WASHINGTON, May 18, 2009 – The federal government’s Commerce Department is at least one month off from finalizing the rules that will govern the broadband stimulus funds. But that isn’t stopping an array of states from getting started on a variety of broadband data projects.
The state of Maine’s ConnectME Authority Request for Proposal (RFP) is due on Tuesday. The RFP calls for a contractor to develop a “geographic statewide inventory of ‘wired’ (i.e. DSL, cable modem, fiber) and ‘fixed-wireless’ high speed internet service to identify where current terrestrial broadband service and infrastructure exists and does not exist at a street-level of detail.”
The Maine effort is one of dozens by states seeking to get a handle on broadband data – which many observers believe will be vital for public and private entities seeking to utilize federal broadband stimulus dollars.
