$150-in-5 is forever

As I was poking around in the text of the actual rules at the end of the E-Rate Modernization Order, I noticed something else that will be significant if the FCC fails to take any further action: if you apply for C2 funding in FY 2015 or 2016, you're stuck with $150-in-5 forever.

 The rule that sunsets the $150-in-5 Rule, §54.502(c), says that in FY 2017 and later, the 2-in-5 Rule kicks back in for applicants "which did not receive funding for category two services in funding years 2015 and/or 2016...." So for applicants which receive funding in FY 2015 or 2016, the 2-in-5 Rule never kicks back in.

So as you're planning for FY 2020 and beyond, keep that in mind.
