   Adopted: July 26, 2011 Released: July 27, 2011

   By the Chief, Telecommunications Consumers Division, Enforcement Bureau:

   1. In this Order, which follows upon our Omnibus Notice of Apparent
   Liability for Forfeiture ("Omnibus NAL"), we determine that no forfeiture
   penalty should be imposed on Galaxy Internet Services, Inc.. ("Galaxy
   Internet Services").

   2.  In the Omnibus NAL, we found Galaxy Internet Services apparently
   liable for a forfeiture for repeatedly violating section 222 of the
   Communications Act of 1934, as amended (the "Communications Act" or
   "Act"), section 64.2009(e) of the Commission's rules, and the Commission's
   EPIC CPNI Order, because it appeared that the Company had not filed a
   timely CPNI compliance certification for calendar years 2007 and 2008.
   Consistent with section 503(b)(4) of the Act, Galaxy Internet Services was
   granted an opportunity to show, in writing, why no such forfeiture should
   be imposed.

    3. Upon review of the record, and based upon additional information
       provided by Galaxy

   Internet Services, we agree that no forfeiture penalty should be imposed.

   4. ACCORDINGLY, IT IS ORDERED that, pursuant to section 503(b) of the

   Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and sections 0.111, 0.311, and
   1.80(f)(4) of the Commission's rules, the proposed forfeiture issued to
   Galaxy Internet Services WILL NOT BE IMPOSED.

   5. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that a copy of this Order shall be sent by First
   Class Mail

   and Certified Mail Return Receipt Requested to Galaxy Internet Services,
   Attn. Robert Carp, President, 188 Needham St., Suite 110R, Newton, MA
