FCC's Broadband Plan Delayed By a Month

The Federal Communications Commission says it will need another month to deliver its national broadband plan. The deadline to originally submit the plan to the U.S. Congress was Feb. 17. The FCC has been using stimulus funds and has hired many consultants to put together a plan that looks at getting affordable broadband to all Americans. FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, while speaking at the GigaOM office yesterday, said that getting the National Broadband Plan right was one of his top priorities.
