National Broadband Plan II

The FCC has been making changes to the official FCC National Broadband Plan per updates. One update, the form 477 data will now be available. See cryptic notes here.

I still have not read the plan yet. Here's one blogger's highlights though.

It's going to require money -- and lots of it; spectrum - more than 500 MHz worth; more money to buy or lease spectrum and build out the network with it; and data - so we know where to build fiber.

Oh, and another point: This is just a Plan - a recommendation. It's not law. Nor is it formal. So breathe - and start thinking about your own regional broadband plan!
