WCB Directs USAC to Integrate All Previous Funding Requests into Telecom Program Rates Database


The Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC or Commission) Wireline Competition Bureau (WCB or Bureau) sent a letter to the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) directing it to add to the Database of Urban and Rural Rates for the Telecommunications Program (Telecom Program Rates Database) the rates for all funding requests committed since July 1, 2020, the launch date of the database, to ensure a more comprehensive dataset.  The Bureau had previously sent a letter to USAC, on June 30, 2020, directing it to include data from both the E-Rate and Rural Health Care Programs from the three most recent available funding years to identify median rates.
