Ars Technica: FCC gives ISPs another $563 million to build rural-broadband networks

Ars Technica: FCC gives ISPs another $563 million to build rural-broadband networks. “More than 220,000 unserved rural homes and businesses in 24 states will get broadband access because of funding authorized yesterday by the Federal Communications Commission, the agency said. In all, the FCC authorized more than $563 million for distribution to ISPs over the next decade. It’s the latest payout from the commission’s Connect America Fund, which was created in 2011.”
