No. 28602 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SERVICE REGULATION BEFORE THE PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION OF THE STATE OF MONTANA IN THE MATTER OF Air Voice Wireless, LLC d/b/a AirTalk Wireless Application for Designation as an Eligible Telecommunications Carrier DOCKET NO. 2022.04.048 NOTICE OF APPLICATION AND INTERVENTION DEADLINE On April 1, 2022, Air Voice Wireless, LLC d/b/a AirTalk Wireless ("AirVoice") filed an Application for Designation as an Eligible Telecommunications Carrier ("Application") with the Montana Public Service Commission ("Commission"), pursuant to Section 214(e)(2) of the Telecommunications Act of 1934 (as amended) ("the Act"), 47 C.F.R. §§ 54.101 - 54.207, and Mont. Code Ann. § 69-3-40. AirVoice seeks designation as an Eligible Telecommunications Carrier ("ETC") in order to offer Lifeline service to qualified, low-income customers in Montana. If approved, AirVoice will operate as a Mobile Virtual Network Operator and will provide service to customers using the underlying wireless networks of AT&T Mobility LLC and T-Mobile USA, Inc. AirVoice does not meet the "owned-facilities" requirement for ETC designation that is outlined in Section 214(e)(1)(A) of the Act, but contends the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC") has granted forbearance from this requirement as it pertains to carriers which seek ETC designation only for the purpose of receiving Lifeline support. AirVoice intends to offer pre-paid, mobile phone service plans to customers that will include minutes for phone calls, texts, and broadband internet access service. AirVoice will offer service throughout Montana in the same geographic areas that its underling, facilities-based providers have wireless coverage. AirVoice provides a list of its proposed coverage area by zip code in Exhibit 3 of its Application. A copy of the filing is publicly available at the following locations: the Commission's business office, 1701 Prospect Avenue, Helena, MT; online at the Commission's website (http://psc.mt.gov) under Docket No. 2022.04.048; and at the office of Montana Consumer Counsel ("MCC"), which represents consumer interests before the Commission, 111 North Last Chance Gulch, Suite 1B, Helena, MT, (406) 444-2771. Interested parties can register on the Commission's website to be added to the Watch List for notice of filings in this docket (select "EDDI", create ePass account, and, under "Watch List" tab, enter Docket No. 2022.04.048). The Commission invites any interested party affected by the Application to intervene in this docket. To intervene, a party must file a petition to intervene with the Commission no later than May 20, 2022. A party seeking intervention must: (1) submit an electronic petition at the Commission's website at http://psc.mt.gov ("EDDI, Customer Portal & E-Filing" icon); (2) mail the original copy of the petition to the Commission address stated above; (3) mail an electronic or physical copy of the petition to MCC at the address stated above; and (4) mail an electronic or physical hard copy to NorthWestern's attorney, Shannon Heim, 208 N. Montana Ave., Suite 205, Helena, MT 59601. The Commission invites members of the public who do not wish to formally intervene to submit written public comments on the matter to the Commission's address at 1701 Prospect Ave., P.O. Box 202601, Helena, MT 59620; through the Commission's website at http://psc.mt.gov (select "Documents & Proceedings" tab; select "Comment on a Proceeding"; select "Continue as Guest"; complete form; select "Submit"); or by email at pschelp@mt.gov. The Commission's jurisdiction over this Application is found in Title 69 and Title 2, Chapter 4 of the Montana Code Annotated, and Title 38, Chapters 2 and 5 of the Montana Administrative Rules, and any prior orders of the Commission relevant to the issues presented. DONE AND DATED the 6th day of May, 2022, through delegated staff action. BY: /s/ Michael Dalton Michael Dalton Rate Analyst May 11, 2022 MNAXLP
