Public Wireless, Inc.

[46 Pa.B. 3902]
[Saturday, July 16, 2016]

Public Meeting held
June 30, 2016

Commissioners Present: Gladys M. Brown, Chairperson; Andrew G. Place, Vice Chairperson; John F. Coleman, Jr.; Robert F. Powelson; David W. Sweet

Public Wireless, Inc.; A-2009-2115540

Tentative Order

By the Commission:

 Public Wireless, Inc. (Public Wireless or the Company), whose utility code is 3111218, is a competitive access provider certificated at A-2009-2115540, on March 24, 2010.

 Public Wireless appears to be an inactive business entity. Research by Commission staff revealed an entry on the FCC Form 499 website that Public Wireless Voice is no longer active as of June 30, 2014. Commission staff's attempts to reach the Company have similarly been unsuccessful, and Commission records show that the Company's last filed annual financial report was in 2013.

 Currently, there are no informal or formal complaints pending against the Company before the Commission. Based on the above facts, we tentatively conclude that it is appropriate to revoke Public Wireless's certificate of public convenience as being in the public interest. Where a company no longer provides utility service to the public, there is no reason to maintain a certificate of public convenience for that company; Therefore,

It Is Ordered That:

 1. Revocation of Public Wireless, 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, the Bureau of Technical Utility Services shall prepare a Final Order for entry by the Secretary and shall advise the affected Bureaus within the Commission in writing that the certificate of public convenience held by Public Wireless, Inc., utility code A-3111218, is cancelled and the case may be closed.

 4. Upon entry of the Final Order described in ordering Paragraph No. 3 above, Public Wireless, Inc.'s name will be 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.
