    LNGS Files Comments of U.S. Cellular re Connect America Phase I Incremental Support

    U.S. Cellular encourages the Commission to take a more expansive view of its options for allocating the CAF Phase I funding turned down by price cap carriers. Making support available to mobile broadband carriers would help to resolve one important question that deserves an answer: Would the price cap carriers have turned down two-thirds of the Phase I funding if a competing carrier were prepared to deliver the services for the offered price of $775 per household? Failing to adopt mechanisms that confront this important question are at the heart of the FCC’s failure to distribute all of the Phase I support, and should compel a policy response that minimizes the chance of support inefficiently.
