This event has passed. Please see the below for slides and recording below.
The Colorado Broadband Office (CBO) is hosted an “Ask the Experts” webinar providing interested applicants with critical information on how to navigate the FCC RDOF Auction 904 process, apply for eligible telecommunications carrier (ETC) status, and discuss available funding for Colorado locations. Download the agenda.
We recommend watching the recording of the FCC’s RDOF 904 Auction Overview webinar from May 5, 2020 for a working understanding of the 904 Auction and in preparation for the CBO Ask the Experts webinar.
In January, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) established the $20.4 billion Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF). The Phase 1 auction (Auction 904) will award up to $16 billion for the deployment of voice and fixed broadband services to approximately 5.9 million unserved locations nationwide. The auction is currently scheduled to begin October 22, 2020.
Initial eligibility data indicates nearly 99,000 eligible locations in Colorado totaling nearly $700 million in funding over 10 years.
