FCC Mobility Fund Phase II Challenge Process

Overview

Are there areas of your community which lack mobile voice and high-speed internet coverage? The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Mobility Fund Phase II will make up to $4.53 billion available over 10 years to expand 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) service, primarily in rural areas. As part of this opportunity, the FCC established a Challenge Process to provide feedback on a map of eligible areas. Interested parties, including local governments have an opportunity to challenge an initial determination that an area is ineligible for support. This opportunity closes in late-Novmber of this year. For further information on the Challenge Process, please see the documents linked via the FCC Mobility Fund Phase II website. Specific inquiries to the FCC can be e-mailed to mf2challengeprocess@fcc.gov.  In New Hamphshire, the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) is helping to coordinate participation in the Challenge Process.
