequently 
established a separate fee category for satellite television 
stations.\64\ The Commission uses Nielsen Designated Market Areas 
(DMAs) to define the market a station serves. For FY 2017, the 
regulatory fees for full service stations ranged from $1,725, for 
satellite stations, to $59,750, for stations in markets 1-10.

    \64\ Assessment and Collection of Regulatory Fees for Fiscal 
Year 1995, Report and Order, 10 FCC Rcd 13512, 13534, para. 60 
(1995).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    25. We seek comment on whether we can more accurately ascertain the 
actual market served by a station for purposes of assessing regulatory 
fees by examining the actual population covered by the station's 
contours rather than using DMAs. If adopted, this proposal would 
constitutes a permitted amendment as defined in section 9(b)(3) of the 
Act,\65\ and pursuant to section 9(b)(4)(B), it must be submitted to 
Congress at least 90 days before it would become effective.\66\ As 
such, we seek comment on whether, for FY 2019, regulatory fees should 
be assessed for full-power broadcast television stations based on the 
population covered by the station's contour, instead of DMAs. Such an 
approach is consistent with the methodology used for AM and FM 
broadcasters, in which fees are based on population served and the 
class of service based on the signal contours defined in Table 4. In 
addition, this proposal would address concerns about the assessment of 
regulatory fees for broadcast television satellite stations.\67\ We 
seek comment on whether this proposal would ``take into account factors 
that are reasonably related to the benefits provided to the payer of 
the fee by the Commission's activities . . . .'' \68\ Commenters should 
also discuss whether this new methodology would more accurately reflect 
a station's actual market. We believe that this population-based 
approach would allow us to take into account the lower population 
served by stations located in the fringes of a DMA. We seek comment on 
this view. Alternatively, do DMAs, which account for MVPD carriage, 
better reflect a television station's reach, or is there some other 
method by which we should calculate broadcast television regulatory 
fees? Commenters should also discuss whether, if we adopt this 
approach, we should phase in the implementation of this methodology 
over a two-year, or longer, period of time. For example, we could limit 
an increase or decrease in regulatory fees for the first year of 
implementation.

22 (discussing concerns about the regulatory fees assessed on 
broadcast satellite television stations serving small markets at the 
fringe of larger DMAs).
    \68\ 47 U.S.C. 159(b)(1)(A). When section 9 was adopted, the 
total FTEs were to be calculated based on the number of FTEs in the 
Private Radio Bureau, Mass Media Bureau, and Common Carrier Bureau. 
(The names of these bureaus were subsequently changed.) Satellites 
and submarine cable were regulated through the Common Carrier Bureau 
before the International Bureau was created.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    26. If adopted, this proposal would enable broadcasters to review 
population data for their service area. The data would be extracted 
from the TVStudy database, based on a station's projected noise-limited 
service contour, consistent with our rules.\69\ An example from 
existing data is attached as Table 6. https://www.fcc.gov/media/television/video-division We would multiply the population by a factor 
for which we would seek comment, e.g., 0.63 cents ($.0063). We would, 
in our annual Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, refer broadcasters to the 
population data and the factor proposed so that they could determine 
how their regulatory fees would be calculated.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \69\ 47 CFR 73.622(e).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    27. Alternatively, we seek comment on whether, under the proposed 
methodology, we should calculate regulatory fees based on the specific 
population covered by the contour for each station, or whether we 
should group broadcast stations into tiers, based on the population, 
with the same

[[Page 27851]]

regulatory fee for each station within a group or tier. Commenters 
supporting a tiered approach should discuss how many tiers would be 
reasonable. For example, would the tiers currently used for AM and FM 
broadcasters (<25,000, 25,001-75,000, 75,001-150,000, 150,001-500,000, 
500,001-1,200,000, 1,200,001-3,000,000, 3,000,001-6,000,00, >6,000,000) 
be reasonable?
    28. We tentatively conclude that revising our methodology for 
assessing regulatory fees for broadcast television stations would be a 
permitted amendment as defined in section 9(b)(3) of the Act,\70\ and 
pursuant to section 9(b)(4)(B), it must be submitted to Congress at 
least 90 days before it would become effective.\71\ Therefore, for FY 
2018, we will assess regulatory fees for all broadcast television 
stations using the same methodology as we did for FY 2017. The proposed 
regulatory fees for broadcast television stations for FY 2018 are in 
Table 2.

2. Small Satellites
    29. The Commission recently proposed revisions to our rules to 
facilitate commercial deployment of a class of satellites known 
colloquially as ``small satellites.'' \72\ Small satellites typically 
have a number of characteristics that distinguish them from traditional 
non-geostationary satellite orbit (NGSO) satellite systems, such as 
having a lower mass, shorter duration mission, and more limited 
spectrum needs. The proposed rules are designed to lower the regulatory 
burden involved in licensing small satellites and reduce application 
processing times. Because we expect that small satellite applications 
will take less time and fewer Commission resources to process than 
traditional satellite systems, the Commission, in the Small Satellite 
NPRM, proposed to establish a new fee for small satellite applications 
of $30,000--well below the application fee of $454,705 for Low-Earth 
Orbit Satellite Systems.\73\ Consistent with development of a new 
application fee for small satellites, we seek comment on whether, for 
FY 2019, we should adopt a new regulatory fee category for small 
satellites. Entities authorized to operate NGSO systems under Part 25 
of our rules currently must pay an annual regulatory fee which, for FY 
2017, was $135,350 per operational system.\74\ We seek comment on 
whether the regulatory fee for small satellites should be 1/20th of the 
regulatory fee currently applicable to NGSO systems, consistent with 
the ratio of the application fee proposed for small satellites to the 
application fee currently applicable to NGSO systems. In discussing the 
appropriate regulatory fee for small satellites, commenters should take 
into consideration that this is a new industry sector typically 
involving relatively low-cost systems, as compared with traditional 
satellite systems, and a high regulatory fee could limit the commercial 
applications of small satellites.

    30. We tentatively conclude that adopting a new regulatory fee 
category for small satellites would be a permitted amendment as defined 
in section 9(b)(3) of the Act,\75\ and pursuant to section 9(b)(4)(B), 
it must be submitted to Congress at least 90 days before it would 
become effective.\76\

V. Procedural Matters

A. Payment of Regulatory Fees

1. Checks Will Not Be Accepted for Payment of Annual Regulatory Fees
    31. Pursuant to an Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
directive,\77\ the Commission is moving towards a paperless 
environment, extending to disbursement and collection of select federal 
government payments and receipts.\78\ In 2015, the Commission stopped 
accepting checks (including cashier's checks and money orders) and the 
accompanying hardcopy forms (e.g., Forms 159, 159-B, 159-E, 159-W) for 
the payment of regulatory fees.\79\ All regulatory fee payments must be 
made by online Automated Clearing House (ACH) payment, online credit 
card, or wire transfer. Any other form of payment (e.g., checks, 
cashier's checks, or money orders) will be rejected. For payments by 
wire, a Form 159-E should still be transmitted via fax so that the 
Commission can associate the wire payment with the correct regulatory 
fee information.

