For once, I'm not the most pessimistic

E-Rate Central's weekly newsbrief is less hopeful than I was in my prognostication: I said the FCC would keep scraping surpluses until they can cover Priority Two requests for 90% applicants, they said that either there will be no P2 funding, or it will be pro-rated for 90% applicants.

Please, not pro-rating.  That leaves applicants having to guess what percentage of total cost will have to come from their budget.

If you haven't signed the petition to increase funding for the E-Rate, do it now.  Please.

  1. Dan,

    Read the newsbrief's conclusion. After laying out the no funding and the proration options, it suggests that the FCC put off a decision while it waits to see if funds can be raised. "Scraping," as you put it, was the third and preferred option. I just hope it's enough.
