  • FCC Chairman Pai announced in a blog post that the Commission will consider a number of items focused on closing the digital divide between rural and urban America at the August 3 Open Meeting. In particular, “the Commission will consider a Public Notice to initiate the pre-auction process for the Connect America Fund Phase II auction.” The CAF II auction will award up to $198 million annually for 10 years to service providers that agree to provide voice and broadband services to fixed locations in unserved high-cost areas.
