FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr stated in a letter on Friday that despite receiving $42.5 billion in money from the so-called bipartisan infrastructure plan, President Joe Biden has not been able to provide high-speed internet to a single American.

Congress granted the Biden administration $42.45 billion in 2021 so that millions of Americans may have access to high-speed Internet. Years later, it hasn’t even managed to link one person to those funds. Indeed, it now states that no building projects will even begin until 2025 at the latest,” the commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) wrote.

“In the meantime, the Biden administration has been adding a partisan political agenda—a liberal wish list that has no bearing on bringing Americans together—on top of this $42.45 billion initiative. He continued, “mandates related to climate change, technological biases, DEI standards, preference for government-run networks, and more.”

In particular, Carr is criticizing the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) initiative, which provided $42.45 billion to promote the adoption and deployment of broadband.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), sometimes referred to as the “bipartisan infrastructure bill,” is what started the program. As Breitbart News reported, the law included numerous leftist carveouts and no conservative achievements.

It would appear that the BEAD program has not been very successful in the two years since Biden passed the infrastructure bill, which Congress enacted in 2021.

The IIJA provided cash for Biden to build only “seven or eight” electric vehicle charging stations; Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg found it difficult to explain this as well.

“The chronology is flawed. The Biden Administration’s policy cuts are considerably more severe. Carr told Breitbart News that the Biden administration had established a $42.45 billion initiative that would fail and disempower rural communities.

Carr claimed that the BEAD initiative cannot bridge the “digital divide,” or the gap between high-speed internet users and those without.

“The Biden Administration is heading straight for a broadband miscalculation. The FCC commissioner stated, “The Biden Administration is squandering the moment by putting partisan political ambitions above wise policy, even though Congress has authorized enough money to bridge the digital divide.” It is doing this through rate regulation, union, technological, and DEI preferences, as well as imposing restrictions on government-run networks. All of these things pose a threat to rural areas.