See 47 CFR 1.1158.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Credit Card Transaction Levels
    32. Since June 1, 2015, in accordance with U.S. Treasury 
Announcement No. A-2014-04 (July 2014), the amount that can be charged 
on a credit card for transactions with federal agencies has is 
$24,999.99.\80\ Transactions greater than $24,999.99 will be rejected. 
This limit applies to single payments or bundled payments of more than 
one bill. Multiple transactions to a single agency in one day may be 
aggregated and treated as a single transaction subject to the 
$24,999.99 limit. Customers who wish to pay an amount greater than 
$24,999.99 should consider available electronic alternatives such as 
Visa or MasterCard debit cards, ACH debits from a bank account, and 
wire transfers. Each of these payment options is available after filing 
regulatory fee information in Fee Filer. Further details will be 
provided regarding payment methods and procedures at the time of FY 
2018 regulatory fee collection in Fact Sheets, available at https://www.fcc.gov/regfees.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \80\ Customers who owe an amount on a bill, debt, or other 
obligation due to the federal government are prohibited from 
splitting the total amount due into multiple payments. Splitting an 
amount owed into several payment transactions violates the credit 
card network and Fiscal Service rules. An amount owed that exceeds 
the Fiscal Service maximum dollar amount, $24,999.99, may not be 
split into two or more payment transactions in the same day by using 
one or multiple cards. Also, an amount owed that exceeds the Fiscal 
Service maximum dollar amount may not be split into two or more 
transactions over multiple days by using one or more cards.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Payment Methods
    33. During the fee season for collecting FY 2018 regulatory fees, 
regulatees can pay their fees by credit card through Pay.gov,\81\ ACH, 
debit card,\82\ or by wire transfer. Additional payment instructions 
are posted on the Commission's website at http://transition.fcc.gov/fees/regfees.html. The receiving bank for all wire payments is the U.S. 
Treasury, New York, New York. When making a wire transfer, regulatees 
must fax a copy of their Fee Filer generated Form 159-E to the Federal 
Communications Commission at (202) 418-2843 at least one hour before 
initiating the wire transfer (but on the

[[Page 27852]]

same business day) so as not to delay crediting their account. 
Regulatees should discuss arrangements (including bank closing 
schedules) with their bankers several days before they plan to make the 
wire transfer to allow sufficient time for the transfer to be initiated 
and completed before the deadline. Complete instructions for making 
wire payments are posted at http://transition.fcc.gov/fees/wiretran.html.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \81\ In accordance with U.S. Treasury Financial Manual 
Announcement No. A-2014-04 (July 2014), the amount that may be 
charged on a credit card for transactions with federal agencies has 
been reduced to $24,999.99.
    \82\ In accordance with U.S. Treasury Financial Manual 
Announcement No. A-2012-02, the maximum dollar-value limit for debit 
card transactions is eliminated. Only Visa and MasterCard branded 
debit cards are accepted by Pay.gov.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. De Minimis Regulatory Fees
    34. Under the Commission's de minimis rule for regulatory fee 
payments, a regulatee is exempt from paying regulatory fees if the sum 
total of all of its annual regulatory fee liabilities is $1,000 or less 
for the fiscal year. The de minimis threshold applies only to filers of 
annual regulatory fees, not regulatory fees paid through multi-year 
filings, and it is not a permanent exemption. Each regulatee will need 
to reevaluate the total annual fee liability each fiscal year to 
determine whether they meet the de minimis exemption.
5. Standard Fee Calculations and Payment Dates
    35. The Commission will accept fee payments made in advance of the 
window for the payment of regulatory fees. The responsibility for 
payment of fees by service category is as follows:
     Media Services: Regulatory fees must be paid for initial 
construction permits that were granted on or before October 1, 2017 for 
AM/FM radio stations, VHF/UHF full service television stations, and 
satellite television stations. Regulatory fees must be paid for all 
broadcast facility licenses granted on or before October 1, 2017.
     Wireline (Common Carrier) Services: Regulatory fees must 
be paid for authorizations that were granted on or before October 1, 
2017. In instances where a permit or license is transferred or assigned 
after October 1, 2017, responsibility for payment rests with the holder 
of the permit or license as of the fee due date. Audio bridging service 
providers are included in this category.\83\ For Responsible 
Organizations (RespOrgs) that manage Toll Free Numbers (TFN), 
regulatory fees should be paid on all working, assigned, and reserved 
toll free numbers as well as toll free numbers in any other status as 
defined in section 52.103 of the Commission's rules.\84\ The unit count 
should be based on toll free numbers managed by RespOrgs on or about 
December 31, 2017.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \83\ Audio bridging services are toll teleconferencing services.
    \84\ 47 CFR 52.103.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     Wireless Services: CMRS cellular, mobile, and messaging 
services (fees based on number of subscribers or telephone number 
count): Regulatory fees must be paid for authorizations that were 
granted on or before October 1, 2017. The number of subscribers, units, 
or telephone numbers on December 31, 2017 will be used as the basis 
from which to calculate the fee payment. In instances where a permit or 
license is transferred or assigned after October 1, 2017, 
responsibility for payment rests with the holder of the permit or 
license as of the fee due date.
     Wireless Services, Multi-year fees: The first eight 
regulatory fee categories in our Schedule of Regulatory Fees pay 
``small multi-year wireless regulatory fees.'' Entities pay these 
regulatory fees in advance for the entire amount period covered by the 
five-year or ten-year terms of their initial licenses, and pay 
regulatory fees again only when the license is renewed or a new license 
is obtained. We include these fee categories in our rulemaking to 
publicize our estimates of the number of ``small multi-year wireless'' 
licenses that will be renewed or newly obtained in FY 2018.
     Multichannel Video Programming Distributor Services (cable 
television operators, CARS licensees, DBS, and IPTV): Regulatory fees 
must be paid for the number of basic cable television subscribers as of 
December 31, 2017.\85\ Regulatory fees also must be paid for CARS 
licenses that were granted on or before October 1, 2017. In instances 
where a permit or license is transferred or assigned after October 1, 
2017, responsibility for payment rests with the holder of the permit or 
license as of the fee due date. For providers of Direct Broadcast 
Satellite (DBS) service and IPTV-based MVPDs, regulatory fees should be 
paid based on a subscriber count on or about December 31, 2017. In 
instances where a permit or license is transferred or assigned after 
October 1, 2017, responsibility for payment rests with the holder of 
the permit or license as of the fee due date.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \85\ Cable television system operators should compute their 
number of basic subscribers as follows: Number of single family 
dwellings + number of individual households in multiple dwelling 
unit (apartments, condominiums, mobile home parks, etc.) paying at 
the basic subscriber rate + bulk rate customers + courtesy and free 
service. Note: Bulk-Rate Customers = Total annual bulk-rate charge 
divided by basic annual subscription rate for individual households. 
Operators may base their count on ``a typical day in the last full 
week'' of December 2017, rather than on a count as of December 31, 
2017.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     International Services: Regulatory fees must be paid for 
(1) earth stations and (2) geostationary orbit space stations and non-
geostationary orbit satellite systems that were licensed and 
operational on or before October 1, 2017. In instances where a permit 
or license is transferred or assigned after October 1, 2017, 
responsibility for payment rests with the holder of the permit or 
license as of the fee due date.
     International Services (Submarine Cable Systems): 
Regulatory fees for submarine cable systems are to be paid on a per 
cable landing license basis based on circuit capacity as of December 
31, 2017. In instances where a license is transferred or assigned after 
October 1, 2017, responsibility for payment rests with the holder of 
the license as of the fee due date. For regulatory fee purposes, the 
allocation in FY 2018 will remain at 87.6 percent for submarine cable 
and 12.4 percent for satellite/terrestrial facilities.
     International Services (Terrestrial and Satellite 
Services): Regulatory fees for Terrestrial and Satellite IBCs are to be 
paid based on active (used or leased) international bearer circuits as 
of December 31, 2017 in any terrestrial or satellite transmission 
facility for the provision of service to an end user or resale carrier. 
When calculating the number of such active circuits, entities must 
include circuits used by themselves or their affiliates. For these 
purposes, ``active circuits'' include backup and redundant circuits as 
of December 31, 2017. Whether circuits are used specifically for voice 
or data is not relevant for purposes of determining that they are 
active circuits.\86\ In instances where a permit or license is 
transferred or assigned after October 1, 2017, responsibility for 
payment rests with the holder of the permit or license as of the fee 
due date. For regulatory fee purposes, the allocation in FY 2018 will 
remain at 87.6 percent for submarine cable and 12.4 percent for 
satellite/terrestrial facilities.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \86\ We encourage terrestrial and satellite service providers to 
seek guidance from the International Bureau's Telecommunications and 
Analysis Division to verify their particular IBC reporting processes 
to ensure that their calculation methods comply with our rules.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

