What's it going to take to create a realistic broadband stimulus bill that will work?
No one seems to really know, and trouble is, no one is really agreeing. Congress is in the middle, trying to write a broadband stimulus bill that doesn't have a solidly stated goal, has few if any objective definitions, and doesn't contain any mechanism for reporting progress...
I can't think of a single business plan or project that could survive, much less succeed with that kind of foundation.
No matter what you think, the huge stimulus bill, and the small 10% slice that represents the Broadband Bill will be a focal element in President Obama's first and subseqent years in office. Will we see meaningful change...and will our tax dollars have effective positive impact?
Time will tell.
