The Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureau) seeks focused comment on three issues raised in the E-rate Modernization NPRM, 78 FR 51597, August 20, 2013, that merit further inquiry as the Commission moves towards modernizing the E-rate program to meet schools’ and libraries’ broadband connectivity needs. The Erate Modernization NPRM sought broad comment on and proposed three goals for the program: (1) Ensuring that schools and libraries have affordable access to 21st Century broadband that supports digital learning; (2) maximizing the cost-effectiveness of Erate funds; and (3) streamlining the administration of the program. The Commission has received more than 1,500 comments and ex parte filings in response to the E-rate Modernization NPRM including numerous comments from individual educators and school administrators; school districts and consortia; librarians and library systems; E-rate vendors and educational content providers; and other interested public and private organizations. PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 13599 2. The record in this proceeding demonstrates overwhelming agreement among stakeholders that the E-rate program has been a crucial part of helping our nation’s schools and libraries connect to the Internet. The record also shows a strong commitment to ensuring that the E-rate program quickly evolve to meet the ever-growing need for high-capacity broadband so our students and communities have access to 21st Century educational tools. The record is replete with support and suggestions for how to meet the goals for the E-rate program proposed in the Erate Modernization NPRM. 3. Based on the extensive input the Commission has received, it appears that meeting the Commission’s proposed goals for the E-rate program will require that, in the near term, the program focus on providing the support necessary to ensure schools and libraries can afford high-speed connectivity to and within schools and libraries, even as the Commission develops a long-term approach that allows applicants to scale up capacity while driving down costs. More specifically, the record underscores the importance of providing consistent and broadly available support for the equipment and services needed to enable high-capacity wireless broadband within schools and libraries; greater support, at least in the short term, for last-mile deployments needed to connect schools and libraries that do not currently have access to high-speed connections; a support methodology that allows applicants to capture the long-term cost-efficiencies associated with access to scalable, high-speed connections; less support for voice services, as the cost of voice services transition in the long run to the marginal cost of packet-based voice services provided over high-capacity broadband connections; incentives for making cost-effective purchasing decisions, including incentives and opportunities for schools and libraries to benefit from economies of scale in purchasing supported services; and as much administrative simplicity as possible, while protecting against waste, fraud and abuse. 4. In light of these themes that emerge from the record, as the Commission seeks to modernize the E-rate program, there are three issues raised in the E-rate Modernization NPRM that merit further focused inquiry at this time: (1) How best to focus E-rate funds on highcapacity broadband, especially highspeed Wi-Fi and internal connections; (2) whether and how the Commission should begin to phase down or phase out support for traditional voice services E:\FR\FM\11MRP1.SGM 11MRP1
