The article presents an analysis on the broadband stimulus package of the U.S. government, which aims to provide broadband services to people who are not capable of doing so. It notes that the next stimulus package collection on March 15, 2010 would still not provide enough broadband to people. It suggests to extend broadband wireless with the use of wireless voice services cell sites. It comments that the government's strategy to create a team for stimulus packages is not a practical method.
