Re: Globcom, Inc. d/b/a Globcom Global Communications, Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture, File No. EB-02-IH-0757 (adopted September 25, 2003):
Today we take an important step in preserving the integrity of the Universal Service Fund by sending a signal to carriers who shirk their duty to pay their fair share. This proposed forfeiture is the largest the Commission has ever sought for apparent universal service violations and puts carriers on notice that disregarding their universal service obligations will result in significant penalties. This important enforcement action highlights our commitment to affordable telecommunications services for all Americans.
