FCC WAIVES RURAL HEALTH CARE AND E-RATE PROGRAM GIFT RULES TO PROMOTE CONNECTIVITY FOR HOSPITALS AND STUDENTS DURING CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC 

WASHINGTON, March 18, 2020—The Federal Communications Commission today announced important changes to the Rural Health Care (RHC) and E-Rate programs that will make it easier for broadband providers to support telehealth and remote learning efforts during the coronavirus pandemic. Specifically, the FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau has waived the gift rules until September 30, 2020 to enable service providers to offer, and RHC and ERate program participants to solicit and accept, improved connections or additional equipment for telemedicine or remote learning during the coronavirus outbreak.
