-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document contains a correction to text in the Report and 
Order, FCC 12-22, adopted on February 15, 2012 and released on February 
21, 2012, in PS Docket No. 11-82. The Report and Order was published in 
the Federal Register on Friday, April 27, 2012. This document also 
contains a related correction to text in the Federal Register but makes 
no changes to the final rules.

DATES: This correction is effective January 30, 2013. The rules in the 
Report and Order contain information collection requirements. The

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 21, 2012, the Federal 
Communications Commission released a Report and Order, FCC 12-22, in PS 
Docket No. 11-82, which was published at 27 FCC Rcd 2650 (2012). Under 
delegated authority, the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau of 
the Federal Communications Commission adopted and released Order DA 12-
1962 on December 6, 2012. Order DA 12-1962, an Erratum, made a 
correction to the second sentence of paragraph 89 of the Report and 
Order. Specifically, in paragraph 89, in the second sentence, the 
phrase ``(1) that potentially affects at least 900,000 users;'' was 
corrected to read as ``(1) that potentially affects at least 900,000 
user minutes of interconnected VoIP service and results in complete 
loss of service;''. The change was made to correct some inconsistency 
with the related rule and with text in several other places in the 
Report in Order reflecting language identical to the rule. In FR Doc. 
2012-9749, which appears on pages 25088 through 25097 in the Federal 
Register of Friday, April 27, 2012 (77 FR 25088), the following 
correction is made:
    On page 25094, the first column in the Discussion section, 
paragraph 52. second sentence, ``We apply to interconnected VoIP 
service providers the obligation to report when they have experienced, 
on any facilities that they own, operate, lease, or otherwise utilize, 
an outage of at least 30 minutes duration: (1) That potentially affects 
at least 900,000 users; * * *'' is corrected to read ``We apply to 
interconnected VoIP service providers the obligation to report when 
they have experienced, on any facilities that they own, operate, lease, 
or otherwise utilize, an outage of at least 30 minutes duration: (1) 
That potentially affects at least 900,000 user minutes of 
interconnected VoIP service and results in complete loss of service; * 
* *.''
    The Bureau has not changed the text of the final rules that amended 
47 CFR part 4.
