The FCC deadline for submitting estimates to replace Huawei and ZTE network equipment has passed. Join this panel of rural wireless carriers who are in the midst of their network migration to learn how they are progressing through the FCC’s daunting Reimbursement Program. Is there enough funding?

This panel will discuss the opportunities and pitfalls of the program and how most rural carriers are taking their Chinese lemons and turning them into lemonade.
