The $6 Billion should be for the Telecom side only. There are Power, Telecom
and last Broadband divisions with Broadband working out of the Telecom side
but numbers are kept separate. Broadband started in 2004 I thought.  Was
given numbers for broadband in a seminar were $ 1.2 Billion loan guarantees
and 175 grants for $ 85 Million since inception.

Used to be a RUS contractor and helped with the rewrite of the 515 outside
plant contract.

If you look last years awards, you will see what I mean (attached).

I think now they are going to try to fund the most populations in
unserved/underserved areas. Of course, IMHO.
