In an interview, Lawrence Strickling, the Obama administration's telecommunications policy adviser and administrator of the Commerce Department's National Telecommunications Information Administration (NTIA), talked about the broadband stimulus funding. NTIA still had about $2.5 billion of its $4.7 billion to hand out at press time. Strickling said they have a statutory deadline for September 30. As of today, they are on track to get all of that money out by the end of September. Part of the NTIA's charter is advising the administration on Internet governance. Strickling hasn't had a chance to study the seven Internet-governance principles agreed to by Google and Verizon Communications in any detail, but he takes on the larger issue, on net neutrality, the administration has been strong from the start that they support an open Internet.
