Verizon Wants Government Help For Rural Partners
Oct 6, 2010, 11:27 AM by Philip Berne
Verizon Wireless wants the FCC to offer Universal Service Fund cash to rural carriers that sign licensing and roaming agreements with The Network. The Universal Service Fund is meant to provide telecommunication service, including high-speed LTE networking, to underserved, rural areas. Verizon Wireless is building out its LTE network and wants to license LTE spectrum space to rural carriers. Verizon and the rural carriers would then build the LTE network either separately or together, depending on the agreement, and the rural carrier would sell the LTE service locally. Verizon would then sign roaming agreements with the carrier.
