FBA Official Statement About the FCC Announcement of $313 Million Through the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund

“The Fiber Broadband Association commends the Federal Communications Commission for continuing to carefully scrutinize the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) long-form applications and for approving fiber and well-designed broadband projects by authorizing an additional $313M in 19 states and 130,000 locations into the program, bringing us up to over $5 billion in RDOF funding to fiber and high performing deployments in 47 states and 2.8 million locations. We encourage the FCC to continue to carefully scrutinize non-fiber projects, as this precious funding is desperately needed to connect communities with reliable and future-proof broadband service now and into the future.”

-Gary Bolton, President and CEO, Fiber Broadband Association