B. Commercial Mobile Radio Service (CMRS) and Mobile Services 
Assessments

    36. The Commission will compile data from the Numbering Resource 
Utilization Forecast (NRUF) report that is based on ``assigned'' 
telephone number (subscriber) counts that have been adjusted for 
porting to net Type 0

[[Page 27853]]

ports (``in'' and ``out'').\87\ This information of telephone numbers 
(subscriber count) will be posted on the Commission's electronic filing 
and payment system (Fee Filer) along with the carrier's Operating 
Company Numbers (OCNs).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \87\ See Assessment and Collection of Regulatory Fees for Fiscal 
Year 2005, Report and Order and Order on Reconsideration, 20 FCC Rcd 
12259, 12264, paras. 38-44 (2005).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    37. A carrier wishing to revise its telephone number (subscriber) 
count can do so by accessing Fee Filer and follow the prompts to revise 
their telephone number counts. Any revisions to the telephone number 
counts should be accompanied by an explanation or supporting 
documentation.\88\ The Commission will then review the revised count 
and supporting documentation and either approve or disapprove the 
submission in Fee Filer. If the submission is disapproved, the 
Commission will contact the provider to afford the provider an 
opportunity to discuss its revised subscriber count and/or provide 
additional supporting documentation. If we receive no response from the 
provider, or we do not reverse our initial disapproval of the 
provider's revised count submission, the fee payment must be based on 
the number of subscribers listed initially in Fee Filer. Once the 
timeframe for revision has passed, the telephone number counts are 
final and are the basis upon which CMRS regulatory fees are to be paid. 
Providers can view their final telephone counts online in Fee Filer. A 
final CMRS assessment letter will not be mailed out.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \88\ In the supporting documentation, the provider will need to 
state a reason for the change, such as a purchase or sale of a 
subsidiary, the date of the transaction, and any other pertinent 
information that will help to justify a reason for the change.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    38. Because some carriers do not file the NRUF report, they may not 
see their telephone number counts in Fee Filer. In these instances, the 
carriers should compute their fee payment using the standard 
methodology that is currently in place for CMRS Wireless services 
(i.e., compute their telephone number counts as of December 31, 2017), 
and submit their fee payment accordingly. Whether a carrier reviews its 
telephone number counts in Fee Filer or not, the Commission reserves 
the right to audit the number of telephone numbers for which regulatory 
fees are paid. In the event that the Commission determines that the 
number of telephone numbers that are paid is inaccurate, the Commission 
will bill the carrier for the difference between what was paid and what 
should have been paid.

C. Enforcement

    39. To be considered timely, regulatory fee payments must be made 
electronically by the payment due date for regulatory fees. Section 
9(c) of the Act requires us to impose a late payment penalty of 25 
percent of the unpaid amount to be assessed on the first day following 
the deadline for filing these fees.\89\ Failure to pay regulatory fees 
and/or any late penalty will subject regulatees to sanctions, including 
those set forth in section 1.1910 of the Commission's rules,\90\ which 
generally requires the Commission to withhold action on ``applications, 
including on a petition for reconsideration or any application for 
review of a fee determination, or requests for authorization by any 
entity found to be delinquent in its debt to the Commission'' and in 
the DCIA.\91\ We also assess administrative processing charges on 
delinquent debts to recover additional costs incurred in processing and 
handling the debt pursuant to the DCIA and section 1.1940(d) of the 
Commission's rules.\92\ These administrative processing charges will be 
assessed on any delinquent regulatory fee, in addition to the 25 
percent late charge penalty. In the case of partial payments 
(underpayments) of regulatory fees, the payor will be given credit for 
the amount paid, but if it is later determined that the fee paid is 
incorrect or not timely paid, then the 25 percent late charge penalty 
(and other charges and/or sanctions, as appropriate) will be assessed 
on the portion that is not paid in a timely manner.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \89\ 47 U.S.C. 159(c).
    \90\ See 47 CFR 1.1910.
    \91\ Delinquent debt owed to the Commission triggers the ``red 
light rule,'' which places a hold on the processing of pending 
applications, fee offsets, and pending disbursement payments. 47 CFR 
1.1910, 1.1911, 1.1912. In 2004, the Commission adopted rules 
implementing the requirements of the DCIA. See Amendment of Parts 0 
and 1 of the Commission's Rules, MD Docket No. 02-339, Report and 
Order, 19 FCC Rcd 6540 (2004); 47 CFR part 1, subpart O, Collection 
of Claims Owed the United States.
    \92\ 47 CFR 1.1940(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    40. In addition to financial penalties, section 9(c)(3) of the 
Act,\93\ and section 1.1164(f) of the Commission's rules \94\ grant the 
FCC the authority to revoke authorizations for failure to pay 
regulatory fees in a timely fashion. Should a fee delinquency not be 
rectified in a timely manner the Commission may require the licensee to 
file with documented evidence within sixty (60) calendar days that full 
payment of all outstanding regulatory fees has been made, plus any 
associated penalties as calculated by the Secretary of Treasury in 
accordance with section 1.1164(a) of the Commission's rules,\95\ or 
show cause why the payment is inapplicable or should be waived or 
deferred. Failure to provide such evidence of payment or to show cause 
within the time specified may result in revocation of the station 
license.\96\

Cause, 32 FCC Rcd 9336 (MB 2017).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    41. Pursuant to the ``red light rule,'' we will withhold action on 
any applications or other requests for benefits filed by anyone who is 
delinquent in any non-tax debts owed to the Commission (including 
regulatory fees) and will ultimately dismiss those applications or 
other requests if payment of the delinquent debt or other satisfactory 
arrangement for payment is not made.\97\ Failure to pay regulatory fees 
can also result in the initiation of a proceeding to revoke any and all 
authorizations held by the entity responsible for paying the delinquent 
fee(s).\98\

    \97\ See 47 CFR 1.1161(c), 1.1164(f)(5), and 1.1910.

