I'm sure I remember hearing from someone that the timelines for  
disbursement of stimulus money were tight enough that many people  
expected much of the money to remain unspent.

Does narrowing the scope of the funding to mandate fibre have the  
effect of funding more and better infrastructure, or will it simply  
result in less money being made available? Does it matter?
