This item over at Ars Technica reports on the recent ALA report on Internet access. Much of the article discusses the difficulties faced by rural libraries in getting access at adequate data rates as well as the funding going with it. According to the article, the ALA report recommends raising the spending caps on the e-rate program. It seems that this might be a difficult recommendation to follow given the problems with the e-rate program found by the GAO.
