Decoding E-rate Fiber

Schools Health and Libraries Broadband Coalition

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

The Federal Communications Commission modernized its E-rate policies in 2014 to encourage greater build-out of fiber to rural schools and libraries. But the implementation of these policies has been fraught with difficulty, and many E-rate fiber applications requesting Special Construction Charges have been denied. Moderator Brian Davidson, President of Clarity Solutions, Inc., will guide our panel as they walk through the current and future E-rate fiber landscape. Evan Marwell, CEO and Founder of EducationSuperHighway, will review the data on denied applications and ESH's recent initiative Cathy Benham, Director of E-rate Consulting Services at CSM Consulting, Inc. will provide her perspective as an E-rate consultant from one of the largest E-rate consulting firms in the country. Don't miss this webinar on E-rate Fiber's current state of affairs as well as what the future holds.
