   By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau:

    1. In this Order, we adopt the attached Consent Decree entered into
       between the Enforcement Bureau ("Bureau") of the Federal
       Communications Commission ("Commission") and Purple Communications,
       Inc. ("Purple"), the successor in interest to Hands On Video Relay
       Service, Inc. and GoAmerica, Inc. (collectively, the "Company"). The
       Consent Decree terminates investigations by the Bureau against the
       Company for possible violations of section 225 of the Communications
       Act of 1934, as amended (the "Communications Act" or "Act"), 47 U.S.C.
       S: 225, and sections 64.601 et seq. of the Commission's rules, 47
       C.F.R. S: 64.601 et seq.

    2. The Bureau and Purple have negotiated the terms of a Consent Decree
       that resolves these matters. A copy of the Consent Decree is attached
       hereto and incorporated by reference.

    3. After reviewing the terms of the Consent Decree and evaluating the
       facts before us, we find that the public interest would be served by
       adopting the Consent Decree and terminating the referenced

    4. In the absence of material new information not previously disclosed to
       the Bureau, we conclude that our investigations raise no substantial
       or material questions of fact as to whether Purple possesses the basic
       qualifications to hold or obtain a Commission license or

    5. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that, pursuant to sections 4(i) of the
       Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and sections 0.111 and 0.311
       of the Commission's rules, the Consent Decree attached to this Order
       IS ADOPTED.
