Law360 (July 6, 2018) -- A coalition of radio frequency
engineering firms told the Federal Communications Commission on
Thursday that Verizon has "grossly overstated" its nationwide 4G LTE
coverage, hurting the mobile wireless carriers the engineering firms
serve because the carriers can only get needed FCC funding to boost
coverage in areas where coverage is low.

The FCC's Mobility Fund II will provide as much as $4.53 billion over
the next decade to subsidize mobile broadband deployment in areas
lacking 4G LTE coverage. The subsidies were awarded at auction to bids
that most efficiently provide coverage to underserved areas.
