Our team has prepared a memorandum explaining the “Accelerated Disbursement Option” in the FCC’s Rural Broadband Experiments Program. To promote expedited build-out, the experiments allow for awardees to receive 30 percent of total funding upfront based on certain criteria outlined in the order. In our memorandum, we detail this funding option and describe the eligibility requirements for receiving accelerated disbursement.
Applications for the Rural Broadband Experiments program are due Tuesday, October 14, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. ET.
