NOTE: The format and information required for the quarterly reports identified below remain unchanged from prior years.  The quarterly reports will not track the formatting of the new Section 43.62 annual International Traffic and Revenue and Circuit Status Reports.

All foreign-affiliated carriers, including both resellers and facilities-based carriers, that are classified as dominant must file a quarterly report detailing traffic and revenue data for the services and routes on which the carrier is classified as dominant.  The information must be divided among service billed in the United States, service billed outside the United States, and service transiting the United Statesand cover the calendar quarter period of October 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014.  The report must be filed with the FCC by March 31, 2015.

Note: The Commission requires carriers to combine traffic data for off-shore U.S. points with the data for domestic U.S. points.  As a result, carriers should only be reporting traffic between the United States and foreign points.  The off-shore U.S. points are as follows: Alaska, Guam, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Baker Island, Howland Island, Jarvis Island, Johnston Atoll, Kingman Reef, Midway Atoll, Navassa Island, Northern Mariana Islands (includes Rota, Saipan and Tinian), Palmyra Atoll and Wake Island.

Facilities-based carriers that are classified as dominant must file a report on the status of all circuits used to provide international service on those routes on which the carrier is classified as dominant.  Information regarding activated or idle circuits must be reported on a facility-by-facility basis.  FCC staff requests carriers filing circuit data reports identify the transmission facilities used, i.e., U.S. - United Kingdom cable system, etc. for each route on which the carrier is dominant and identify the number of channels or circuits for each system if more than one system is used. The report for the calendar quarter of October 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014 must be filed with the FCC by March 31, 2015.
