Eligibility Requirements

Any last mile telecommunications provider that provides broadband service may apply for an award in one or more categories. The provider does not have to be a provider of franchised video services. Depending upon the specific award, the provider does not even have to produce the content themselves, as long as they are enabling the production of the content either through in-kind or financial support of a third-party (e.g. support of schools, local churches, etc. who may be producing the content).
