AT&T Statement on FCC’s Action on Mobility Fund II and CAF II Auctions

Posted by: AT&T Blog Team on February 23, 2017 at 12:33 pm

The following may be attributed to Joan Marsh, AT&T Senior Vice President of Federal Regulatory:

“While many of us take broadband services for granted, many Americans living in rural communities remain unconnected.  Low population density, topographical barriers, and significant geographical distances make it economically unviable to deploy broadband in many rural areas. Today, the FCC, under Chairman Pai’s leadership, took significant steps toward addressing the digital divide and bringing mobile and fixed broadband services to hard-to-serve rural communities.  The FCC’s actions today move both the Mobility Fund II and CAF II Auctions closer to reality and are a big win for rural Americans.  By making these items a top priority for 2017, Chairman Pai is delivering on his commitment to Universal Service and his pledge to bring the benefits of the digital age to all Americans.”
