Unauthorized Operation of Wireless Stations
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) proposed a $640,000 penalty against AT&T for allegedly operating common carrier fixed point-to-point microwave stations throughout the United States without authorization and failing to provide required license modification notices to the FCC. AT&T subsidiaries allegedly operated dozens of wireless stations at variance from the stations’ authorizations for periods as long as five years and failed to notify the FCC regarding minor modifications of an additional eight stations within the past year.
