FCC Adopts CAF Support Requirements


The Federal Communications Commission’s Wireline Competition and Wireless Telecommunications bureaus and Office of Engineering and Technology (together, Bureaus) have adopted a framework for measuring the speed and latency performance for recipients of high-cost universal service support to serve fixed locations.

The Order also requires providers to submit testing results as part of their annual compliance certification. Carriers that do not comply with the Commission’s speed and latency requirements will be subject to a reduction in support, commensurate with their level of noncompliance. In addition, providers will be subject to audit of all testing data.
