                        FORFEITURE ORDER

   Adopted:  May 8, 2002                Released:  May 10, 2002

By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau:


                        I.   INTRODUCTION

In this  Forfeiture Order,  we  find that  Allpage  (``Allpage'') 
violated 47 C.F.R.  52.15(f) by willfully failing to report  its 
number utilization and forecast  data.  We conclude that  Allpage 
is liable for a forfeiture in the amount of  $6,000.



                       II.     BACKGROUND



On April 24, 2001, the Chief, Enforcement Bureau, acting pursuant 
to delegated authority, issued a Notice of Apparent Liability for 
Forfeiture (``NAL'') to Allpage, proposing a $6,000  forfeiture.1  
We issued the NAL because it appeared that Allpage had failed  to 
report on its actual and forecast number usage by filing FCC Form 
502,  the  North  American  Numbering  Plan  Numbering   Resource 
Utilization/Forecast (``NRUF'') Report that was due on  September 
15, 2000.2  We therefore  determined that Allpage had  apparently 
violated  section  52.15(f)  of  the  Commission's  rules,  which  
requires U.S.  carriers receiving  numbering resources  from  the 
North  American  Numbering  Plan  Administrator  (``NANPA''),   a 
Pooling Administrator, or another telecommunications carrier,  to 
report semiannually on their actual and forecast number usage.3

Pursuant to paragraph 15 of the  NAL, we sent Allpage the NAL  by 
certified mail.  However, we did not receive the return  receipt, 
which would have indicated delivery of the NAL to Allpage.  Thus, 
we sent  the NAL  to  Allpage again,  by  certified mail  and  by 
regular mail.   The return  receipt from  our subsequent  mailing 
reflects delivery of the  NAL on June 8,  2001.  Allpage has  not 
responded to the NAL.  



                       III.    DISCUSSION



Section 52.15(f) of the Commission's rules requires U.S. carriers 
to semiannually report their utilization and forecast information 
for each  separate  legal  entity  represented  by  an  Operating 
Company Number (``OCN'').4    It appears that  Allpage failed  to 
file an NRUF report for one OCN, which was referenced in our NAL.  
We  have  not  received  a  response  from  Allpage  to   suggest 
otherwise.  Thus,  we conclude  that Allpage  willfully  violated 
section  52.15(f)  and  that  imposition  of  the  forfeiture  is 
warranted. 


                    IV.      ORDERING CLAUSES


Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED, pursuant  to 47 U.S.C.  503(b),  and 
47 C.F.R.  0.111,  0.311 and 1.80, that  Allpage FORFEIT to  the 
United States  the  sum  of six  thousand  dollars  ($6,000)  for 
willfully violating  the  Commission's rules  that  require  U.S. 
carriers to report actual and forecast number usage.

Payment of the forfeiture may be made 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,  within  30  days of  the  release  of  this 
Forfeiture Order.5  The payment must include the FCC Registration 
Number (FRN)  and the  NAL/Acct. No.  referenced above.   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 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. 6

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that a copy of this Forfeiture Order  shall 
be sent by Certified  Mail/Return Receipt Requested, to  Allpage, 
3141 Bordentown Avenue, Parlin, New Jersey, 08859.
