Only unrestrictive companies should get this money
They should give very limited money if any to any company that has download caps as in you can have broadband but you can only download 5gb per month. With those kinds of caps why would anyone even need to have more than dialup since you can use 5gb+ just viewing a bunch of Youtube video's in the course of a single weekend. Also AT&T should not be allowed either for trying crap like saying online gaming is not broadband.
These funds should go to companies that offer true broadband with no caps and no restrictions on use. If a telecommunication company like sprint or AT&T decide they will restrict usage and want to act like it's 1995 still then let them find their own funding privately since I don't want my tax dollars used to help some company that uses these gimmicks to pad their bottom line.
It's 2009 and they should have the infrastructure in place by now for true unrestricted broadband already in place.
