Mini update on MN PUC upcoming prehearing on LTD Broadband

This seems like an update that’s too small to post, but it is nice to have everything archived in one place. What we learned last week…

The follow up is that a prehearing conference has been set for April 24 and the Institute for Local Self Reliance has submitted a file a notice of appearance.

Today we learned that the Institute for Local Self Reliance will appear at the prehearing conference and all subsequent proceedings in the above-entitled matter.

And some background for folks who are walking into the movie midway…

The Minnesota PUC decided to continue to move forward looking at revoking LTD Broadband’s ETC designation. (Background: LTD was awarded an opportunity to apply for$311 million in federal RDOF funding. They needed the ETC designation from the MN PUC to qualify; industry folks asked the MN PUC to rethink their designation because there were concerns about LTD being able to fulfill the contract. Last month, their application for RDOF was rejected.)
