AP&T receives High-Cost support from the FCC under the Alternative Connect America Cost Model (A-CAM) to meet defined broadband build-out obligations. The A-CAM program provides carriers with funding to upgrade network infrastructure and accelerate the offering of more robust broadband products.
Broadband service providers like AP&T that receive federal “High-Cost” funds are required to test a random sample of customer locations to ensure that quality standards for speed and latency, or response time, are being met.
The Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) administers the Universal Service Fund under the direction of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
