Are there other property characteristics HUD should consider in its inspection and scoring protocols? 4.

I. Introduction 1. Broadband access is critical to economic opportunity, job creation, education and civic engagement. That is why closing the digital divide is the Commission’s top priority. For communities throughout our nation to thrive and prosper, their residents must have the option to obtain high-speed internet access. 2. Last year, the Commission took a major step forward in expanding broadband access to many parts of rural America. As a result of the Commission’s successful Connect America Fund (CAF) Phase II auction, the Commission has begun providing $1.488 billion in universal service support over ten years to build highspeed broadband service to over 700,000 households and small businesses in 45 states, with 99.75% of locations receiving at least 25/3 Mbps service and more than half receiving at least 100/20 Mbps service. 3. But more work remains to be done. For example, more than 10 million households and small businesses in price cap areas still lack access to critical broadband services that offer speeds of at least 25 megabits per second (Mbps) downstream and 3 Mbps upstream in unserved census blocks, including more than 7 million in rural areas. In this document, the Commission proposes to build on the success of the CAF Phase II auction by establishing the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund, which will commit at least $20.4 billion over the next decade to support high-speed broadband networks in rural America. Because the CAF Phase II auction secured higher quality services for consumers at a lower cost to the Universal Service Fund (Fund), the Commission proposes to conduct a multi-round, reverse, descending clock auction that favors faster services with lower latency and encourages intermodal competition. And in light of the need to bring service both to consumers in wholly unserved areas as well as those living in partially served areas, the Commission proposes to assign funding in two phases: Phase I will target those areas that current data confirm are wholly unserved, and Phase II will target those areas that are partially served as well as any areas not won in the first phase. By relying on a two-phase process, as the Commission did with the Connect America Fund, the Commission can move expeditiously to commence an auction in 2020 while E:\FR\FM\21AUP1.SGM 21AUP1
