The Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) is a federal funding program expected to allocate $20.4 billion over 10 years toward subsidizing rural broadband networksThe program is planned for implementation upon expiration of the Connect America Fund phase II (CAF-2) program in 2021, hence RDOF is also informally known as CAF-3.
Delivering Competitive Broadband
The RDOF seeks to encourage the deployment of networks that will stand the test of time, placing the highest value on those providing gigabit connections. It requires winning bidders in Phase I to offer the supported broadband and voice service to all eligible homes and small businesses within the awarded areas.
Structure and Schedule
The RDOF will target areas that lack access to 25/3 Mbps broadband services in two phases. During Phase 1 up to $16B will be auctioned for high-cost areas (census blocks) where there is no 25/3 Mbps service at all according to the Form 477 data. The Phase 1 auction will occur in 2020, with the subsidies commencing in 2021.
