BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE). “Ready for Authorization” Announcement Regarding Starry’s Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (“RDOF”) Application:
“Reliable, high-speed broadband access at home has never been more important, and programs like RDOF are critical to ensuring every community in the US has access to this important service.” said Chet Kanojia, Starry’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to bring more Americans the broadband they need. We thank Chairwoman Rosenworcel and the FCC staff for thoroughly reviewing our application and we look forward to beginning our outreach and bringing #HappyInterneting to more communities across the country.”
Starry won RDOF Phase I support for the next 10 years to provide gigabit service to currently underserved census blocks in communities across nine states. The RDOF Phase I program was created to bring fixed broadband service to areas defined as unserviced or without access to 25Mbps download/3Mbps upload broadband speeds. Starry will begin construction in these communities.
