Connect America Fund
Excellence in Communications Engineering
The Connect America Fund (CAF) has been established as a response by the FCC to reform and modernize the Universal Services Fund (USF) and Intercarrier Compensation (ICC) system. The goals of the CAF include eliminating the voice-centric model of the USF and replacing it with a broadband-based model, as well as accelerating broadband build-out in rural areas. These changes affect every Local Exchange Carrier that currently participates in the USF program, and Mid-State can assist you in determining the course of action that is in the best interests of your company and customers.
