The FCC released the 2006 "Monitoring Report on Universal Service" last week.  The report tracks industry trends and statistics.  The Monitoring Report shows E-rate commitments and disbursements from 1998-2005 and state commitment and disbursement information from 2003-2005.  The Report also shows that historically more schools prefer that their service providers provide them with discounted invoices than paying their service provider in full and going through the Bear process.  It is important to note that the data provided in the monitoring report is either through March 31st or June 30, 2006 depending on the statistics. 

Below is a Funds For Learning data analysis of E-rate commitment and disbursements to date as well as a breakdown of commitments and disbursements by state.
