High Cost Universal Broadband (HUBB) Reporting

CORRECTION

As a follow up to the “Just So You Know” that was released yesterday, January 14, 2020, we have confirmed with the FCC that 2019 Deployment data must be filed in the HUBB by March 1, 2020 for carriers who previously did not have any reporting or deployment obligations prior to the FCC’s 2018 Rate-of-Return Reform Order. We apologize for the confusion.

To recap the reporting requirements for rate-of-return CAF-BLS recipients who previously did not have any reporting or deployment obligations prior to the FCC’s 2018 Rate-of- Return Reform Order, they will be required to report in the HUBB by March 1, 2020, all locations where 25/3 Mbps or greater was deployed for calendar year 2019. In addition, carriers in this situation must also report by March 1, 2021 all geo-located locations where 25/3 Mbps or greater was deployed since May 25, 2016.
