FCC Announces $18 Billion E-ACAM Funds to Expand Broadband in Rural Areas

The United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has been implementing various programs to bridge the digital divide and provide high-speed internet in rural areas. One such program is the Connect America Fund (CAF), which provides financial support to telecom carriers that offer broadband and voice services in high-cost areas. However, there were concerns about the accuracy of CAF’s cost model and its ability to determine appropriate support amounts for eligible carriers. In response to these concerns, the FCC launched a proceeding to develop an alternative cost model that would better reflect the costs of deploying broadband and voice services in rural areas.

The Enhanced Alternative Connect America Cost Model (EACAM) was developed by the FCC in 2016. It is designed to determine the amount of support that should be provided to eligible telecommunications carriers in order to deploy broadband and voice services to rural areas.  In October of 2023, ECAM announced the release of $18 Billion to rural network providers.  These funds will be used for internet connectivity builds,  network equipment and purchasing IPv4 addresses.

EACAM is a forward-looking cost model that takes into account various factors such as technology, geography, and density to determine the cost of deploying broadband and voice services in a particular area. It also includes updated data on construction costs, equipment prices, and labor expenses.

The model allows for flexibility in calculating support amounts based on different scenarios, such as varying service speeds and deployment timelines. This is important because the cost of deploying broadband can vary significantly depending on the type of technology used and the terrain of the area.

EACAM also incorporates a competitive bidding mechanism to ensure that support amounts are reasonable and cost-effective. This involves using market-based benchmarks to determine the maximum amount of support a carrier can receive for deploying broadband in a particular area. This promotes competition among carriers, leading to more efficient use of funds and better services for consumers.

The EACAM program has several benefits over the previous cost model used by the FCC. One major advantage is its ability to accurately reflect the costs of deploying broadband and voice services in rural areas, ensuring that eligible carriers receive adequate support to provide these services.

The competitive bidding mechanism also promotes efficiency and transparency in the distribution of funds, reducing potential waste and abuse. This results in better use of taxpayer dollars and more effective implementation of universal service policies.

Additionally, EACAM allows for flexibility in calculating support amounts, taking into account the unique characteristics and challenges of each rural area. This ensures that support is tailored to the specific needs of each community, leading to more targeted and impactful broadband deployment.

Here is a list of rural network providers that were awarded funds over a 15-year period.
