We are excited to be present for the announcement today in Washington. This means significantly more funding available for electric cooperatives to build gigabit-capable networks to serve members throughout rural America with high-speed internet.

The Commission considered a Report and Order that would adopt a two-phase reverse auction framework for the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund, committing $20.4 billion in high-cost universal service support to bring high-speed broadband service to millions of unserved Americans. (WC Docket Nos. 19-126, 10-90)
