By Joanna Nelius

As part of the Connect America Fund Phase II grants in 2015, the FCC awarded CenturyLink and Frontier a combined total of $789.1 million in federal funds to expand broadband services to rural Americans. Dec. 31 was the deadline for CenturyLink to roll out 10Mbps/1Mbps broadband to

1.17 million homes and businesses in 33 states, while Frontier needed to expand its broadband services to 659,587 homes and business in 28 states. Both companies have failed, again, to meet their broadband deployment deadlines.
