Room: Capitol




E-rate Capital Investment


The FCC is considering how to obtain the most “bang for the buck” in the E-rate program in order to provide the greatest amount of bandwidth to schools and libraries at the least cost.  Some parties have proposed that a certain amount of E-rate funds should be allocated to support capital investment in long-term scalable infrastructure.  This panel will discuss their experience with capital investment programs and the feasibility of using E-rate funds to promote capital expenditures in addition to supporting operating expenditures.
