Memo: Enhanced A-CAM Program Adopted

July 25, 2023

Yesterday the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released its Report and Order, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, and Notice of Inquiry (Order) extending the Alternative Connect America Model (A-CAM) program support for fifteen (15) years in exchange for the provision of broadband service to 100% of the eligible locations at speeds of 100/20 Mbps. It is a contingent offer requiring at least 50% of eligible unserved locations in existing A-CAM areas to opt in to Enhanced A-CAM. If 50% participation is not reached, the Commission indicated in paragraph 101 that it will not proceed with the Enhanced A-CAM program.
