Since the initial deployment of broadband in the late 1990s, Congress has viewed broadband infrastructure deployment as a means towards improving regional economic development, and in the long term, to create jobs. The lack of adequate broadband infrastructure is most pressing in rural America. Historically, the federal government has provided financial assistance to give telecommunications providers the capital to invest in rural infrastructure and to maintain an adequate return on their investment. Currently, there are two ongoing federal vehicles which direct money to fund broadband in rural areas: the broadband and telecommunications programs at the Rural Utilities Service (RUS) of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA), and the Universal Service Fund (USF) programs under the Fed. Communications Comm. (FCC). Congress is assessing how best to leverage these programs to ensure that the goals of the National Broadband Plan including universal broadband service by 2020 are met to the greatest extent possible. Contents of this report: Introduction; RUS Broadband and Telecommunications Programs; Universal Service; RUS and USF: Different Approaches, Shared Goals; Role of Congress. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
