TVCN's late-filed Petition for Reconsideration would also disserve the public interest and create
uncertainty for the auction process. Strict adherence to filing deadlines furthers the public interest
because it ensures administrative finality. We have recognized that "administrative finality in licensing
matters advances the public interest" because it "promotes the prompt initiation of service without undue
delay.""29 Administrative finality is particularly important in this case because new licenses for most of
the spectrum associated with the cancelled licenses have been subsequently won at auction by other
parties. Moreover, TVCN has failed to explain how granting the requested stay will expedite the
deployment of service to the public. Thus, granting a stay of the Order on Reconsideration would
disserve the public interest because it would contravene an important statutory filing deadline without
justification, unnecessarily delay an already lengthy adjudicative process, and create administrative
12. For the reasons discussed above, TVCN has failed to satisfy the standard for obtaining a stay.
Accordingly, we deny TVCN's Petition to Stay.
13. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that, pursuant to sections 1, 4(i), 4(j), 303(r), and 309(j)(3) of
the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 151, 154(i), 154(j), 303(r), 309(j)(3) and the
authority delegated pursuant to sections 0.131(c) and 0.331 of the Commission's rules, as amended, 47
C.F.R. 0.131(c), 0.331, the Petition to Stay Pending Review by the Appellate Court filed by TV
Communications Network, Inc. on November 9, 2011, IS DENIED.