Notes on Table 1:
1 The fee amounts listed in the column entitled ``Rounded New FY 2018 Regulatory Fee'' constitute a weighted average broadcast regulatory fee by class
  of service. The actual FY 2018 regulatory fees for AM/FM radio station are listed on a grid located at the end of Table 2.
2 The AM and FM Construction Permit revenues and the Digital (VHF/UHF) Construction Permit revenues were adjusted, respectively, to set the regulatory
  fee to an amount no higher than the lowest licensed fee for that class of service. Reductions in the Digital (VHF/UHF) Construction Permit revenues,
  and in the AM and FM Construction Permit revenues, were offset by increases in the revenue totals for Digital television stations by market size, and
  in the AM and FM radio stations by class size and population served, respectively.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In order to calculate individual service fees for FY 2018, we 
adjusted FY 2017 payment units for each service to more accurately 
reflect expected FY 2018 payment liabilities. We obtained our updated 
estimates through a variety of means. For example, we used Commission 
licensee data bases, actual prior year payment records and industry and 
trade association projections when available. The databases we 
consulted include our Universal Licensing System (ULS), International 
Bureau Filing System (IBFS), Consolidated Database System (CDBS) and 
Cable Operations and Licensing System (COALS), as well as reports 
generated within the Commission such as the Wireless Telecommunications 
Bureau's Numbering Resource Utilization Forecast.
    We sought verification for these estimates from multiple sources 
and, in all cases, we compared FY 2018 estimates with actual FY 2017 
payment units to ensure that our revised estimates were reasonable. 
Where appropriate, we adjusted and/or rounded our final estimates to 
take into consideration the fact that certain variables that impact on 
the number of payment units cannot yet be estimated with sufficient 
accuracy. These include an unknown number of waivers and/or exemptions 
that may occur in FY 2018 and the fact that, in many services, the 
number of actual licensees or station operators fluctuates from time to 
time due to economic, technical, or other reasons. When we note, for 
example, that our estimated FY 2018 payment units are based on FY 2017 
actual

[[Page 27856]]

payment units, it does not necessarily mean that our FY 2018 projection 
is exactly the same number as in FY 2017. We have either rounded the FY 
2018 number or adjusted it slightly to account for these variables.

Table 4

Factors, Measurements, and Calculations That Determine Station Signal 
Contours and Associated Population Coverages

AM Stations
    For stations with nondirectional daytime antennas, the theoretical 
radiation was used at all azimuths. For stations with directional 
daytime antennas, specific information on each day tower, including 
field ratio, phase, spacing, and orientation was retrieved, as well as 
the theoretical pattern root-mean-square of the radiation in all 
directions in the horizontal plane (RMS) figure (milliVolt per meter 
(mV/m) @1 km) for the antenna system. The standard, or augmented 
standard if pertinent, horizontal plane radiation pattern was 
calculated using techniques and methods specified in sections 73.150 
and 73.152 of the Commission's rules. Radiation values were calculated 
for each of 360 radials around the transmitter site. Next, estimated 
soil conductivity data was retrieved from a database representing the 
information in FCC Figure R3. Using the calculated horizontal radiation 
values, and the retrieved soil conductivity data, the distance to the 
principal community (5 mV/m) contour was predicted for each of the 360 
radials. The resulting distance to principal community contours were 
used to form a geographical polygon. Population counting was 
accomplished by determining which 2010 block centroids were contained 
in the polygon. (A block centroid is the center point of a small area 
containing population as computed by the U.S. Census Bureau.) The sum 
of the population figures for all enclosed blocks represents the total 
population for the predicted principal community coverage area.
FM Stations
    The greater of the horizontal or vertical effective radiated power 
(ERP) (kW) and respective height above average terrain (HAAT) (m) 
combination was used. Where the antenna height above mean sea level 
(HAMSL) was available, it was used in lieu of the average HAAT figure 
to calculate specific HAAT figures for each of 360 radials under study. 
Any available directional pattern information was applied as well, to 
produce a radial-specific ERP figure. The HAAT and ERP figures were 
used in conjunction with the Field Strength (50-50) propagation curves 
specified in 47 CFR 73.313 of the Commission's rules to predict the 
distance to the principal community (70 dBu (decibel above 1 microVolt 
per meter) or 3.17 mV/m) contour for each of the 360 radials. The 
resulting distance to principal community contours were used to form a 
geographical polygon. Population counting was accomplished by 
determining which 2010 block centroids were contained in the polygon. 
The sum of the population figures for all enclosed blocks represents 
the total population for the predicted principal community coverage 
area.

VII. Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis

    1. As required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, as 
amended (RFA),\99\ the Commission prepared this Initial Regulatory 
Flexibility Analysis (IRFA) of the possible significant economic impact 
on small entities by the policies and rules proposed in the Notice of 
Proposed Rulemaking (Notice). Written comments are requested on this 
IRFA. Comments must be identified as responses to the IRFA and must be 
filed by the deadline for comments on this Notice. The Commission will 
send a copy of the Notice, including the IRFA, to the Chief Counsel for 
Advocacy of the Small Business Administration (SBA).\100\ In addition, 
the Notice and IRFA (or summaries thereof) will be published in the 
Federal Register.\101\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \99\ 5 U.S.C. 603. The RFA, 5 U.S.C. 601-612 has been amended by 
the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 
(SBREFA), Public Law N 104-121, Title II, 110 Stat. 847 (1996).
    \100\ 5 U.S.C. 603(a).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

A. Need for, and Objectives of, the Notice

    2. The Notice seeks comment regarding adopting proposed regulatory 
fees for Fiscal Year 2018. The proposed regulatory fees are attached to 
the Notice in Table 2. This regulatory fee Notice is needed each year 
because the Commission is required by Congress to adopt regulatory fees 
each year ``to recover the costs of . . . enforcement activities, 
policy and rulemaking activities, user information services, and 
international activities.'' \102\ The objective of the Notice is to 
propose regulatory fees for fiscal year 2017 and adopt regulatory fee 
reform to improve the regulatory fee process. The Notice seeks comment 
on the Commission's proposed regulatory fees for fiscal year (FY) 2018. 
The Notice proposes to collect $322,035,000 in regulatory fees for FY 
2018, as detailed in the proposed fee schedules in Table 2, including 
an increase in the DBS fee rate to 48 cents per subscriber so that the 
DBS fee would be approaching parity with the cable television/IPTV fee, 
based on the Media Bureau FTEs devoted to issues that include DBS; 
rates for international bearer circuits that include non-common carrier 
circuits; and rates in revised tiers for submarine cable systems. The 
Notice seeks comment on adopting rates for television broadcasters that 
are more closely tied to the population served in the broadcast area, 
for FY 2019 and seeks comment on whether, for FY 2019, the Commission 
should adopt a new regulatory fee category for small satellites.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

B. Legal Basis

    3. This action, including publication of proposed rules, is 
authorized under sections (4)(i) and (j), 9, and 303(r) of the 
Communications Act of 1934, as amended.\103\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \103\ 47 U.S.C. 154(i) and (j), 159, and 303(r).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

