This week, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) took another historic step toward closing the digital divide in 49 states through the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) Phase I auction. 

National Grange President Betsy Huber said, “The sound regulatory approach and carefully calibrated incentives championed by the FCC have delivered results, yielding $9.2 billion in support during this first Phase. We applaud the continued efforts of the FCC to expand high-speed internet access to rural communities that are too often neglected or underserved.”
