2 Regarding Youghiogheny Communications’ argument on procedural unfairness in considering AT&T’s commitments, we note that we have fully analyzed the public interest harms associated with this transaction, including those alleged by Youghiogheny Communications, and find that the conditions that we impose are sufficient to address the potential harms arising out of this transaction. See Letter from Donald J. Evans, Counsel for Youghiogheny Communications, LLC, to Marlene H. Dortch, Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, WT Docket 13-193, at 1-2 (Mar. 10, 2014) (“Youghiogheny Communications Mar. 10, 2014 Ex Parte”); Youghiogheny Communications Mar. 10, 2014 Clyburn Office Ex Parte at 1.

26 As described above, see ¶ 115, supra, AT&T has indicated that it will maintain Cricket’s ETC designations for some period of time and will continue to fulfill its Lifeline ETC obligations and comply with relevant requirements. We conclude that it serves the public interest for Leap/Cricket to continue to operate as a Lifeline only ETC following consummation of the proposed transfer of control. We emphasize that nothing in this Memorandum Opinion and Order should be construed as authorizing Leap to relinquish its ETC designation. To relinquish Leap’s (including Cricket’s) ETC designation, Leap (which will become a subsidiary of AT&T after consummation of the proposed transaction) must comply separately with any state or federal relinquishment rules and requirements. Until both Leap and AT&T comply with the federal and state relinquishment rules and requirements, Leap’s obligation to provide discounted services to its Lifeline customers will remain unaffected.
