In the Matter of                )  File No. EB 01-IH-0035
                                )  TRS Company Code: 819100
PTT Telekom, Inc.               )  NAL/Acct.             No. 

                      FORFEITURE ORDER

   Adopted: June 13, 2001               Released:  June  15, 

By the Commission:

     1.  In this Forfeiture Order, we find that PTT Telekom, 
Inc. (``PTT'') has violated 47 U.S.C.  254(d) and 47 C.F.R. 
 54.706 by willfully and repeatedly failing to make 
required contributions to universal service support 
programs.  We conclude that PTT is liable for a forfeiture 
in the amount of one hundred thirty-seven thousand dollars 
($137,000), the amount proposed in the Notice of Apparent 
Liability (``NAL'') in this matter.1  

     2.  On March 29, 2001, the Commission issued the NAL to 
PTT.  We issued the NAL because it appeared that PTT has 
never submitted its required universal service contributions 
and owes more than $925,000 to universal service funds.  
Pursuant to paragraph 15 of the NAL, we sent the NAL by 
certified mail to PTT and to its registered agent.  Although 
the return receipts reflect that the registered agent 
received the NAL on April 2, 2001, and that PTT received the 
NAL on April 9, 2001, we have not received a response or 
payment of the proposed forfeiture.  Having received nothing 
that would undermine the factual findings described in the 
NAL, we conclude that the violations as described occurred 
and that the proposed forfeiture should issue. 

     3.  Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED THAT, pursuant to 47 
U.S.C.  503(b) and 47 C.F.R.  1.80(f)(4), PTT Telekom, 
Inc. is LIABLE FOR A FORFEITURE in the amount of one hundred 
thirty-seven thousand dollars ($137,000) for willfully and 
repeatedly violating 47 U.S.C.  254(d) and 47 C.F.R.  
     4.  Payment of the forfeiture shall be made in the 
manner provided for in 47 C.F.R.  1.80 within thirty days 
of the release of this Forfeiture Order.  If the forfeiture 
is not paid within the period specified, the case may be 
referred to the Department of Justice for collection 
pursuant to 47 U.S.C.  504(a).  PTT Telekom, Inc. may pay 
the forfeiture by mailing a check or money order, payable to 
the order of the Federal Communications Commission, to the 
Forfeiture Collection Section, Finance Branch, Federal 
Communications Commission, P.O. Box 73482, Chicago, Illinois 
60673-7482.  The payment should note the NAL/Acct. No. 
referenced above.  A request for payment of the full amount 
of this Forfeiture Order under an installment plan should be 
sent to: Chief, Revenue and Receivables Operations Group, 
445 12th Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20554.2  

     5.  IT IS FURTHER ORDERED THAT a copy of this 
Forfeiture Order shall be sent by Certified Mail Return 
Receipt Requested to Ron Kiser, PTT Telekom, Inc., 1000 N. 
Orlando Avenue, Winter Park, Florida 327894, and to National 
Registered Agents, Inc., 1090 Vermont Avenue, N.W., 
Washington, D.C. 20005.
