The FCC released Public Notice DA 17-921 seeking comments on the sufficiency of budgets for category two services under the E-rate program.
As stated in the request for comments, When the Commission adopted these rules in 2014, it established a five-year test period to allow the Commission to determine whether the applicant budgets were effective in ensuring greater access to E-rate funding for internal connections. The Commission directed the Bureau to report on the sufficiency of these applicant budgets before the filing window before funding year 2019 opens.
Interested parties may file comments on or before October 23, 2017 and reply comments on or before November 7, 2017. Comments and reply comments should reference WC Docket No. 13-184 and may be filed using the Commission’s Electronic Comment Filing System (ECFS).
