By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau :

     1.   As directed by the Commission,1 the Enforcement Bureau 
       has been conducting an informal investigation into 
       whether further enforcement action is warranted against 
       Global Crossing Telecommunications,  Inc. (Global 
       Crossing) in view of the Commission's  determination that 
       Global Crossing violated section 276 of the 
       Communications Act of 1934, as amended (the Act), 47 
       U.S.C.  276, and the Commission's rules by failing to 
       pay per-call compensation to certain payphone owners.

     2.   The Enforcement Bureau and Global Crossing have 
       negotiated the terms of a Consent Decree that would 
       terminate the Enforcement Bureau's informal 
       investigation.  A copy of the Consent Decree is attached 
       hereto and incorporated by reference.

     3.   We have reviewed the terms of the Consent Decree and 
       evaluated the facts before us.  We believe that the 
       public interest would be served by approving the Consent 
       Decree and terminating the investigation.

     4.   Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED, pursuant to sections 4(i), 
       4(j), and 503(b) of the Communications Act, 47 U.S.C.  
       154(i), 154(j), and 503(b), and the authority delegated 
       in section 0.111 and 0.311 of the Commission's  rules, 47 
       C.F.R.  0.111 and 0.311, that the Consent Decree, 
       incorporated by reference in and attached to this order,

     5.   IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the above captioned 
       investigation  IS TERMINATED.
