StimulatingBroadband.com 08/04/2010 San Francisco - The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) today announced $1.2 billion in awards under the federal broadband stimulus program.
Today's announcement comprises the largest single group of awards issued as part of the $7.2 billion program on a single day. Jonathan Adelstein, Administrator of USDA's Rural Utilities Service (RUS), stated in several venues earlier this year that the current Round 2 of the federal broadband stimulus program would amount to "the Superbowl" of the initiative in terms of dollars awarded. Certainly today's announcement proves the early wisdom of Adelstein's comment.
