What Are the RDOF Requirements?

The RDOF uses a two-phase, competitive reverse auction that prioritizes higher network speeds and lower latency to ensure the deployment of robust and sustainable high-speed networks to rural areas.

Eligibility

Winning providers must offer both voice and broadband services to areas that previously lacked broadband services of 25/3 Mbps.

Phase I

$16 billion will be made available to areas that are completely unserved by any existing broadband provider. This is underway.

Phase II

$4.4 billion plus any remaining Phase I funds will be made available to partially served areas and those not completed in Phase I.

With RDOF, the higher your bandwidth, the more favorable your bid. Gain network flexibility and offload mobile data traffic to Wi-Fi without increasing your footprint.

Business Demand

Most SMBs are constrained by antiquated phone systems, but cloud VoIP solutions provide advanced features, scalability, and ease of use.

Revenue Boost

Expect to command pricing from $15–35/month/home for residential and $20–50/month/seat for business services, based on your competition and revenue strategies.

ROI Impact

Phone services revenue with 60%+ gross margins will help accelerate the payback period on your broadband build-out.
