Remember that Broadband for Everyone promise? How’s that working out?

President Biden touted his massive $42B Broadband ‘Equity’ plan in 2021. Since then not a single American has been connected to the internet under the plan.

Meanwhile, the Biden administration has been critical of Elon Musk and his Starlink project, and they did cancel a $900 million deal that would have allowed Starlink to service rural areas. There is some talk Biden might ask Elon to get involved because the $42 billion “Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) program” has been a bit of a slow burner.

Despite the grand announcement and allocation of funds back in 2021, it appears that not a single person has been connected to high-speed internet as a direct result of this program.

As the Biden Administration moves slower than a dial-up modern loading a photograph broadband providers are backing away from the heavy handed government regulations.
