Rural Utilities Service (RUS) and NTIA together awarded over $7 billion to get broadband infrastructure and adoption programs into deserving communities nationwide. But that was just a down payment on our broadband future. What's next?

RUS Administrator Jonathan Adelstein joins host Craig Settles to discuss next steps in the drive to get effective broadband into more communities. Join us as we explore:

  • progress of RUS' BIP grant winners moving projects forward and creating jobs;
  • other RUS programs available for broadband projects and their eligibility requirements;
  • USF reform's potential impact on rural broadband; and
  • how will a gigabit nation look in rural America.

There are many miles to go, literally, before the public and private sectors can sit back and relax our efforts. Craig Settles takes you straight to the source to gather valuable information on programs to help these efforts produce successful broadband projects. You don't want to miss this interview.
