About the Firm.
Broadband Legal Strategies is a boutique telecommunications law firm specializing in universal service programs, including E-rate and Rural Health Care/Healthcare Connect.

Our Advantage.
Gina Spade, the founder of Broadband Legal Strategies, led the E-rate policy team at the Federal Communications Commission for six years and led the Rural Health Care policy team for four years.

Gina has had a hand in every major E-rate decision by the Commission since 2006, including the 2014 reform orders and the 2010 Sixth Report and Order. She has also managed oversight of E-rate and Rural Health Care audits and assessments and advised the FCC’s chief financial officer on E-rate financial issues.

Our Mission.
Broadband Legal Strategies wants to bring its FCC experience and knowledge of both program rules and processes to help clients comply with the E-rate and Rural Health Care program requirements. Congress established these important universal service programs nearly 20 years so that schools, districts, libraries, health care facilities, or states can reach their telecommunications and technology goals. Broadband Legal believes every eligible entity deserves the funding they are entitled to under the law. Broadband Legal can also assist service providers with questions about the rules and the process.
