SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burdens, and as required by the PRA of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), the FCC invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on the following information collections. Comments are requested concerning: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information shall have practical utility; the accuracy of the Commission’s burden estimate; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and ways to further reduce the information collection burden on small business concerns with fewer than 25 employees. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control No.: 3060–0994. Title: Flexibility for Delivery of Communications by Mobile Satellite Service Providers in the 2 GHz Band, the L Band, and the 1.6/2.4 GHz Band. Form No: Not Applicable. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved information collection. Respondents: Business or other forprofit. Number of Respondents: 126 respondents; 126 responses. Estimated Time per Response: 0.50– 50 hours per response. Frequency of Response: On occasion, one time and annual reporting requirements, third-party disclosure and recordkeeping requirements. Obligation To Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. The statutory authority for this collection is contained in Sections 4(i), 7, 302, 303(c), 303(e), 303(f) and 303(r) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended; 47 U.S.C. 154(i), 157, 302, 303(c), 303(e), 303(f) and 303(r). Total Annual Burden: 520 hours. Annual Cost Burden: $530,340. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: In general, there is no need for confidentiality with this collection of information. Needs and Uses: This collection will be submitted to the Office of FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Management and Budget (OMB) as a revision following the 60-day comment period in order to obtain the full threeyear clearance from OMB. On December 23, 2016, the Commission released a Report and Order in IB Docket No. 13–213, FCC 16– 181, titled ‘‘Terrestrial Use of the 2473– 2495 MHz Band for Low-Power Mobile Broadband Networks; Amendments to Rules for the Ancillary Terrestrial Component of Mobile Satellite Service Systems.’’ The revisions to 47 CFR part 25 adopted in the Report and Order remove a portion of the information collection requirements as it relates to a newly proposed low power broadband network, as described in document FCC 16–181. These revisions enable ATC licensees to operate low-power ATC using licensed spectrum in the 2483.5– 2495 MHz band. Although the original low-power ATC proposal described the use of the adjacent 2473–2483.5 MHz band, low-power terrestrial operations at 2473–2483.5 MHz were not authorized by the Report and Order. The revisions provide an exception for lowpower ATC from the requirements contained in section 25.149(b) of the Commission’s rules, which require detailed showings concerning satellite system coverage and replacement satellites. The revisions also provide an exception from a rule requiring integrated service, which generally requires that service handsets be capable of communication with both satellites and terrestrial base stations. Accordingly, the provider of low-power ATC would be relieved from certain burdens that are currently in place in the existing information collection. To qualify for authority to deploy a lowpower terrestrial network in the 2483.5– 2495 MHz band, an ATC licensee would need to certify that it will utilize a Network Operating System to manage its terrestrial low-power network. Although the Report and Order also created new technical requirements for equipment designed to communicate with a low-power ATC network, satisfaction of these technical requirements relieves ATC licensees from meeting other technical requirements that apply to ATC systems generally. We also had a revision to this information collection to reflect the elimination of the elements of this information collection for 2 GHz MSS. See 78 FR 48621–22. The purposes of the existing information collection are to obtain information necessary for licensing operators of Mobile-Satellite Service (MSS) networks to provide ancillary services in the U.S. via terrestrial base stations (Ancillary Terrestrial E:\FR\FM\27FEN1.SGM 27FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 37 / Monday, February 27, 2017 / Notices Components, or ATCs); obtain the legal and technical information required to facilitate the integration of ATCs into MSS networks in the L-Band and the 1.6/2.4 GHz Bands; and to ensure that ATC licensees meet the Commission’s legal and technical requirements to develop and maintain their MSS networks and operate their ATC systems without causing harmful interference to other radio systems.

Needs and Uses: The Commission released on October 14, 2010, a Third Report and Order and Order on Reconsideration, FCC 10–181, CS Docket 97–80 and PP Docket 00–67, modifying the Commission’s rules to implement Section 629 of the Communications Act (Section 304 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996). Section 629 of the Communications Act directs the Commission to adopt rules to assure the commercial availability of ‘‘navigation devices,’’ such as cable settop boxes. One rule modification in the Third Report and Order and Order on Reconsideration is intended to prohibit price discrimination against retail devices. This modification requires cable operators to disclose annually the fees for rental of navigation devices and single and additional CableCARDs as well as the fees reasonably allocable to the rental of single and additional CableCARDs and the rental of operatorsupplied navigation devices if those devices are included in the price of a bundled offer.

    On December 23, 2016, the Commission released a Report and Order in 
IB Docket No. 13-213, FCC 16-181, titled ``Terrestrial Use of the 2473-
2495 MHz Band for Low-Power Mobile Broadband Networks; Amendments to 
Rules for the Ancillary Terrestrial Component of Mobile Satellite 
Service Systems.'' The revisions to 47 CFR part 25 adopted in the 
Report and Order remove a portion of the information collection 
requirements as it relates to a newly proposed low power broadband 
network, as described in document FCC 16-181. These revisions enable 
ATC licensees to operate low-power ATC using licensed spectrum in the 
2483.5-2495 MHz band. Although the original low-power ATC proposal 
described the use of the adjacent 2473-2483.5 MHz band, low-power 
terrestrial operations at 2473-2483.5 MHz were not authorized by the 
Report and Order. The revisions provide an exception for low-power ATC 
from the requirements contained in section 25.149(b) of the 
Commission's rules, which require detailed showings concerning 
satellite system coverage and replacement satellites. The revisions 
also provide an exception from a rule requiring integrated service, 
which generally requires that service handsets be capable of

Accordingly, the provider of low-power ATC would be relieved from
