FCC Releases Rural Broadband Experiments Application Form. We have Video on How to File for It

Big news from NECA Washington Watch

The Wireline Competition Bureau issued a Public Notice on September 26, 2014, releasing the Rural Broadband Experiments application Form 5610 and providing additional information on completing Form 5610. The Bureau also announced a delay in the opening of the filing window and the corresponding deadline for the submission of rural broadband experiment applications to complete testing of the electronic submission system. The Bureau anticipates testing will be completed in four to six weeks. The Bureau will release a public notice announcing the revised deadline for applications at a later date. The Bureau also postponed the webinar originally scheduled for September 29 until October 9.

An just in time, I wanted to share video taken by Ron Corriveau at COS Systems at FTTH Council conference earlier this month in Minneapolis. He was able to capture the session on Preparing to File for the FCC Rural Broadband Experiments. It was complicated and detailed but if you are thinking about applying, I think it would be extremely valuable. One hiccup – I’ve been trying to get the middle piece to upload to YouTube with less than stellar success. But I figured I’d post what I can and add the third later if I can iron out the wrinkles.

I think the info from the sessions would be extremely valuable if you’re looking to apply. Pretty dry if you aren’t.
