In re: Tatkatel, Inc.; A-2010-2179791; A-3112253
By the Commission:
Tatkatel, Inc. (Tatkatel or the Company), whose utility code is 3112253, is a telecommunications interexchange reseller certificated at A-3112253, on June 4, 2010.
Tatkatel appears to be an inactive business entity. While Tatkatel is not currently delinquent in any way, the Company's attorney advised Commission staff on July 25, 2013, that the Company has never been active and he believes the Company failed to launch after being certificated. Further research by Commission staff revealed an entry on the FCC Form 499 website that Tatkatel is ''no longer active'' as of April 5, 2010. Commission staff's attempts to reach the Company have similarly been unsuccessful.
Based on the above facts, we tentatively conclude that it is appropriate to revoke Tatkatel's certificate of public convenience without the necessity of a formal complaint as being in the public interest. Where a company does not, or as in this case never did, provide utility service, there is no reason to maintain a certificate of public convenience for that company; Therefore,
It Is Ordered That:
1. Revocation of Tatkatel, Inc.'s certificate of public convenience is hereby tentatively approved as being in the public interest.
2. The Secretary serve a copy of this Tentative Order upon the Office of Consumer Advocate, the Office of Small Business Advocate, and the Bureau of Investigation & Enforcement, and also cause a copy of this Tentative Order to be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin with a 30-day comment period.
3. Absent the filing of adverse public comment within 30 days after publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin, this Tentative Order shall become final without further action by the Commission.
4. Upon this order becoming final, and without further action by the Commission, the certificate of public convenience held by Tatkatel, Inc. A-3112253 shall be canceled, and Tatkatel, Inc.'s name stricken from all active utility lists maintained by the Commission's Bureau of Technical Utility Services and the Assessment Section of the Bureau of Administration.
