FCC Actions for Remote Learning/Work

FCC has waived the gift rules during the COVID-19 outbreak, until September 30, 2020. This waiver will allow health care providers, schools, and libraries to accept improved capacity, Wi-Fi hotspots, networking gear, or other equipment or services to support doctors and patients, teachers and students, and librarians and patrons during the coronavirus outbreak. For example, some providers have expressed interest in providing free network upgrades for hospitals that need more robust connections to treat patients via telemedicine and free connected devices and hotspots for students who will be taking classes at home. This waiver will enable them to do such things.

FCC confirmed community use of E-Rate supported wi-fi connections permitted on school campus and library property during school and library closures. This confirmation gave schools and libraries reassurance that their connection, if partially funded by federal funds, can be open to the public who may need to access WiFi from their parking lots. Each individual school and library will establish their own policies regarding use of their network during closures, including hours of use.
