Send an email NOW to the and ask to have the Other Web Sites section REMOVED IMMEDIATELY.

I was looking through the FCC broadband.html page today and was dismayed to see a list of "other web sites." This list is wrong on many levels and should not be included in a federal government site.

If they wish to feature other federal government initiatives that are utilizing/promoting/funding broadband, they should include those. The list presented here of those institutions is horribly incomplete.

It should NOT include nonprofits or state information sources. They are tacitly endorsing practices and doing a grave disservice to the rest of us who are working hard to promote deployment and adoption of broadband.

Many organizations have created Web sites that address various aspects of broadband services, including funding, technology, content, and the overall availability of broadband.
