Some of these companies are very small rural outfits, where a 5 figure
fine isn't exactly pocket change.
I wonder how the supply chain issues are affecting this. I know a rural
electric company that had a (just before pre-RDOF) grant for setting up
Internet that couldn't get the routers they'd ordered and paid for; they
were back-ordered for months. They had to scramble and get loaners out
of a reseller's demo pool to meet their grant timeline requirements.
