Millions Said to Be Wasted on U.S. Broadband Expansion – Bloomberg

Millions Said to Be Wasted on U.S. Broadband Expansion  according to Bloomberg on news of hearings in the U.S. House Energy and Commerce committee’s subcommittee on communications.

“The government has spent millions on equipment it did not need and on stringing fiber to areas that already had fiber,” Representative Greg Walden, of Oregon, said in an e-mail yesterday…

“There are undoubtedly some success stories but, overall, was the program well-conceived and well-implemented?” Walden said. “I won’t tolerate any waste or abuse, and it appears we’ve uncovered millions that fit that category.”