C. Description and Estimate of the Number of Small Entities to Which 
the Rules Will Apply

    4. The RFA directs agencies to provide a description of, and where 
feasible, an estimate of the number of small entities that may be 
affected by the proposed rules and policies, if adopted.\104\ The RFA 
generally defines the term ``small entity'' as having the same meaning 
as the terms ``small business,'' ``small organization,'' and ``small 
governmental jurisdiction.'' \105\ In addition, the term ``small 
business'' has the same meaning as the term ``small business concern'' 
under the Small Business Act.\106\ A ``small business concern'' is one 
which: (1) Is independently owned and operated; (2) is not dominant in 
its field of operation; and (3) satisfies any additional criteria 
established by the SBA.\107\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \104\ 5 U.S.C. 603(b)(3).
    \105\ 5 U.S.C. 601(6).
    \106\ 5 U.S.C. 601(3) (incorporating by reference the definition 
of ``small-business concern'' in the Small Business Act, 15 U.S.C. 
632). Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 01(3), the statutory definition of a 
small business applies ``unless an agency, after consultation with 
the Office of Advocacy of the Small Business Administration and 
after opportunity for public comment, establishes one or more 
definitions of such term which are appropriate to the activities of 
the agency and publishes such definition(s) in the Federal 
Register.''
    \107\ 15 U.S.C. 632.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    5. Small Entities. Our actions, over time, may affect small 
entities that are not easily categorized at present. We therefore 
describe here, at the outset, three comprehensive small entity size 
standards that could be directly affected by the proposals under 
consideration.\108\ As of 2009, small businesses represented 99.9 
percent of the 27.5 million businesses in the United States, according 
to the SBA.\109\ In addition, a ``small organization is generally any 
not-for-profit enterprise which is independently owned and operated and 
not dominant in its field.\110\ In addition, the term ``small 
governmental jurisdiction'' is defined generally as ``governments of 
cities, towns, townships, villages, school districts, or special 
districts, with a population of less than fifty thousand.'' \111\ U.S. 
Census Bureau data for 2011 indicate that there were 90,056 local 
governmental jurisdictions in the United States.\112\ We estimate that, 
of this total, as many as 89,327 entities may qualify as ``small 
governmental jurisdictions.'' \113\ Thus, we estimate that most local 
government jurisdictions are small.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \108\ See 5 U.S.C. 601(3)-(6).
    \109\ See SBA, Office of Advocacy, ``Frequently Asked 
Questions,'' available at https://www.sba.gov/sites/default/files/advocacy/SB-FAQ-2016_WEB.pdf.
    \110\ 5 U.S.C. 601(4).
    \111\ 5 U.S.C. 601(5).
    \112\ See SBA, Office of Advocacy, ``Frequently Asked 
Questions,'' available at https://www.sba.gov/sites/default/files/advocacy/SB-FAQ-2016_WEB.pdf.
    \113\ The 2011 U.S. Census Data for small governmental 
organizations are not presented based on the size of the population 
in each organization. As stated above, there were 90,056 local 
governmental organizations in 2011. As a basis for estimating how 
many of these 90,056 local governmental organizations were small, we 
note that there were a total of 729 cities and towns (incorporated 
places and civil divisions) with populations over 50,000. See http://factfinder.census.gov/faces/tableservices/jsf/pages/productview.xhtml?pid=ECN_2012_US_51SSSZ5&prodType=table. If we 
subtract the 729 cities and towns that exceed the 50,000 population 
threshold, we conclude that approximately 789,237 are small.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    6. Wired Telecommunications Carriers. The U.S. Census Bureau 
defines this industry as ``establishments primarily engaged in 
operating and/or providing access to transmission facilities and 
infrastructure that they own and/or lease for the transmission of 
voice, data, text, sound, and video using wired communications 
networks. Transmission facilities may be based on a single technology 
or a combination of

[[Page 27878]]

technologies. Establishments in this industry use the wired 
telecommunications network facilities that they operate to provide a 
variety of services, such as wired telephony services, including VoIP 
services, wired (cable) audio and video programming distribution, and 
wired broadband internet services. By exception, establishments 
providing satellite television distribution services using facilities 
and infrastructure that they operate are included in this industry.'' 
\114\ The SBA has developed a small business size standard for Wired 
Telecommunications Carriers, which consists of all such companies 
having 1,500 or fewer employees.\115\ Census data for 2012 shows that 
there were 3,117 firms that operated that year. Of this total, 3,083 
operated with fewer than 1,000 employees.\116\ Thus, under this size 
standard, the majority of firms in this industry can be considered 
small.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \114\ See http://www.census.gov/cgi-bin/sssd/naics/naicsrch.
    \115\ See 13 CFR 120.201, NAICS code 517110.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    7. Local Exchange Carriers (LECs). Neither the Commission nor the 
SBA has developed a size standard for small businesses specifically 
applicable to local exchange services. The closest applicable NAICS 
code category is for Wired Telecommunications Carriers. Under that size 
standard, such a business is small if it has 1,500 or fewer 
employees.\117\ According to census data from 2012, there were 3,117 
establishments that operated that year. Of this total, 3,083 operated 
with fewer than 1,000 employees.\118\ The Commission estimates that 
most providers of local exchange service are small entities that may be 
affected by the rules proposed in the Notice.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    8. Incumbent LECs. Neither the Commission nor the SBA has developed 
a small business size standard specifically for incumbent local 
exchange services. The closest applicable NAICS code category is Wired 
Telecommunications Carriers. Under that size standard, such a business 
is small if it has 1,500 or fewer employees.\119\ According to census 
data from 2012, 3,117 firms operated in that year. Of this total, 3,083 
operated with fewer than 1,000 employees.\120\ According to Commission 
data, 1,307 carriers reported that they were incumbent local exchange 
service providers.\121\ Of this total of 1,307 incumbent local exchange 
service providers, an estimated 1,006 operated with 1,500 or fewer 
employees.\122\ Consequently, the Commission estimates that most 
providers of incumbent local exchange service are small businesses that 
may be affected by the rules proposed in this Notice.

Commission, Wireline Competition Bureau, Industry Analysis and 
Technology Division at Table 5.3 (September 2010) (Trends in 
Telephone Service).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    9. Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (Competitive LECs), 
Competitive Access Providers (CAPs), Shared-Tenant Service Providers, 
and Other Local Service Providers. Neither the Commission nor the SBA 
has developed a small business size standard specifically for these 
service providers. The appropriate NAICS code category is Wired 
Telecommunications Carriers. Under that size standard, such a business 
is small if it has 1,500 or fewer employees.\123\ U.S. Census data for 
2012 indicate that 3,117 firms operated during that year. Of that 
number, 3,083 operated with fewer than 1,000 employees.\124\ Based on 
this data, the Commission concludes that the majority of Competitive 
LECs, CAPs, Shared-Tenant Service Providers, and Other Local Service 
Providers are small entities. According to the Commission data, 1,442 
carriers reported that they were engaged in the provision of either 
competitive local exchange services or competitive access provider 
services.\125\ Of these 1,442 carriers, an estimated 1,256 have 1,500 
or fewer employees. In addition, 17 carriers have reported that they 
are Shared-Tenant Service Providers, and all 17 are estimated to have 
1,500 or fewer employees.\126\ Also, 72 carriers have reported that 
they are Other Local Service Providers.\127\ Of this total, 70 have 
1,500 or fewer employees.\128\ Consequently, the Commission estimates 
that most providers of competitive local exchange service, competitive 
access providers, Shared-Tenant Service Providers, and Other Local 
Service Providers are small entities that may be affected by rules 
proposed in this Notice.

