USA - Administration announces recipients of USD 182 millions broadband stimulus

[barrons] Vice-President Joe Biden announced the recipients of $182 million of the grants from the broadband-stimulus package and effectively delayed the announcement of the bulk of the grants from this month until March 2010. The government also committed to announce a total of $2 billion project awards within 75 days (implying early March).

Recall, the first round of awards had been previously delayed from Nov. 7 until December and was originally expected to total $4 billion. The timeline for awards is clearly sliding out.
