RE: Classification of small incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC) basket 4 and 5 services

Dear Sir/Madam:

On 30 September 2013, Commission staff sent a letter to notify parties of an amended process regarding the small ILEC basket 4 and 5 service proceedings. In its letter, Commission staff specified due dates for comments and reply comments.

It has come to Commission staff’s attention that the reply comment period overlaps the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and that this could significantly reduce the time available to small ILECs to respond to any comments filed. In light of this, Commission staff is extending the reply comment period to 17 October 2013. Therefore, the comment period is now the following:

• Interested persons may file comments on the small ILECs’ submissions by 10 October 2013.

• The small ILECs may file reply comments by 17 October 2013.

Yours sincerely,

Original signed by

Michel Murray
