FCC E-rate Workshop on New Fiber Rules

The FCC released a Public Notice on April 8, 2015, announcing that “…a public workshop will be held to provide schools, libraries, providers, and state and local policy makers with information and tools for planning fiber build projects under the new E-rate rules.”  The FCC workshop will be held at the FCC headquarters on May 20, 2015, at 1pm.

The new E-rate rules regarding the purchase of fiber networks can be found in the 2nd E-rate Modernization Order.

The Public Notice specifically states, “The workshop will provide an overview of the new E-rate rules governing installment payments, state matching for fiber builds, leasing and management of dark fiber, and self-construction.” The workshop will also be used as a platform to discuss best practices for building fiber networks, considerations for cost-effective options, and managing a fiber-build project in alignment with E-rate program rules.

The FCC will broadcast the event live for those stakeholders that cannot attend in person.
