§ 101.1413 License term and construction requirements.
(a) The MVDDS license term is ten years, beginning on the date of the
initial authorization grant.
(b) As a construction requirement, MVDDS licensees must make 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 is governed by § 1.949
of this chapter.
