The Federal Communications Commission voted [May 19, 2022] to seek 
comment on a proposal to provide additional universal service support to 
certain rural carriers in exchange for increasing deployment to more 
locations at higher speeds. The proposal would make changes to the 
Alternative Connect America Cost Model (A-CAM) program, with the goal of 
achieving widespread deployment of faster 100/20 Mbps broadband service 
throughout the rural areas served by rural carriers currently receiving 
A-CAM support.
