​​On May 30, NRECA sent a letter to NTIA Administrator Davidson expressing concern with one-size-fits-all implementation of the low-cost broadband service option requirement that will likely deter participation by NRECA members. The letter urges NTIA to reject any state Initial Proposal Volume II (IPV2) plan with a one-size-fits-all rate for the low-cost broadband service option and to specifically urge states to avoid such an approach. Instead, NTIA should work with states to provide subgrantees flexibility on how to define the low-cost broadband service option that can best accommodate the unique characteristics of each ISP and rural, high-cost community. State plan provisions on low-cost broadband service options must not just address affordability but also ensure the long-term economic viability of awarded projects.​
