FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said in a letter released today that he plans “to circulate an order ensuring adequate and efficient funding for rural broadband deployment later this year.” The letter released today was dated July 23 and responded to a bipartisan letter sent by 130 House members urging the Chairman to address recurring short-falls in the budget for high-cost universal service support for smaller carriers electing model-based support (TR Daily, May 15).
