The Wireless Telecommunications and Wireline Competition Bureaus (the Bureaus) announce the availability of an PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 9655 updated list, based on January 2012 American Roamer data, of census blocks potentially eligible for Mobility Fund Phase I support to be offered in Auction 901, as well as other updated information consistent with the revised list. 2. The Bureaus scheduled Auction 901 for September 27, 2012, and sought comment on procedures for the auction and certain program requirements in the Auction 901 (Mobility Fund Phase I) Comment Public Notice, 77 FR 7152, February 10, 2012. The Bureaus concluded that they would identify census blocks eligible for the Mobility Fund Phase I support to be offered in Auction 901 based on an analysis of the most recent available American Roamer data, from January 2012. The Bureaus described the methodology for identifying potentially eligible blocks and provided a preliminary list of such blocks based on their analysis of October 2011 American Roamer data, in electronic format as Attachment A files, as well as certain summary information (based on the same data) in Attachments A and B released with the Auction 901 Comment Public Notice. Further, the Bureaus stated that upon completion of their analysis of the January 2012 American Roamer data they would provide an updated list of potentially eligible census blocks and related updated information for Attachments A and B. 3. The Bureaus have finished that analysis and are now providing the updated information. The updated list of potentially eligible blocks based on January 2012 American Roamer data is available in electronic format only, as separate Attachment A files at http:// wireless.fcc.gov/auctions/901/. For each potentially eligible block, individually identified by its Federal Information Processing Series (FIPS) code, these files provide the population and area of the block; the associated state, county, tract, and block group; any associated Tribe and Tribal land; and the number of road miles in each road mile category. 4. Attachment A to the Public Notice provides a summary of the updated list of potentially eligible census blocks based on January 2012 American Roamer data. For each state and territory, Attachment A provides the total number of potentially eligible census blocks (unserved census blocks with road miles), the total number of block groups with such blocks, the total number of tracts with such blocks, the total number of counties with such blocks, and the number of cellular market areas (CMAs) with such blocks. For each state and territory, Attachment A also provides the total population and E:\FR\FM\17FEN1.SGM 17FEN1 9656 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 33 / Friday, February 17, 2012 / Notices area of the potentially eligible blocks, and the total number of road miles in each of the road mile categories. The Bureaus note that the U.S. Census Bureau has not yet released 2010 Census block-level data for American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam. Consequently, the population of the unserved blocks in these territories is not provided in the Attachment A files. 5. As noted in the Auction 901 Comment Public Notice, for Auction 901, the Bureaus will use road miles from the Census Bureau’s TIGER data for calculating the units in each eligible census block for purposes of comparing bids and measuring performance of Mobility Fund Phase I recipients. Attachment B of the Public Notice provides nine categories of roads in the TIGER data, their descriptions, and the total number of miles of each category in the potentially eligible census blocks on the updated list the Bureaus announce with the Public Notice. The information on TIGER road categories is from Appendix F—MAF/TIGER Feature Class Code (MTFCC) Definitions, pages F–186 and F–187 at http:// www.census.gov/geo/www/tiger/ tgrshp2010/documentation.html. 6. Concurrent with the release of the Public Notice, the Bureaus announce the availability of a map of the potentially eligible blocks on the updated list. The map is an interactive visual representation of data from the updated Attachment A files. The Attachment A files contain more information and generally more detail than is displayed on the map. The map is available at http://wireless.fcc.gov/auctions/901/ and at http://www.fcc.gov/maps/. 7.

    1. The Wireless Telecommunications and Wireline Competition Bureaus 
(the Bureaus) announce the availability of an updated list, based on 
January 2012 American Roamer data, of census blocks potentially 
eligible for Mobility Fund Phase I support to be offered in Auction 
901, as well as other updated information consistent with the revised 
list.
    2. The Bureaus scheduled Auction 901 for September 27, 2012, and 
sought comment on procedures for the auction and certain program 
requirements in the Auction 901 (Mobility Fund Phase I) Comment Public 
Notice, 77 FR 7152, February 10, 2012. The Bureaus concluded that they 
would identify census blocks eligible for the Mobility Fund Phase I 
support to be offered in Auction 901 based on an analysis of the most 
recent available American Roamer data, from January 2012. The Bureaus 
described the methodology for identifying potentially eligible blocks 
and provided a preliminary list of such blocks based on their analysis 
of October 2011 American Roamer data, in electronic format as 
Attachment A files, as well as certain summary information (based on 
the same data) in Attachments A and B released with the Auction 901 
Comment Public Notice. Further, the Bureaus stated that upon completion 
of their analysis of the January 2012 American Roamer data they would 
provide an updated list of potentially eligible census blocks and 
related updated information for Attachments A and B.
    3. The Bureaus have finished that analysis and are now providing 
the updated information. The updated list of potentially eligible 
blocks based on January 2012 American Roamer data is available in 
electronic format only, as separate Attachment A files at http://wireless.fcc.gov/auctions/901/. For each potentially eligible block, 
individually identified by its Federal Information Processing Series 
(FIPS) code, these files provide the population and area of the block; 
the associated state, county, tract, and block group; any associated 
Tribe and Tribal land; and the number of road miles in each road mile 
category.
    4. Attachment A to the Public Notice provides a summary of the 
updated list of potentially eligible census blocks based on January 
2012 American Roamer data. For each state and territory, Attachment A 
provides the total number of potentially eligible census blocks 
(unserved census blocks with road miles), the total number of block 
groups with such blocks, the total number of tracts with such blocks, 
the total number of counties with such blocks, and the number of 
cellular market areas (CMAs) with such blocks. For each state and 
territory, Attachment A also provides the total population and

[[Page 9656]]

area of the potentially eligible blocks, and the total number of road 
miles in each of the road mile categories. The Bureaus note that the 
U.S. Census Bureau has not yet released 2010 Census block-level data 
for American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, 
and Guam. Consequently, the population of the unserved blocks in these 
territories is not provided in the Attachment A files.
    5. As noted in the Auction 901 Comment Public Notice, for Auction 
901, the Bureaus will use road miles from the Census Bureau's TIGER 
data for calculating the units in each eligible census block for 
purposes of comparing bids and measuring performance of Mobility Fund 
Phase I recipients. Attachment B of the Public Notice provides nine 
categories of roads in the TIGER data, their descriptions, and the 
total number of miles of each category in the potentially eligible 
census blocks on the updated list the Bureaus announce with the Public 
Notice. The information on TIGER road categories is from Appendix F--
MAF/TIGER Feature Class Code (MTFCC) Definitions, pages F-186 and F-187 
at http://www.census.gov/geo/www/tiger/tgrshp2010/documentation.html.
    6. Concurrent with the release of the Public Notice, the Bureaus 
announce the availability of a map of the potentially eligible blocks 
on the updated list. The map is an interactive visual representation of 
data from the updated Attachment A files. The Attachment A files 
contain more information and generally more detail than is displayed on 
the map. The map is available at http://wireless.fcc.gov/auctions/901/ 
and at http://www.fcc.gov/maps/.
    7. For additional information about Auction 901, including an 
overview of requirements to participate in the auction and proposals 
for auction procedures, you should consult the Auction 901 Comment 
Public Notice.
