Possible stimulus money to be spent in Ogden Valley for High Speed Internet

Guest post by Broadband Guru

As part of last year's big stimulus bill, $7.2 billion was appropriated to: "expand broadband access and adoption in communities across the U.S".

Qwest Corporation applied for $348,806,468 dollars in the Winter 2010 Broadband Initiatives Program (BIP) round 2 to deploy "last mile" broadband directly to consumers with speeds "up to 40Mbps". The details
are in application id 4823 found in this PDF file:

The application covers rural areas in 14 states, including Ogden Valley!
The Ogden Valley area is designated "UT587" in their application.

You can see a map of the Ogden Valley areas (pretty much the whole valley) that would benefit if the the Qwest application is approved here
