This legislation would authorize rural telephone cooperatives to furnish broadband services either directly or indirectly through an agreement or through a broadband affiliate. 

Under the legislation, the rural telephone cooperatives may provide the broadband service separate from the telephone service and in a different geographic area, however, fund recovery from the Universal Access Fund is prohibited.
