ITEM:  FCC E-Rate Program Announces Carry-Forward of Unused Service Funds for 2015

On May 6, 2015, USAC submitted an estimate of demand for the E-rate program for Funding Year 2015 (July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016) of $3.92 billion, which includes estimated demand for category one services (telecommunications, telecommunications services and Internet access) of $2.255 billion and of $1.665 billion for category two services (internal connections, basic maintenance of internal connections and managed internal broadband services). No unused funding from previous years is needed to fully fund category one services. We therefore direct USAC to fully fund eligible category one services under the new cap. We also direct USAC to fully fund eligible category two services, first using as much as $1.575 billion in E-rate funds unused from previous years, and then using any additional funds needed under the new cap to fully meet demand.

For further information, please contact James Bachtell, Wireline Competition Bureau at (202) 418-7400 or TTY (202) 418-0484.

On May 8, the FCC issued this public notice:
