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.

Program Targets Areas With At Least 4 Million Rural Homes, Small Businesses That Lack Modern Broadband Service

The proposal would raise the bar for rural broadband deployment by making more areas eligible for support and requiring faster service than last year’s Connect America Fund (CAF) Phase II reverse auction.  If the FCC ultimately approves these proposals, millions more rural homes and small businesses would be connected to high-speed broadband networks providing up to gigabit speeds.
