Don’t Wait for BEAD
The broadband world is on the edge of its collective seat while the
impending $42.5 billion Broadband Equity Access and Deployment
(BEAD) program is being rolled out with little changes day by day.
Meanwhile, other broadband funding programs are getting ready to take
applications, already taking applications, or even awarding funding at the time of this publication.
This white paper explores these established broadband funding programs and offers recommendations on how a broadband network operator can
maximize its chances of making a successful application. Competition for funding is fierce. It’s not uncommon for a program to receive applications
for five times the total funding available.
