Frontier Communications Corp. (Frontier) recently notified the FCC that Frontier plans to modify its Connect America Fund Phase I Round 2 (CAF Phase I) incremental broadband deployment plans. Frontier submitted a new list of 515 census blocks that it now intends to serve using CAF Phase I incremental support.  Any providers that serve locations in these census blocks with Internet speeds of 3 Mbps down / 768 kbps up or higher will have 45 days (i.e., by January 30, 2017) to notify Frontier of such service in the newly identified census blocks. A list of the 515 census blocks that Frontier intends to serve is available at https://transition.fcc.gov/wcb/CAF I.2 Census Block Update.xlsx.   Though the FCC encourages existing providers to notify Frontier directly, Frontier also will be deemed to have received a notification that is filed electronically with the FCC in WC Docket No. 10-90.  Frontier underwent a similar process earlier in Fall 2016.
