As the FCC prepares to finalize the framework for the Connect America Fund Phase II Auction and moves forward with Phase II of the Mobility Fund, potential participants in these two programs should begin to review the available details of each program. The CAF Phase II Auction in particular offers a new opportunity for competitive broadband providers to win almost $2 billion in federal funding to deploy broadband service in new areas throughout the country.
The Mobility Fund Phase II auction is also moving toward finalization, with $4.53 billion available to winning bidders. DWT’s experts recently presented an overview of each program in a recent webinar. A recording of that webinar is available here.
