WCB Grants Frontier Communications Waiver for CAF Phase II Deployment


The Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC or Commission) Wireline Competition Bureau (WCB or Bureau) has issued an Order granting Frontier Communications Corporation (Frontier) a waiver of the Commission’s rules requiring carriers, who accept Connect America Fund (CAF) Phase II model-based support, to complete deployment to 80% of support locations by December 31, 2019. The FCC established that Frontier had good cause to seek waiver of its milestone deadline. The Commission expects Frontier to reach its 80% and 100% support milestones in Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah by the end of 2020.
