FCC announces latest RDOF winners including $15M to Qwest in Minnesota

The FCC announces the latest (8th round) RDOF Winners

By this Public Notice, the Rural Broadband Auctions Task Force (RBATF), Wireline Competition Bureau (WCB or Bureau), and the Office of Economics and Analytics (OEA) announce they are ready to authorize Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (Auction 904) support for the Auction 904 winning bids identified in Attachment A of this Public Notice.

There is one winner in Minnesota:

Qwest Corporation
Census blocks: 516
Locations: 3,265
Total Award: $15,646,133.10

On a related note, CNS has updated their interactive map to include the latest awards.

No awards or mention, that I could see, of LTD Broadband, which leaves a lot of people, especially in Minnesota, in the lurch about will they or won’t they get funding and how can they prepare for their next steps.
