    LNGS CLIENTS FILE REPLY COMMENTS CITING OPPOSITION TO MOBILITY FUND BUDGET CUTS, AND SUPPORT FOR OPENING UP THE CONNECT AMERICA FUND TO MOBILE BROADBAND PROVIDERS

    On September 8, 2014, the Rural Wireless Carriers (a group comprised of LNGS clients receiving universal service support) filed REPLY COMMENTS with the FCC concerning proposals for cutting and reallocating the Mobility Fund Phase II budget. The Rural Carriers oppose reduced funding for mobile broadband and cites support in the record for permitting carriers providing mobile broadband services to participate in the FCC’s reverse auction for Connect America Fund Phase II support. The Rural Carriers also pointed to support for their argument that the FCC must give priority to fixing its methods for measuring mobile broadband coverage because its current estimates substantially overstate the extent of mobile broadband availability in rural America.