    10. Interexchange Carriers (IXCs). Neither the Commission nor the 
SBA has developed a definition for Interexchange Carriers. The closest 
NAICS code category is Wired Telecommunications Carriers as defined in 
paragraph 6 of this IRFA. The applicable size standard under SBA rules 
is that such a business is small if it has 1,500 or fewer 
employees.\129\ U.S. Census data for 2012 indicate that 3,117 firms 
operated during that year. Of that number, 3,083 operated with fewer 
than 1,000 employees.\130\ According to Commission data, 359 companies 
reported that their primary telecommunications service activity was the 
provision of interexchange services.\131\ Of this total, an estimated 
317 have 1,500 or fewer employees. Consequently, the Commission 
estimates that the majority of interexchange service providers are 
small entities that may be affected by rules proposed in this Notice.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    11. Prepaid Calling Card Providers. Neither the Commission nor the 
SBA has developed a small business size standard specifically for 
prepaid calling card providers. The appropriate NAICS code category for 
prepaid calling card providers is Telecommunications Resellers. This 
industry comprises establishments engaged in purchasing access and 
network capacity from owners and operators of telecommunications 
networks and reselling wired and wireless telecommunications services 
(except satellite) to businesses and households. Establishments in this 
industry resell telecommunications; they do not operate transmission 
facilities and infrastructure. Mobile virtual networks operators 
(MVNOs) are included in this industry.\132\ Under the applicable SBA 
size standard, such a business is small if it has 1,500 or fewer 
employees.\133\ U.S. Census data for 2012 show that 1,341 firms 
provided resale services during that year. Of that number, 1,341 
operated with fewer than 1,000 employees.\134\ Thus, under this 
category

[[Page 27879]]

and the associated small business size standard, the majority of these 
prepaid calling card providers can be considered small entities. 
According to Commission data, 193 carriers have reported that they are 
engaged in the provision of prepaid calling cards.\135\ All 193 
carriers have 1,500 or fewer employees.\136\ Consequently, the 
Commission estimates that the majority of prepaid calling card 
providers are small entities that may be affected by rules proposed in 
this Notice.

    12. Local Resellers. Neither the Commission nor the SBA has 
developed a small business size standard specifically for Local 
Resellers. The SBA has developed a small business size standard for the 
category of Telecommunications Resellers. Under that size standard, 
such a business is small if it has 1,500 or fewer employees.\137\ 
Census data for 2012 show that 1,341 firms provided resale services 
during that year.\138\ Of that number, 1,341 operated with fewer than 
1,000 employees.\139\ Under this category and the associated small 
business size standard, the majority of these local resellers can be 
considered small entities. According to Commission data, 213 carriers 
have reported that they are engaged in the provision of local resale 
services.\140\ Of this total, an estimated 211 have 1,500 or fewer 
employees.\141\ Consequently, the Commission estimates that the 
majority of local resellers are small entities that may be affected by 
rules proposed in this Notice.

    13. Toll Resellers. The Commission has not developed a definition 
for Toll Resellers. The closest NAICS code Category is 
Telecommunications Resellers, and the SBA has developed a small 
business size standard for the category of Telecommunications 
Resellers.\142\ Under that size standard, such a business is small if 
it has 1,500 or fewer employees.\143\ Census data for 2012 show that 
1,341 firms provided resale services during that year.\144\ Of that 
number, 1,341 operated with fewer than 1,000 employees.\145\ Thus, 
under this category and the associated small business size standard, 
the majority of these resellers can be considered small entities. 
According to Commission data, 881 carriers have reported that they are 
engaged in the provision of toll resale services.\146\ Of this total, 
an estimated 857 have 1,500 or fewer employees.\147\ Consequently, the 
Commission estimates that the majority of toll resellers are small 
entities that may be affected by the rules proposed in the Notice.

    14. Other Toll Carriers. Neither the Commission nor the SBA has 
developed a size standard for small businesses specifically applicable 
to Other Toll Carriers. This category includes toll carriers that do 
not fall within the categories of interexchange carriers, operator 
service providers, prepaid calling card providers, satellite service 
carriers, or toll resellers. The closest applicable NAICS code category 
is for Wired Telecommunications Carriers, as defined in paragraph 6 of 
this IRFA. Under that size standard, such a business is small if it has 
1,500 or fewer employees.\148\ Census data for 2012 shows that there 
were 3,117 firms that operated that year.\149\ Of this total, 3,083 
operated with fewer than 1,000 employees.\150\ Thus, under this 
category and the associated small business size standard, the majority 
of Other Toll Carriers can be considered small. According to Commission 
data, 284 companies reported that their primary telecommunications 
service activity was the provision of other toll carriage.\151\ Of 
these, an estimated 279 have 1,500 or fewer employees.\152\ 
Consequently, the Commission estimates that most Other Toll Carriers 
are small entities that may be affected by the rules proposed in the 
Notice.

    15. Wireless Telecommunications Carriers (except Satellite). This 
industry comprises establishments engaged in operating and maintaining 
switching and transmission facilities to provide communications via the 
airwaves. Establishments in this industry have spectrum licenses and 
provide services using that spectrum, such as cellular services, paging 
services, wireless internet access, and wireless video services.\153\ 
The appropriate size standard under SBA rules is that such a business 
is small if it has 1,500 or fewer employees. For this industry, Census 
Data for 2012 show that there were 967 firms that operated for the 
entire year.\154\ Of this total, 955 firms had fewer than 1,000 
employees.\155\ Thus under this category and the associated size 
standard, the Commission estimates that the majority of wireless 
telecommunications carriers (except satellite) are small entities. 
Similarly, according to Commission data, 413 carriers reported that 
they were engaged in the provision of wireless telephony, including 
cellular service, Personal Communications Service (PCS), and 
Specialized Mobile Radio (SMR) services.\156\ Of this total, an 
estimated 261 have 1,500 or fewer employees.\157\ Thus, using available 
data, we estimate that the majority of wireless firms can be considered 
small and may be affected by rules proposed in this Notice.

    16. Television Broadcasting. This Economic Census category 
``comprises establishments primarily engaged in broadcasting images 
together with sound. These establishments operate television 
broadcasting studios and facilities for the programming and 
transmission of programs to the public.'' \158\ These establishments 
also produce or transmit visual programming to affiliated broadcast 
television stations, which in turn broadcast the programs to the public 
on a predetermined schedule. Programming may originate in their own 
studio, from an affiliated network, or from external sources. The SBA 
has created the following small business size standard for Television 
Broadcasting firms: Those having $38.5 million or less in annual 
receipts.\159\ The 2012 Economic Census reports that 751 television 
broadcasting firms operated during that year. Of that number, 656 had 
annual receipts of less than $25 million per year. Based on that Census 
data we conclude that a majority of firms that operate television 
stations

[[Page 27880]]

are small. The Commission has estimated the number of licensed 
commercial television stations to be 1,387.\160\ In addition, according 
to Commission staff review of the BIA Advisory Services, LLC's Media 
Access Pro Television Database on March 28, 2012, about 950 of an 
estimated 1,300 commercial television stations (or approximately 73 
percent) had revenues of $14 million or less.\161\ We therefore 
estimate that the majority of commercial television broadcasters are 
small entities.

    \161\ We recognize that BIA's estimate differs slightly from the 
FCC total given supra.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    17. In assessing whether a business concern qualifies as small 
under the above definition, business (control) affiliations \162\ must 
be included. Our estimate, therefore, likely overstates the number of 
small entities that might be affected by our action, because the 
revenue figure on which it is based does not include or aggregate 
revenues from affiliated companies. In addition, an element of the 
definition of ``small business'' is that the entity not be dominant in 
its field of operation. We are unable at this time to define or 
quantify the criteria that would establish whether a specific 
television station is dominant in its field of operation. Accordingly, 
the estimate of small businesses to which rules may apply does not 
exclude any television station from the definition of a small business 
on this basis and is therefore possibly over-inclusive to that extent.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    18. In addition, the Commission has estimated the number of 
licensed noncommercial educational (NCE) television stations to be 
396.\163\ These stations are non-profit, and therefore considered to be 
small entities.\164\ There are also 2,528 low power television 
stations, including Class A stations (LPTV).\165\ Given the nature of 
these services, we will presume that all LPTV licensees qualify as 
small entities under the above SBA small business size standard.

