Share Article

The Report on Shovel-Ready Broadband Projects is focused on providing your company with critical information about the new stimulus act. The twice-monthly report, based in Washington, D.C., gives your company a seat at the table regarding the $7 billion in broadband loans and grants. It is a critical instrument that every proposing company should have in its toolbox.

Chaffee Fiber Optics is pleased to announce that it has begun publishing The Report on Shovel-Ready Broadband Projects. Companies now have a source of information they can refer to as they go about getting broadband funding from the recently enacted stimulus Act.

The Report focuses on funding efforts by both Commerce's NTIA and Agriculture's Office of Rural Utilities. It includes comprehensive and up-to-date information on the grants and loans coming from these funding agents. It includes interviews with policymakers, program managers, state officials and program leaders.

Some $7 billion will be spent on federally funded broadband projects over the next 18 months, nearly $400 million per month. The focus will largely be in getting broadband to unserved and underserved sections of America. The Report will ferret out the information companies need to best apply for these funds.

There are many questions about broadband funding that have yet to be addressed. How will terms like "broadband," "unserved," and "underserved," be defined? How important will it be for independent companies to connect with their states in making their application?

The federal program already is off and running. NTIA already has begin interviewing project managers. An important joint meeting is being held here in Washington on March 10. Let The Report on Shovel-Ready Broadband Projects help provide the edge.

The Report's editorial team will be led by David Chaffee, who has 27 years of experience covering broadband, and a similar history covering Washington, D.C. He has written two books on fiber optics and formerly worked as Corporate Editor at Ciena Corporation.
