    LNGS clients Viaero, Pine Cellular, and Union Telephone were authorized by the FCC to receive their first installment of Phase I Mobility Fund Support to construct new networks in Colorado and Nebraska; Oklahoma; and Wyoming, respectively. Viaero was authorized to receive over $7.1 million in support by the FCC; Pine Cellular was authorized to receive almost $1.7 million; and Union Telephone was authorized to receive over $7.6 million.

LNGS clients Viaero, Pine Cellular, and Union Telephone collectively submitted winning bids for close to $50 million of the $300 million in available Mobility Fund Phase I support. [PUBLIC NOTICE and AWARDS]. On July 29, 2013, the FCC authorized the initial distribution of Phase I support to Viaero, Pine Cellular, and Union Telephone.
