FCC Announces 5G Effort to Boost Rural Communities and Businesses
   

The Rural & Agriculture Council of America (RACA) applauds today’s announcement by The White House and FCC to invest in improving next generation connectivity and access for rural Americans. Under the FCC’s 5G Fast Plan, President Trump and FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai announced the largest commercial spectrum auction in FCC history, freeing up more airwaves for the private sector to enhance their quality of service and lay the foundation for networks of the future.

RACA Vice President Chris Skorupa issued the following statement:

“Their announcement of a $20.4 billion ‘Rural Digital Opportunity Fund’ will help underserved areas’ access to broadband over the next 10 years through a series of incentives intended to stimulate private sector competition and investment in much-needed broadband infrastructure".

“These efforts demonstrate that private sector competition, not government nationalization of networks, is the best path forward to stimulating local economies and bridging the digital divide in rural communities across America.”
