It's worse than that. That money has already been spent here at least once, and the build out never occurred, but the money is locked up or disappeared. WV had a federally funded Broadband fund of $30 mil in 2006 I believe and I don't believe one rural customer benefited from that, nor will they benefit from this.
I believe Verizon was a big recipent of the funds, then they up and left shortly afterwards.
That was before the $126 mil broadband stimulus funds.
