The initial report generated by the Governor’s Broadband Task Force has finally been released. What’s odd about the article is there is no reference on where to get the report. But I’ve got yer report right here (PDF 23 pgs., app 1 MB). If you’ll recall our own Peter Pennekamp and Rollin Richmond are among the 21 members of the task force and charged with representing all of rural California.

The report makes several recommendations and lays out specific actions the state can take to improve telecommunications. Some of the actions have fairly tight time frames. It will be interesting to see what actions are really taken and how soon.
