Hazlett and Wallsten write Op-Ed on USF in The Hill


Thomas Hazlett and Scott Wallsten, senior fellow at the Technology Policy Institute, wrote an op-ed published on TheHill.com. The piece, entitled “Taking From the poor and giving to the ConnectED,” criticizes the FCC’s high cost and low reward spending on the Universal Service Fund. $30 billion dollars have been spent on the E-Rate program (now ConnectED) since 1998, with no clear indication that the program is effective. The entire op-ed can be read here.
