It's too long to post here, but I have blogged about some of the specifics that have emerged at Anvil Partners -- check the details there, and for other links to additional information. Basically, the broadband stimulus money has a time component -- it must be spent by Sept. 30, 2010 -- there's not much time to spend $7 Billion, and as small as NTIA currently is, this will be a big job for that agency. Although application guidelines and terminology haven't been fully determined yet, communities should be considering their options and developing proposals. The NTIA will offer an RFP and the race will likely go to the swift.
If your community would benefit from increased broadband connectivity, I'd suggest you find out more and get cracking!
