Re: This could create jobs...
I would also like to see a WPA type project. But the backbone is pretty much fine, so I do not think that would work. However going out to those areas that are least likely to get any company to move into would. Running fiber optic out to all the farms in the US would generate a tremendous number of jobs. Take a look at the central part of the US (ND straight south to TX) and you have an idea of the type of areas I am talking about. Treat it just like they did when they installed electric and phone to those same areas.

Good to see somebody here that knows our history. Indeed building out a broadband network using a Works Project Administration (WPA) type of model, or better yet a Rural Electrification type of model would do the trick. The is the kind of investment in the infrastructure of the US that makes since. Like the Defense Interstate Highway System which was started in the 1950's when the Pentagon recognized that much better roads where needed if it ever became necessary for large military movement across the country a national broadband "highway' should be considered just as important to the Nation.