    19. Radio Broadcasting. This Economic Census category ``comprises 
establishments primarily engaged in broadcasting programs by radio to 
the public. Programming may originate in their own studio, from an 
affiliated network, or from external sources.'' \166\ The SBA has 
established a small business size standard for this category, which is: 
Such firms having $38.5 million or less in annual receipts.\167\ U.S. 
Census data for 2012 show that 2,849 radio station firms operated 
during that year.\168\ Of that number, 2,806 operated with annual 
receipts of less than $25 million per year.\169\ According to 
Commission staff review of BIA Advisory Services, LLC's Media Access 
Pro Radio Database on March 28, 2012, about 10,759 (97 percent) of 
11,102 commercial radio stations had revenues of $38.5 million or less. 
Therefore, the majority of such entities are small entities.

    20. In assessing whether a business concern qualifies as small 
under the above size standard, business affiliations must be 
included.\170\ In addition, to be determined to be a ``small 
business,'' the entity may not be dominant in its field of 
operation.\171\ It is difficult at times to assess these criteria in 
the context of media entities, and our estimate of small businesses may 
therefore be over-inclusive.

    21. Cable Television and other Subscription Programming. This 
industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in operating 
studios and facilities for the broadcasting of programs on a 
subscription or fee basis. The broadcast programming is typically 
narrowcast in nature, e.g., limited format, such as news, sports, 
education, or youth-oriented. These establishments produce programming 
in their own facilities or acquire programming from external sources. 
The programming material is usually delivered to a third party, such as 
cable systems or direct-to-home satellite systems, for transmission to 
viewers.\172\ The SBA has established a size standard for this industry 
of $38.5 million or less. Census data for 2012 shows that there were 
367 firms that operated that year.\173\ Of this total, 319 operated 
with annual receipts of less than $25 million.\174\ Thus under this 
size standard, the majority of firms offering cable and other program 
distribution services can be considered small and may be affected by 
rules proposed in this Notice.

    22. Cable Companies and Systems. The Commission has developed its 
own small business size standards for the purpose of cable rate 
regulation. Under the Commission's rules, a ``small cable company'' is 
one serving 400,000 or fewer subscribers nationwide.\175\ Industry data 
indicate that there are currently 4,600 active cable systems in the 
United States.\176\ Of this total, all but ten cable operators 
nationwide are small under the 400,000-subscriber size standard.\177\ 
In addition, under the Commission's rate regulation rules, a ``small 
system'' is a cable system serving 15,000 or fewer subscribers.\178\ 
Current Commission records show 4,600 cable systems nationwide.\179\ Of 
this total, 3,900 cable systems have less than 15,000 subscribers, and 
700 systems have 15,000 or more subscribers, based on the same 
records.\180\ Thus, under this standard as well, the Commission 
estimates that most cable systems are small entities.

    23. Cable System Operators (Telecom Act Standard). The 
Communications Act also contains a size standard for small cable system 
operators, which is ``a cable operator that, directly or through an 
affiliate, serves in the aggregate fewer than 1 percent of all 
subscribers in the United States and is not affiliated with any entity 
or entities whose gross annual revenues in the aggregate exceed 
$250,000,000.'' \181\

[[Page 27881]]

There are approximately 52,403,705 cable video subscribers in the 
United States today.\182\ Accordingly, an operator serving fewer than 
524,037 subscribers shall be deemed a small operator if its annual 
revenues, when combined with the total annual revenues of all its 
affiliates, do not exceed $250 million in the aggregate.\183\ Based on 
available data, we find that all but nine incumbent cable operators are 
small entities under this size standard.\184\ The Commission neither 
requests nor collects information on whether cable system operators are 
affiliated with entities whose gross annual revenues exceed $250 
million.\185\ Although it seems certain that some of these cable system 
operators are affiliated with entities whose gross annual revenues 
exceed $250,000,000, we are unable at this time to estimate with 
greater precision the number of cable system operators that would 
qualify as small cable operators under the definition in the 
Communications Act.

76.901(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    24. Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) Service. DBS Service is a 
nationally distributed subscription service that delivers video and 
audio programming via satellite to a small parabolic dish antenna at 
the subscriber's location. DBS is now included in SBA's economic census 
category ``Wired Telecommunications Carriers.'' The Wired 
Telecommunications Carriers industry comprises establishments primarily 
engaged in operating and/or providing access to transmission facilities 
and infrastructure that they own and/or lease for the transmission of 
voice, data, text, sound, and video using wired telecommunications 
networks. Transmission facilities may be based on a single technology 
or combination of technologies. Establishments in this industry use the 
wired telecommunications network facilities that they operate to 
provide a variety of services, such as wired telephony services, 
including VOIP services, wired (cable) audio and video programming 
distribution; and wired broadband internet services. By exception, 
establishments providing satellite television distribution services 
using facilities and infrastructure that they operate are included in 
this industry.\186\ The SBA determines that a wireline business is 
small if it has fewer than 1,500 employees.\187\ Census data for 2012 
indicate that 3,117 wireline companies were operational during that 
year. Of that number, 3,083 operated with fewer than 1,000 
employees.\188\ Based on that data, we conclude that the majority of 
wireline firms are small under the applicable standard. However, 
currently only two entities provide DBS service, which requires a great 
deal of capital for operation: AT&T and DISH Network.\189\ AT&T and 
DISH Network each report annual revenues that are in excess of the 
threshold for a small business. Accordingly, we must conclude that DBS 
service is provided only by large firms.

    25. All Other Telecommunications. ``All Other Telecommunications'' 
is defined as follows: This U.S. industry is comprised of 
establishments that are primarily engaged in providing specialized 
telecommunications services, such as satellite tracking, communications 
telemetry, and radar station operation. This industry also includes 
establishments primarily engaged in providing satellite terminal 
stations and associated facilities connected with one or more 
terrestrial systems and capable of transmitting telecommunications to, 
and receiving telecommunications from, satellite systems. 
Establishments providing internet services or Voice over internet 
Protocol (VoIP) services via client-supplied telecommunications 
connections are also included in this industry.\190\ The SBA has 
developed a small business size standard for ``All Other 
Telecommunications,'' which consists of all such firms with gross 
annual receipts of $32.5 million or less.\191\ For this category, 
census data for 2012 show that there were 1,442 firms that operated for 
the entire year. Of these firms, a total of 1,400 had gross annual 
receipts of less than $25 million.\192\ Thus, a majority of ``All Other 
Telecommunications'' firms potentially affected by the proposals in the 
Notice can be considered small.

