FCC Extends Emergency Connectivity Fund Service Delivery Deadline
The Federal Communications Commission granted, in part, a Request for Waiver filed by the Schools, Health & Libraries Broadband (SHLB) Coalition and the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN). First, The FCC waived and extended the service delivery date for certain applicants who applied for Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) support for equipment, other non-recurring services, and recurring services during the first, second, and third filing windows, recognizing that some did not receive a funding commitment decision letter (FCDL) or revised funding commitment decision letter (RFCDL) approving an appeal, waiver, or post-commitment change request early enough to make full use of the commitment. Next, The FCC waived and extended the service delivery date for recurring service requests for first, second, and third filing window applicants that were approved for new construction services, but were unable to use the full amount of their approved funding for monthly recurring services associated with the construction.
