SHLB Coalition Letter to the FCC on the Universal Service Fund (October 20, 2011)
Thursday, October 20, 2011
Letter sent by the Schools, Health and Libraries Broadband Coalition (“SHLB Coalition”) to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) "to provide additional clarification of its request that recipients of funding from the Universal Service Fund (USF) to deploy broadband networks in rural and high-cost areas be required to deploy high-capacity broadband networks to serve community anchor institutions." The letter suggests that the FCC’s Order on USF reform should include specified obligations on each recipient of funding to ensure that anchor institutions receive the high-capacity broadband service that they need.
