Welcome to

We launched in March 2009 just as federal agencies began to implement the "broadband stimulus" provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). By the hectic months of that summer, we built a reputation as the go-to site for information on the policies, progress, and politics of that $7.2 billion federal program.

Since early 2013, the site has been maintained as an archives of the often daily reporting on the program.
