  § 20.15   Requirements under Title II of the Communications Act.

   (a) Commercial mobile radio services providers, to the extent
   applicable, must comply with sections 201, 202, 206, 207, 208, 209,
   216, 217, 223, 225, 226, 227, and 228 of the Communications Act, 47
   U.S.C. 201, 202, 206, 207, 208, 209, 216, 217, 223, 225, 226, 227, 228;
   part 68 of this chapter, 47 CFR part 68; and § § 1.701-1.748, and 1.815
   of this chapter, 47 CFR 1.701-1.748, 1.815.

   (b) Commercial mobile radio service providers are not required to:

   (1) File with the Commission copies of contracts entered into with
   other carriers or comply with other reporting requirements, or with
   § § 1.781 through 1.814 and 43.21 of this chapter; except that commercial
   radio service providers that are facilities-based providers of
   broadband service or facilities-based providers of mobile telephony
   service, as described in § 1.7001(b)(1) and (3) of this chapter, are
   required to file reports pursuant to § § 1.7000-1.7002 of this chapter.
   For purposes of this section, mobile telephony is defined as real-time,
   two-way switched voice service that is interconnected with the public
   switched network utilizing an in-network switching facility that
   enables the provider to reuse frequencies and accomplish seamless
   handoff of subscriber calls.

   (2) Seek authority for interlocking directors (section 212 of the
   Communications Act);

   (3) Submit applications for new facilities or discontinuance of
   existing facilities (section 214 of the Communications Act).

   (c) Commercial mobile radio service providers shall not file tariffs
   for international and interstate service to their customers, interstate
   access service, or international and interstate operator service.
   Sections 1.771 through 1.773 and part 61 of this chapter are not
   applicable to international and interstate services provided by
   commercial mobile radio service providers. Commercial mobile radio
   service providers shall cancel tariffs for international and interstate
   service to their customers, interstate access service, and
   international and interstate operator service.

   (d) Except as specified as in paragraphs (d)(1) and (2), nothing in
   this section shall be construed to modify the Commission's rules and
   policies on the provision of international service under part 63 of
   this chapter.

   (1) Notwithstanding the provisions of § 63.21(c) of this chapter, a
   commercial mobile radio service provider is not required to comply with
   § 42.10 of this chapter.

   (2) A commercial mobile radio service (CMRS) provider that is
   classified as dominant under § 63.10 of this chapter due to an
   affiliation with a foreign carrier is required to comply with § 42.11 of
   this chapter if the affiliated foreign carrier collects settlement
   payments from U.S. carriers for terminating U.S. international switched
   traffic at the foreign end of the route. Such a CMRS provider is not
   required to comply with § 42.11, however, if it provides service on the
   affiliated route solely through the resale of an unaffiliated
   facilities-based provider's international switched services.

   (3) For purposes of paragraphs (d)(1) and (2) of this section,
   affiliated and foreign carrier are defined in § 63.09 of this Chapter.

   (e) For obligations of commercial mobile radio service providers to
   provide local number portability, see § 52.1 of this chapter.
