CenturyLink took FCC cash, failed to deploy all required broadband in Montana and 22 other states – FCC approves more funds for broadband, voice service in rural America
CenturyLink notified the Federal Communications Commission that it “may not have reached the deployment milestone” in 23 states and that it hit the latest deadline in only 10 states.
For CenturyLink, the states where the ISP seemingly failed to meet the deadline are Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.
CenturyLink has a history of mistreating customers.
The Federal Communications Commission is spending more than $100 million in its Connect America program to pay phone and other companies to deliver broadband and voice communications to areas lacking adequate service, including parts of rural Idaho.
