Feb. 7, 2020: FCC Releases RDOF Order

The FCC has just released the Report and Order previously approved at the January 30 open meeting; the full document is linked here.

The Vantage Point Consulting and Engineering teams are actively reviewing this Order for any significant changes, surprises, or declarations. If you wish to receive a Memo from Vantage Point with our analysis and recommendations, you can sign up at the form below.

Additionally, the draft agenda for the February 20 meeting, released today, includes a Public Notice to further consider details of the auction, including an October 25 start date for bidding.


What happens next
The next release should include the list of eligible areas. Once those locations are established, Vantage Point will provide a national map (PDF) of eligible areas for no charge. Complimentary PDF state maps will be available as well. Interested parties may sign up for these maps at the form below.


Recommended next steps
Once the list of eligible areas is released, there are three key steps for interested bidders to undertake:

  1. Examine the locations for areas of interest.
  2. Determine CapEx.
  3. Evaluate feasibility of CapEx.

If you are interested in assistance with these steps, we encourage you to consider Vantage Point’s RDOF Concierge Prep Service. Available for a one-time flat fee, Concierge includes a services credit that can be used for the items listed above as well as KMZ maps, webinar registrations, and other benefits. Additional information is available here.

We also invite you to attend our RDOF Kickoff Webinar. (Please note this webinar is complimentary for Concierge clients, available to others with a registration fee.) You may register here.

If you have any additional questions about RDOF, the Concierge Package, or Vantage Point’s services, please complete the form below or reach out to any member of the Vantage Point team.

Thank you for your interest in RDOF. Vantage Point is looking forward to another successful auction.
