US Congress passes broadband open access stimulus

$2.88b will be spent on extending broadband into under-served areas, with open access and net neutrality provisions built into the grants. Republican objections were voted down with the obvious response that "this is public money so the whole public should get to use it".
(C) operate basic and advanced broadband service networks on an open access basis; 
(D) operate advanced wireless broadband service on a wireless open access basis; and
(E) adhere to the principles contained in the Federal Communications Commission’s broadband policy statement (FCC 05-151, adopted August 5, 2005).
