It took a pandemic to tell us what we already knew. “We must invest more in our broadband network infrastructure.”   Together, federal (NTIA, FCC, USDA), state, county and local governments , are all jumping in, promising a surge of 2 to 3x  funding over the next few years.  How will these programs be managed?
