The FCC released the FY2019 Eligible Services List on November 16, 2018.  The release also authorizes the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) to open the annual filing window no earlier than 60 days after the release of the Order or January 15, 2019. In the July 23 USAC board meeting, Catriona Ayer, Vice President of USAC,  recommended a standard E-rate filing window beginning the second week of January and ending the third week of March.  Today's approval of the Eligible Services List (ESL) will allow for the proposed filing window - note that last year USAC announced the filing window in December.
