Based on the current record in its Lifeline/LinkUp proceeding, the Federal Communications Commission has identified four issues in particular that merit further inquiry: designing and implementing a Lifeline/Link Up broadband pilot program to evaluate whether and how Lifeline/Link Up can effectively support broadband adoption by low-income households; limiting the availability of Lifeline support to one discount per residential address; revising the definition of Link Up service, as well as the possible reduction of the $30 reimbursement amount for Link Up support; and improving methods for verifying continued eligibility for the program. The FCC seeks further comment focused on these areas.

Comments are due August 26; reply comments are due September 2.
