FCC Fines 22 RDOF Applicants for Defaulting on Bids


The FCC has adopted a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture identifying 22 Rural Digital Opportunity Fund Phase I Auction applicants that apparently defaulted on their bids for support in violation of the FCC’s rules.  The Commission determined that each listed defaulting applicant failed to meet at least one of these requirements: (1) timely file a long-form application; (2) meet the document submission deadlines; or (3) meet the eligibility requirements to receive RDOF support.  The NAL proposes a cumulative forfeiture of about $8.77 million apportioned amongst the defaulting RDOF applicants.
