A Stimulating Conversation on the Broadband Stimulus

A hot topic issue at the MTA Convention was the recently passed economic stimulus bill and the impact it will have on broadband deployments. After talking to a number of people at the MTA confab, the consensus about how the broadband stimulus is going to be managed seems to be, to paraphrase the Hollywood screenwriter William Goldman, “Nobody knows anything.” Alan Weissberger has a very interesting article that will soon be published on this topic. At the MTA, we caught up with Andy Brown of Bennet and Bennet who provided an excellent summary of the package and what the broadband stimulus could mean to independent telcos in this brief video interview.
