FCC Boss on E-Rate Reform

2/28/2014 By:

In his first blog post, FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly recently posted the following guideposts that he believes must be reflected in E-Rate reform:

■ E-Rate must not increase costs for consumers.

■ E-Rate must be refocused on broadband access.

■ E-Rate matching requirements must be made consistent with other federal programs.

■ E-Rate funding must leverage the private sector networks and services, not overbuild them.

■ E-Rate funding should provide schools with the flexibility to choose the speeds that best meet their needs.

■ E-Rate program administration must be revised.
