chapter, the filing will be date and time stamped as of the opening of
the next business day.

the appropriate fee and associated payment form electronically through
the process set forth in § 1.1105 of this chapter and, if practicable,

with the procedures set forth on the Commission's website,
www.fcc.gov/licensing-databases/fees. 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:

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.
