§ 101.1413 License term and renewal expectancy.
(a) The MVDDS license term is ten years, beginning on the date of the
initial authorization grant.
(b) Application of a renewal expectancy is based on a showing of
substantial service at the end of five years into the license period
and ten years into the license period. The substantial service
requirement is defined as a service that is sound, favorable, and
substantially above a level of mediocre service which might minimally
warrant renewal. At the end of five years into the license term and ten
years into the license period, the Commission will consider factors
(1) Whether the licensee's operations service niche markets or focus on
serving populations outside of areas serviced by other MVDDS licensees;
(2) Whether the licensee's operations serve populations with limited
access to telecommunications services; and
(3) A demonstration of service to a significant portion of the
population or land area of the licensed area.
(c) The renewal application of an MVDDS licensee must include the
following showings in order to claim a renewal expectancy:
(1) A coverage map depicting the served and unserved areas;
(2) A corresponding description of current service in terms of
geographic coverage and population served or transmitter locations in
the served areas; and
(3) Copies of any Commission Orders finding the licensee to have
violated the Communications Act or any Commission rule or policy and a
list of any pending proceedings that relate to any matter described by
the requirements for the renewal expectancy.
