The need for robust stimulus package provides a unique opportunity to spur the deployment of broadband telecommunications, and as ITIF has documented, to create or retain a substantial number of jobs. But unless broadband stimulus measures are crafted in a way that spurs the most investment for a given amount of public support, the opportunity for economic stimulus and broadband deployment will be reduced.  In this event, we discuss current and proposed broadband stimulus proposals and what provisions are most important for ensuring the largest possible impact on broadband deployment.
