CenturyLink Supports Coalition Comments On CAF I Eligibility Requirements
CenturyLink supports the joint comments filed Jan. 28 by the United States Telecom Association and the Independent Telephone and Telecommunications Alliance on the Connect American Fund (CAF) Phase I eligibility requirements for 2013.
“CenturyLink hopes that the FCC will move quickly to modify its Connect America Fund eligibility requirements to achieve the fund’s purpose of bringing broadband to more Americans, a goal we share,” said Steve Davis, CenturyLink executive vice president for public policy and government relations. “We look forward to working with the commission to bring broadband service, and all the economic and educational opportunities that go with it, to thousands of American homes and businesses in otherwise uneconomical high-cost areas. We’re also investing millions of dollars of our own money to bring broadband to more of our customers in high-cost, rural areas of the country.”
