Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) new rule on local multipoint distribution service. GAO noted that: (1) the rule would modify the competitive bidding rules by: (a) not making installment payments available; (b) adopting an additional "very small business" category and redesignating as "entrepreneurs" the existing category of entities with average gross revenues for the preceding 3 years of more than $40 million but not more than $75 million; and (c) adopting a bidding credit of 45 percent for very small businesses and increasing the bidding credits available to small businesses and entrepreneurs to 35 percent and 25 percent, respectively; and (2) FCC complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
