FCC solicits e-Rate comments


The FCC’s Public Notice comes a few months after the agency held a hearing to discuss the implications of its national broadband plan for education. During that Aug. 20 hearing, panelists testified that the e-Rate can play a significant role in this plan–but only if commissioners raise the funding cap to at least $4 billion. (See “Panelists to FCC: Raise e-Rate funding cap.“)

Comments in response to National Broadband Plan (NBP) Public Notice No. 15 are due by Nov. 20, and reply comments are due Dec. 11.
