    SMITH BAGLEY, INC., ADVOCATES MAKING CAF PHASE II SUPPORT AVAILABLE FOR 4G LTE NETWORKS SERVING TRIBAL LANDS

    On behalf of Smith Bagley, Inc. (SBI), LNGS filed a LETTER with the FCC urging the agency to make Connect America Fund Phase II support available to mobile broadband providers in the Phase II competitive bidding process, and to reject proposals to adopt bidding preferences for fiber to the home or other wireline broadband services. SBI explained that deployment of wireline broadband on Tribal lands and in remote areas is prohibitively expensive, that there is a strong demand from consumers in these areas for 4G LTE broadband, and that opening up the Phase II auction for mobile broadband providers will help to meet this consumer demand and will promote the efficient use of Phase II funding.
