The House Rural Broadband Caucus plans a staff briefing today on changes to the FCC’s Mobility Fund. Panelists are US Cellular’s Grant Spellmeyer, Mosaik’s Chip Strange, Cellcom’s Larry Lueck and the Competitive Carriers Association’s Tim Donovan. “As demand for spectrum to power internet-connected devices skyrockets and the need to extend broadband service in rural areas emerges as a national priority, both the Federal Communications Commission and Congress are looking for competitive ways to distribute limited federal funds and resources based on reliable data to preserve and expand mobile broadband services,” reads the invite from six House offices leading the caucus. The event is not open to the public or press.
