You’ve been waiting years for this – and finally the time is almost here. The FCC is in the final stages of planning the Connect America Fund (CAF) Phase II reverse auction, which is set to launch in 2018. In its August 4th Public Notice, the FCC outlined the proposed framework for a multi-round auction to distribute funding for rural broadband deployment in price cap areas to bidders who offer to build networks for the lowest cost. Sounds simple, right?
In typical FCC fashion, the proposed rules for the auction methodology are complex and nuanced. Never fear – JSI is here! We have been preparing for this moment since the FCC’s first mention of USF reverse auctions in the 2011 USF/ICC Transformation Order.
The first JSI webinar in a series on the auction, “Preparing for Launch of the CAF Phase II Auction,” covered:
- A thorough overview of the CAF Phase II auction;
- How to determine if you should participate;
- The proposed auction rules;
- The timeline; and
- The various compliance requirements that will be expected of participants and winners.
This webinar should help you and your company make the right decision about getting involved in the CAF Phase II auction. Plus you will know what you need to do, and when.
JSI plans to hold at least two more webinars during the CAF Phase II auction process, and those who purchase this CAF Phase II Auction launch webinar will receive a discount on the other webinars in the series.
