   the licensee permanently discontinues service either during the initial
   license term or during any subsequent license term, as follows:

   (1) After the interim buildout deadline as specified in § 27.14(r), (s),
   or (t) as applicable (where the licensee meets the Interim Buildout
   Requirement), or after the accelerated Final Buildout Requirement
   (where the licensee failed to meet the Interim Buildout Requirement).

   (2) After the AWS-4 final buildout deadline as specified in
   § 27.14(q)(1) (where the licensee meets the AWS-4 interim buildout
   requirement), or after the accelerated final buildout deadline
   specified in § 27.14(q)(3) (where the licensee failed to meet its AWS-4
   interim buildout requirement).

   (b) For licensees with common carrier or non-common carrier regulatory
   status that hold 600 MHz band authorizations or AWS authorizations in
   the 1695-1710 MHz, 1755-1780 MHz, 1915-1920 MHz, 1995-2000 MHz,
   2000-2020 MHz, 2155-2180 MHz, and 2180-2200 MHz bands, permanent
   discontinuance of service is defined as 180 consecutive days during
   which a licensee does not provide service to at least one subscriber
   that is not affiliated with, controlled by, or related to the licensee
   in the individual license area. For licensees with private, internal
   communications regulatory status that hold 600 MHz band authorizations
   or AWS authorizations in the 1695-1710 MHz, 1755-1780 MHz, 1915-1920
   MHz, 1995-2000 MHz, 2000-2020 MHz, 2155-2180 MHz, and 2180-2200 MHz
   bands, permanent discontinuance of service is defined as 180
   consecutive days during which a licensee does not operate.

   (c) Filing requirements. A licensee that holds a 600 MHz band
   authorization or an AWS authorization in the 1695-1710 MHz, 1755-1780
   MHz, 1915-1920 MHz, 1995-2000 MHz, 2000-2020 MHz, 2155-2180 MHz, and
   2180-2200 MHz bands, that permanently discontinues service as defined
   in this section must notify the Commission of the discontinuance within
   10 days by filing FCC Form 601 or 605 requesting license cancellation.
   An authorization will automatically terminate, without specific
   Commission action, if service is permanently discontinued as defined in
   this section, even if a licensee fails to file the required form
   requesting license cancellation.
