    U.S. CELLULAR FILES REPLY COMMENTS ARGUING THAT THE FCC SHOULD TAKE STEPS TO ACCELERATE MOBILE BROADBAND DEPLOYMENT IN RURAL COMMUNITIES

    On September 19, 2014, LNGS client U.S. Cellular filed REPLY COMMENTS arguing that the FCC should examine mobile broadband deployment in rural areas in its tenth annual broadband progress report. U.S. Cellular demonstrated that, although consumers place a high value on the unique services provided by mobile broadband, further efforts to promote mobile broadband deployment in rural areas are needed because availability for rural consumers is dramatically lower than availability in central cities and suburbs. U.S. Cellular explained that certain FCC actions have hindered carriers’ efforts to bring mobile broadband to rural consumers, and argued that the FCC should set a new course by taking several steps to accelerate mobile broadband deployment throughout rural America.
