WCB Proposes to Use BDC Fabric Data for High-Cost Programs


The FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau has issued a Public Notice seeking comment on its proposal to use the Broadband Serviceable Location Fabric as the data source for revising and verifying deployment obligations for various FCC high-cost programs, including RDOF, A-CAM I and II, the Bringing Puerto Rico Together Fund, the Connect USVI Fund, and the Alaska Plan.  The Fabric is a common dataset of all locations in the U.S. where it has been determined that fixed broadband internet access service can be installed.

The Public Notice highlights the various high-cost programs and how the Fabric may be applied to such programs in determining the number of locations to be served for deployment obligations.
