More Rural Broadband

Last week, the USDA awarded $11.3 million in community broadband grants, money which was part of a $1.4 billion in loans promised to rural telecoms by Secretary Ann Veneman in 2002. Well, yesterday the USDA was at it again, as the Rural Utilities Service (RUS) announced that no less than $2.211 billion will be made available in loans and loan guarantees to provide broadband to underserved communities.
