    U.S. CELLULAR FILES COMMENTS IN 12th BROADBAND PROGRESS NOTICE OF INQUIRY PROCEEDING

    On behalf of United States Cellular Corporation, LNGS filed COMMENTS in response to the FCC’s Twelfth Broadband Progress Notice of Inquiry, arguing that the FCC should fix problems caused by flawed data that overstates mobile broadband coverage in rural areas, and that the FCC should adopt a 10 Mbps/1 Mbps speed benchmark for mobile broadband, applied throughout a service area, including all measured cell edges in the area. In addition, U.S. Cellular argued that, if the FCC determines that mobile broadband networks are not being reasonably deployed in rural areas, it should create incentives for carriers to accelerate broadband network deployment, such as providing adequate universal service funding.
