WASHINGTON, June 29, 2009 – This week is likely to be chock-full of broadband-related developments, with rules from the NTIA expected on Tuesday, a Vice Presidential announcement in Pennsylvania scheduled for Wednesday, and a Federal Communications Commission meeting on broadband slated for Thursday.

Meanwhile, states and cities are continuing their extensive engagement in the question of broadband data and mapping. In fact, the Massachusetts Broadband Institute announced on Friday afternoon that it would issue its request for proposals on broadband developments on Monday – positioning their state to beat the federal government to punch. The RFP will be available today, and responses are due on July 8, 2009. Other states are holding strategy sessions about how to best tap into the funds this week.

Similarly, New York City earlier this month unveiled two requests for information about broadband service and delivery.
