The Connect America Fund (CAF) is the FCC's program to expand access to voice and broadband services for areas where they are unavailable. Through CAF Phase II, the FCC provides funding to local telephone companies to subsidize the cost of building new network infrastructure or performing network upgrades to provide voice and broadband service in areas where it is lacking. Moving forward, CAF-II will use competitive bidding to efficiently support the deployment of networks providing both voice and broadband service, thereby expanding broadband availability to millions more unserved Americans.Contact:
