On July 11, the FCC voted to approve a budget and application window for the Rural Broadband Experiments program allocating $100 million towards bringing broadband to rural areas without adequate service. Applications, due October 14, will mark the first opportunity for providers who are not the incumbent local telephone company in an area to receive Connect America Fund subsidies to build and operate fixed broadband networks.
On Wednesday, July 30, at 3 pm ET, please join Carol Mattey, deputy bureau chief of the FCC Wireline Competition Bureau and Tom Koutsky, chief policy counsel for Connected Nation, for a webinar outlining the specifics of the FCC’s official Order, the application window deadlines, and how to submit successful applications.
