Shorman Testifies on Broadband Stimulus Funding

February , 10 , 2011

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Gary Shorman, President & CEO of Eagle Communications, Inc., today testified  before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, as part of an oversight hearing on the Recovery Act’s broadband stimulus funding program.

Shorman highlighted a $101 million award that is being used to “overbuild” a broadband network in Hays, KS where Eagle and AT&T already provide service. Eagle and NCTA both have objected to the project because millions of federal dollars will be spent to build a network in a well-served community while other unserved areas will remain without any access to broadband.
