WASHINGTON, June 8, 2009 – The NTIA faces a choice between scoring broadband grants according to a common criteria, or meeting the manifold objectives of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, panelists said at the Broadband Stimulus National Town Hall Meeting on June 4.
Speaking at an event co-hosted by BroadbandCensus.com and TV Worldwide, Joanne Hovis of Columbia Telecommunications Corporation said that the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Agency and the Agriculture Department’s Rural Utilities Service must be cognizant of multiple objectives as they design their scoring system.
Scott Wallsten of the Technology Policy Institute said that it was as important to track projects that are not funded by the broadband stimulus effort as it is track those that receive funding. That way, researchers and policy-makers can have the most complete picture of the impact that stimulus spending has had on the broadband landscape.
