Senator wants transparency in federal broadband grants

U.S. Sen. Angus King has sent a letter to federal regulators seeking clarity about how FairPoint Communications will be held accountable as it uses millions in federal subsidies to expand broadband Internet access in rural Maine. The letter comes three months after the Federal Communications Commission announced it was awarding $13.3 million a year for six years to FairPoint to help offset the high cost of providing broadband access to areas of rural Maine.
