OEA and WCB Seeks Comment on Adjustment Factor Values for 5G Fund for Rural America


The Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC or Commission) Office of Economics and Analytics (OEA) and Wireline Competition Bureau (WCB or Bureau) seek comment on the proposed adjustment factor values for the purposes of bidding in the 5G Fund for Rural America auction as well as for disaggregating legacy support.  The 5G Fund for Rural America will provide $9 billion to support 5G service in rural areas of the country. The Adjustment Factor Comment Public Notice bases its proposed adjustment factor values on three economic analyses.  The adjustment factors, ranging from 1.0 to 3.8, are based on an area’s market demand (high, medium, low) and terrain elevation (flat, hilly, and mountainous). The comment deadline is July 7, 2020, while the reply comment deadline is August 6, 2020.
