Yes, WISPs must fill out Form 477. Here is the link to the 
instructions for

the form: http://www.fcc.gov/Forms/Form477/477instr.pdf
In that form, the relevant part is below. And as an aside, sheesh, 
everybody

should try to be a little nicer to each other. And that's coming from a
lawyer even...

. Facilities-based Providers of Broadband Connections to End User 
Locations:

Entities that are facilities-based providers of broadband connections -
which, for purposes of this information collection, are wired lines or
wireless channels that enable the end user to receive information from
and/or send information to the Internet at information transfer rates
exceeding 200 kbps in at least one direction - must complete and file 
the
applicable portions of this form for each state in which the entity 
provides

one or more such connections to end user locations.

For the purposes of Form 477, an entity is a facilities-based 
provider of
broadband connections to end user locations if it owns the portion of 
the
physical facility that terminates at the end user location, if it 
obtains

unbundled network elements (UNEs), special access lines, or other leased
facilities that terminate at the end user location and provisions/equips
them as broadband, or if it provisions/equips a broadband wireless 
channel
to the end user location over licensed or unlicensed spectrum. Such 
entities

include incumbent and competitive local exchange carriers (LECs), cable
system operators, fixed wireless service providers (including wireless
ISPs), terrestrial and satellite mobile wireless service providers, 
MMDS

providers, electric utilities, municipalities, and other entities. (Such
entities do not include equipment suppliers unless the equipment 
supplier
uses the equipment to provision a broadband connection that it offers 
to the

public for sale. Such entities also do not include providers of fixed
wireless services (e.g., Wi-Fi and other wireless ethernet,or wireless
local area network, applications) that only enable local distribution 
and
sharing of a premises broadband facility.) For such entities, the 
applicable

portions of the form are: 1) the Cover Page; 2) Part I; 3) Part IV (if
necessary); and the relevant portion(s) of Part V.

It was 400 wisps last I heard.

You HAVE to fill it out.  Doesn't do anything for you to not fill it out
anyway.

On this note.  I spent quite a bit of time on the phone with the 477 
folks

today (we're working with them on a solution for those that don't have
excel).

It turns out it's not unusual for third parties to file for you.  You 
just
have to sign a form saying that the info from the other party is 
accurate.

Many small telcos have consultants or lawyers do it for them.

Having said that, we'll send them in for anyone that
