Universal Broadband Access

Graphic by Free Press. “Telecom Lobbying January-June, 2009.”

April 8, 2009, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced that it was launching development of a National Broadband Plan and was seeking public input to “ensure every American has access to broadband capabilities.

So, I was not surprised to find the above chart at Free Press, outlining the amount of money being spent to assure industry “input.”

Congress had charged the FCC with coming up with a plan by 2/27/2010 as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009–otherwise known as the stimulus package. d all other interested parties.

The Docket No. is GN 09-51. Oddly, it was not immediately obvious when the deadline for comments was. More research on this later.
