The Commission invited interested parties to provide such comments after the Commission collected data for the market analysis to enable commenters to include analysis of such data in their comments.

Background

    On December 11, 2012, the Commission adopted a Report and Order 
requiring providers and purchasers of special access and certain 
entities providing ``best efforts'' service to submit data and 
information for a comprehensive evaluation of the special access 
market. FCC 12-153, 78 FR 2572 (Jan. 11, 2013). In the accompanying 
FNPRM, the Commission sought comment on possible changes to its rules 
for granting pricing flexibility for the special access services 
provided by incumbent local exchange carriers in price cap areas. 78 FR 
2600 (Jan. 11, 2013). The Commission invited interested parties to 
provide such comments after the Commission collected data for the 
market analysis to enable commenters to include analysis of such data 
in their comments. In the Report and Order, the Commission delegated 
authority to the Bureau to implement the data collection and obtain 
approval for the collection from the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-
3520). On August 15, 2014, the Commission obtained OMB's approval for 
the collection under OMB Control Number 3060-1197. On September 15, 
2014, the Bureau released an order amending the collection to reflect 
the approval received from OMB and announcing a December 15, 2014 
deadline by which parties are required to submit data and information.

FNPRM was October 6, 2014 and November 17, 2014 for filing reply 
comments. 79 FR 15092 (March 18, 2014). Because collection of data must 
be completed and made available for review before parties can comment 
on the questions posed in the FNPRM, the Bureau extends the deadline 
for filing comments and reply comments in the special access 
proceeding. Accordingly, the Commission in this document, WC Docket No.
