FCC Schedules Mobility Fund Auction for Sept 27
The Federal Communications Commission today announced plans regarding the Mobility Fund Phase I auction and Connect America Fund. The Connect America program is meant to bring wired and wireless broadband to under-served Americans, who typically live in rural regions. The FCC has scheduled a reverse auction to award $300 million in one-time Mobility Fund Phase I support to carriers that commit to provide 3G or better service to areas where such services are not available. The FCC today published a map that shows areas around the country that could benefit from such a commitment. The FCC is reforming the Universal Service Fund and Intercarrier Compensation systems to allocate the necessary funds. The reverse auction is scheduled for September 27, 2012 and is being referred to as Auction 901.
