CASE NO. 21-0091-T-PC

CITYNET WEST VIRGINIA, LLC,
a public utility, Bridgeport, Harrison County.
Petition for consent and approval to be designated as
an eligible telecommunications carrier and request for
expedited consideration.

NOTICE OF ETC STATUS

On February 8, 2021, Citynet West Virginia, LLC, a
public telecommunications utility, applied to the Public
Service Commission, pursuant to Section 214(e)(2) of
the Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996, as
amended, for designation as an Eligible
Telecommunications Carrier (ETC) in certain areas of
Barbour, Calhoun, Doddridge, Gilmer, Harrison, Marion,
Marshall, Monongalia, Pocahontas, Randolph, Roane,
Tucker, Taylor, Tyler, Webster, Wirt, Wetzel, and Wood
counties to obtain Federal Universal Service Fund
(USF) support for providing certain telephony services.
Citynet meets all the necessary qualifications to be
designated as an ETC under the Act. The services that
Citynet will offer will increase the choices available to
low-income telecommunications consumers.

According to federal guidelines, a carrier seeking ETC
status must advertise on a regular basis in media
targeted to a general residential market throughout its
service areas and in a manner substantially similar to
the media that the serving incumbent local exchange
carrier advertises in the particular service area.

On May 6, 2021, the Commission granted the Citynet
Petition. Citynet will provide these services under its
approved trade name(s).

This notice is being provided in accordance with
Commission requirements and is not for the purpose of
seeking public comment or protest.
