Please join Connected Nation for a webinar discussing FCC Rural Broadband Experiments on Thursday, October 9th.
The FCC will host a webinar this week on Thursday, October 9 at 2 pm EDT. The webinar will provide information on completing Form 5610, which must be filed in order to apply for Rural Broadband Experiment funds.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently approved funding for Rural Broadband Experiments to expand "robust" broadband infrastructure in unserved rural areas. These Connect America Fund broadband subsidies are being made available to a wide range of applicants and service providers.  Learn more about these funds here.

In addition, you can download a white paper about "expressions of interest" filed by applicants in Tennessee as well as key takeaways from these submissions.
