FCC Announces Resources To Assist Filers With Bulk Fixed Broadband Availability Challenges

Virtual Technical Assistance Workshop on November 30, 4pm EST

The FCC’s Broadband Data Task Force (“Task Force”) has announced the availability of technical resources, including a November 30th workshop, to assist entities preparing to file bulk challenges to fixed broadband availability data as part of the Broadband Data Collection (“BDC”). The FCC will publish the pre-production broadband maps on November 18, and broadband providers are encouraged to begin review of the maps to identify potential errors and assess the need for bulk availability challenges. Interested parties may register to attend the workshop at https://fcc-gov.zoomgov.com/webinar/register/WN_F37YX5hRQJCHrVmLZsnqAg.

The Task Force has already provided access to two videos that provide an overview of the fixed bulk filing challenge (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKL_p8ieFDo) and that walk filers through the process of submitting such challenge data in the BDC system (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaOlwJN_1RY). In September the Task Force released the data specifications for bulk fixed availability challenges, which is available at: https://us-fcc.box.com/v/bdc-bulk-fixed-challenge-spec.
Please contact Robin Tuttle at [email protected] or Dee Herman at [email protected] if you have any questions about the BDC bulk fixed availability challenges.
