ITEM:  FCC Released New Data-Based Fact Base Resources for E-Rate Moderization Process

Yesterday, the FCC today released a number of new resources to help provide a data-based fact base to continue the E-rate modernization process. These resources include:

* A blog post by FCC Managing Director Jon Wilkins, "Moving Forward with a Data-Driven E-rate Modernization Process" at: http://www.fcc.gov/blog/moving-forward-data-driven-e-rate-modernization-process

* A public notice "WIRELINE COMPETITION BUREAU RELEASES E-RATE MODERNIZATION STAFF REPORT AND ONLINE MAPS OF SCHOOL AND LIBRARY FIBER CONNECTIVITY DATA" at: https://apps.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DA-14-1177A1.pdf

* An FCC staff white paper from the Wireline Competition Bureau and the Office of Strategic Planning and Policy summarizing what the FCC has learned to date as the result of an extraordinary effort to collect and analyze data, both about the current state of communications technology in America's libraries and schools as well as the way the E-Rate program provides support at: https://apps.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DA-14-1177A2.pdf

* Two maps providing a visualization of current fiber availability for schools and libraries across the country at http://www.fcc.gov/maps/E-rate-fiber-map

The intent of this information release is to help stakeholders and the public navigate the large and data-intensive record in the E-rate Modernization proceeding, particularly as parties respond to the sections of the E-rate Modernization Further Notice regarding long-term funding needs. This information will be valuable to states, schools and libraries in the midst of school/library broadband deployment efforts.
