    COMMENTS OF UNITED STATES CELLULAR CORPORATION ON ALLOWING THE USE OF E-RATE FUNDS TO SUPPORT REMOTE LEARNING

    On February 16, 2021, LLGS filed comments on behalf of United States Cellular Corporation in WC Docket No. 21-31 urging the FCC to take steps immediately to further the public interest in improving students’ access to educational opportunities. Specifically, U.S. Cellular agrees that students are furthering an educational purpose when they are learning remotely from home. Additionally, U.S. Cellular asked the Commission to waive the cost allocation rules for off-campus use and permit schools to access devices that are tailored to remote learning.  U.S. Cellular supports other commenters who suggested that the Commission should open an additional window for supplemental support.  Finally, the Commission should issue a decision through the Wireline Competition Bureau pursuant to delegated authority.
