WTA Applauds FCC Action of USF High Cost Program Budget

WASHINGTON, D.C. (December 12, 2018) – The following statement can be attributed to Derrick Owens, Senior Vice President of Government & Industry Affairs for WTA – Advocates for Rural Broadband:

“WTA applauds the FCC for approving an Order today that increases the USF High Cost Program’s budget which will help expand broadband access in rural America. The Order ensures the small, rural broadband providers that make up WTA’s membership have the resources they need to build out more robust networks to more rural residents, businesses and anchor institutions.

We look forward to working with the Commission on implementation and will be active participants in the Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking process.”
