In a matter related to the CPNI enforcement dragnet, the FCC recently released yet another NAL, charging WorldNet, LLC (“WorldNet”) with “willful violation” of an FCC Order resulting from its alleged failure to respond to the Enforcement Bureau’s LOI.
This NAL highlights the seriousness of non-responsiveness to FCC communications, especially formal LOIs. Clients are advised to diligently respond to FCC orders, notices and letters in a timely manner and to seek counsel whenever there is a doubt regarding your duty to respond.WorldNet’s failure to respond subjected the company to significant liabilities that could have been avoided.
Furthermore, clients are advised to ensure they are in compliance with the Registered Agent requirements imposed by federal law and FCC rules. Section 413 of the Communications Act and Section 1.47 of the FCC’s rules commands that every common carrier and interconnected VoIP provider maintain a registered agent in the District of Columbia for service of process.
