Broadband Policy Status in MN & US

I’ve been waiting on official word that Governor Pawlenty signed the Broadband Study Bill. He signed on April 17, but official notice has been slow to surface – but I just found a scanned copy of the bill and the signature on the GIG Group’s web site.

So I’m going to call that official and share the news here.

Also I wanted to share a great map of broadband policy activity in the US. The map was created and kindly shared by the GIG group. It gives a nice easy (very high level) view of what’s happening around the country.
