Rural Broadband

The Fiber Broadband Association advocates for policies to encourage the deployment of all-fiber networks in rural areas.  People living in rural communities deserve the same broadband performance received by urban consumers so they have robust access to all economic, educational, and healthcare resources.  As such, we support requiring that Universal Service Funds be used to deploy all-fiber networks to the premises.  By pursuing such an approach, the government will avoid duplicate or wasteful government investment as the bandwidth necessary to ensure comparable levels of services increases.

A letter to the FCC Chairman re CAF Phase II.

"The Council understands that the Commission’s Wireline Competition Bureau may soon
adopt a framework for the CAF Phase II competitive bidding process. We urge it to seize this 
opportunity and build on last December’s Connect America Fund order to make the deployment 
of all-fiber networks a fundamental element in this framework. By doing so, it will ensure that
rural consumers and their communities have the basic infrastructure so critical to their futures."
