NTIA Sets Another $63 Million in Grants For Broadband Adoption

The National Telecommunications & Information
Administration just announced another $63 million in grants for broadband
adoption, part of the $7 billion-plus being handed out by the Department of
Commerce and the USDA as part of the broadband portion of the stimulus program.

The new grants are a mix of infrastructure and adoption
programs, including a Michigan State University
computer center and a University
of Massachusetts adoption
education program.

The newest grants go to Massachusetts,
Michigan and North Carolina and come a day after NTIA
released new bidding rules it hopes will make it easier for the second, and
final, round of bidding starting next month.

NTIA has given out about $200 million so far.