    26. RespOrgs. Responsible Organizations, or RespOrgs, are entities 
chosen by toll free subscribers to manage and administer the 
appropriate records in the toll free Service Management System for the 
toll free subscriber.\193\ Although RespOrgs are often wireline 
carriers, they can also include non-carrier entities. Therefore, in the 
definition herein of RespOrgs, two categories are presented, i.e., 
Carrier RespOrgs and Non-Carrier RespOrgs.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \193\ See 47 CFR 52.101(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    27. Carrier RespOrgs. Neither the Commission, the U.S. Census, nor 
the SBA have developed a definition for Carrier RespOrgs. Accordingly, 
the Commission believes that the closest NAICS code-based definitional 
categories for Carrier RespOrgs are Wired Telecommunications 
Carriers,\194\ and Wireless Telecommunications Carriers (except 
satellite).\195\

    28. The U.S. Census Bureau defines Wired Telecommunications 
Carriers as establishments primarily engaged in operating and/or 
providing access to transmission facilities and infrastructure that 
they own and/or lease for the transmission of voice, data, text, sound, 
and video using wired communications networks. Transmission facilities 
may be based on a single technology or a combination of technologies. 
Establishments in this industry use the wired telecommunications 
network facilities that they operate to provide a variety of services, 
such as wired telephony services, including VoIP services, wired 
(cable) audio and video programming distribution, and wired broadband 
internet services. By exception, establishments providing satellite 
television distribution services using facilities and infrastructure 
that they operate are included in this industry.\196\ The SBA has 
developed a small business size standard for Wired Telecommunications 
Carriers, which consists of all such companies having 1,500 or fewer 
employees.\197\ Census data for 2012 show that there were 3,117 Wired 
Telecommunications Carrier firms that operated for that entire year. Of 
that number, 3,083 operated with less than 1,000 employees.\198\ Based 
on that data, we conclude that the majority

[[Page 27882]]

of Carrier RespOrgs that operated with wireline-based technology are 
small.

    29. The U.S. Census Bureau defines Wireless Telecommunications 
Carriers (except satellite) as establishments engaged in operating and 
maintaining switching and transmission facilities to provide 
communications via the airwaves, such as cellular services, paging 
services, wireless internet access, and wireless video services.\199\ 
The appropriate size standard under SBA rules is that such a business 
is small if it has 1,500 or fewer employees.\200\ Census data for 2012 
show that 967 Wireless Telecommunications Carriers operated in that 
year. Of that number, 955 operated with less than 1,000 employees.\201\ 
Based on that data, we conclude that the majority of Carrier RespOrgs 
that operated with wireless-based technology are small.

    30. Non-Carrier RespOrgs. Neither the Commission, the U.S. Census, 
nor the SBA have developed a definition of Non-Carrier RespOrgs. 
Accordingly, the Commission believes that the closest NAICS code-based 
definitional categories for Non-Carrier RespOrgs are ``Other Services 
Related to Advertising'' \202\ and ``Other Management Consulting 
Services.'' \203\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \202\ 13 CFR 120.201, NAICS code 541890.
    \203\ 13 CFR 120.201, NAICS code 541618.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    31. The U.S. Census defines Other Services Related to Advertising 
as comprising establishments primarily engaged in providing advertising 
services (except advertising agency services, public relations agency 
services, media buying agency services, media representative services, 
display advertising services, direct mail advertising services, 
advertising material distribution services, and marketing consulting 
services).\204\ The SBA has established a size standard for this 
industry as annual receipts of $15 million dollars or less.\205\ Census 
data for 2012 show that 5,804 firms operated in this industry for the 
entire year. Of that number, 5,249 operated with annual receipts of 
less than $10 million.\206\ Based on that data we conclude that the 
majority of Non-Carrier RespOrgs who provide toll-free number (TFN)-
related advertising services are small.

    32. The U.S. Census defines Other Management Consulting Services as 
establishments primarily engaged in providing management consulting 
services (except administrative and general management consulting; 
human resources consulting; marketing consulting; or process, physical 
distribution, and logistics consulting). Establishments providing 
telecommunications or utilities management consulting services are 
included in this industry.\207\ The SBA has established a size standard 
for this industry of $15 million dollars or less.\208\ Census data for 
2012 show that 3,683 firms operated in this industry for that entire 
year. Of that number, 3,632 operated with less than $10 million in 
annual receipts.\209\ Based on this data, we conclude that a majority 
of non-carrier RespOrgs who provide TFN-related management consulting 
services are small.\210\

    \210\ The four NAICS code-based categories selected above to 
provide definitions for Carrier and Non-Carrier RespOrgs were 
selected because as a group they refer generically and 
comprehensively to all RespOrgs.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    33. In addition to the data contained in the four (see above) U.S. 
Census NAICS code categories that provide definitions of what services 
and functions the Carrier and Non-Carrier RespOrgs provide, Somos, the 
trade association that monitors RespOrg activities, compiled data 
showing that as of July 1, 2016 there were 23 RespOrgs operational in 
Canada and 436 RespOrgs operational in the United States, for a total 
of 459 RespOrgs currently registered with Somos.

D. Description of Projected Reporting, Recordkeeping and Other 
Compliance Requirements

    34. This NPRM does not propose any changes to the Commission's 
current information collection, reporting, recordkeeping, or compliance 
requirements.

E. Steps Taken To Minimize Significant Economic Impact on Small 
Entities, and Significant Alternatives Considered

    35. The RFA requires an agency to describe any significant 
alternatives that it has considered in reaching its approach, which may 
include the following four alternatives, among others: (1) The 
establishment of differing compliance or reporting requirements or 
timetables that take into account the resources available to small 
entities; (2) the clarification, consolidation, or simplification of 
compliance or reporting requirements under the rule for small entities; 
(3) the use of performance, rather than design, standards; and (4) an 
exemption from coverage of the rule, or any part thereof, for small 
entities.\211\

    \211\ 5 U.S.C. 603(c)(1) through (c)(4).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    36. This NPRM seeks comment on the Commission's regulatory fee 
collection for Fiscal Year 2018, as required by Congress each year. 
Specifically, the Commission asks for comment each year in the 
Regulatory Flexibility Analysis on how to minimize adverse economic 
impact, imposed by our proposed rules, on small entities. The NPRM 
seeks comment on the Commission's proposed regulatory fees for fiscal 
year (FY) 2018. The NPRM proposes to collect $322,035,000 in regulatory 
fees for FY 2018,\212\ as detailed in the proposed fee schedules in 
Table 2, including an increase in the DBS fee rate to 48 cents per 
subscriber so that the DBS fee would approach the cable television/IPTV 
fee, based on the Media Bureau FTEs devoted to issues that include DBS. 
DBS providers are not small entities. The NPRM also seeks comment on, 
for FY 2019, adopting rates for television broadcasters that are more 
closely tied to the population served in the broadcast area. To the 
extent such broadcasters may be small entities, the rates for smaller 
broadcast areas would be lower than the rates for larger areas, which 
may provide relief. In addition, the de minimis threshold of $1,000 
would likely exempt smaller television broadcast entities from paying 
annual regulatory fees. The Commission also seeks comment on whether, 
for FY 2019, it should adopt a new regulatory fee category for small 
satellites. The proposed regulatory fee for small satellites would be 
significantly lower than the current regulatory fee applicable to NGSO 
systems. The regulatory fees proposed in this NPRM do not include any 
new fee categories, except for the addition of non-common carrier 
terrestrial international bearer circuits that previously did not pay 
regulatory fees, adopted last year. The NPRM seeks comment on rates for 
international bearer circuits that include non-common carrier circuits. 
To the extent such providers are small entities, the rates for smaller 
numbers of circuits would be lower than the rates for larger quantity 
of circuits and, in addition, the

[[Page 27883]]

de minimis of $1,000 would likely exempt the smaller entities from 
paying annual regulatory fees.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \212\ Congress has not appropriated funds for FY 2018, thus this 
number is subject to change.

F. Federal Rules That May Duplicate, Overlap, or Conflict With the 
Proposed Rules

    37. None.

VIII. Ordering Clause

    38. Accordingly, it is ordered that, pursuant to Section 9(a), (b),

U.S.C. 159(a), (b), (e), (f), and (g), this Report and Order and Notice 
of Proposed Rulemaking is hereby adopted.
