Kewaunee County Administrator is pleased to hear the Federal Communications Commission will renew a rural broadband subsidy program. That will provide rural communities $20.4-billion over ten years. Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt applauds anything to improve broadband access. Although, he'd like to see more details on how the funding would be distributed.
The FCC spent $34.5 billion on rural-broadband network subsidy programs from 2010 to 2017, according to the Government Accountability Office.
