AT&T gave FCC false broadband-coverage data in parts of 20 states

AT&T discovered its error after the FCC asked carriers to update their Form 477 filings in preparation for Phase 1 of the commission’s $20.4 billion Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF). The FCC is targeting Phase 1 funding of up to $16 billion at census blocks where there isn’t any 25/3Mbps home-Internet service. The program is paid for by Americans through fees imposed on phone bills. – Jon Brodkin, Ars Technica ยป
