   associated documents, such as transmittal letters, requests for special

   chapter, the filing will be date and time stamped as of the opening of

   the appropriate fee and associated payment form electronically through
   the process set forth in § 1.1105 of this chapter and, if practicable,
   the application and associated documents electronically in accordance
   with the procedures set forth on the Commission's website, Applications which must be filed
   in hard copy format should be submitted according to the procedures set
   forth on the web page of the FCC's Office of the Secretary,

   (e) In addition, if an issuing carrier applies for special permission
   to revise joint tariffs, the application must state that it is filed on
   behalf of all carriers participating in the affected service.
   Applications must be numbered consecutively in a series separate from
   FCC tariff numbers and Letters of Transmittal, bear the signature of
   the officer or agent of the carrier, and be in the following format:
    Application No.

   Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, Washington, DC 20554.

   Attention: Wireline Competition Bureau (here provide the statements
   required by section 61.17(b)).
    (Exact name of carrier)
    (Name of officer or agent)
    (Title of officer or agent)

   (f) If approved, the issuing carrier must comply with all terms and use
   all authority specified in the grant. If a carrier elects to use less
   than the authority granted, it must apply to the Commission for
   modification of the original grant. If a carrier elects not to use the
   authority granted within sixty days of its effective date, the original
   grant will be automatically cancelled by the Commission.
