    U.S. CELLULAR FILES COMMENTS ON E-RATE NPRM

    LNGS filed comments on behalf of U.S. Cellular in the FCC’s E-Rate Modernization NPRM.  While generally supportive of the E-Rate program, U.S. Cellular’s comments expressed concern regarding proposals under consideration by the FCC that would phase out existing E-rate support for voice communications services and limit E-rate funding to services that are directly available, at least in part, to students and library patrons.  In its comments, U.S. Cellular points out that such proposals would be harmful since cellular service plays an important role in the efficient and safe operation of schools and libraries.
