                  Re: Surrender of International Section 214 Authorizations
Dear Ms. Dortch:

        In order to reduce unnecessary recordkeeping by both the FCC and AT&T, AT&T is
reviewing its files to identify and surrender international Section 214 authorizations that are no
longer required to provide service. The ability to surrender the following international Section
214 authorizations is the result of streamlining changes in Commission rules after those
individual authorizations were granted (e.g., to allow global international Section 214
authority),1 or the result of previously-notified retirements of associated facilities. In no instance
does the surrender of the following international Section 214 authorizations impact the ability to
provide existing services or facilities to customers.

        As the result of this review, AT&T provides notification of the surrender of the following
international Section 214 authorizations by the AT&T affiliates listed as grantees for each
authorization.

Grantee               Authorization Number              Description

American              ITC-214-19920417-                 Authorization to establish channels of
