EAGLE-Net will choose an independent telecom to run its statewide broadband network in Colorado by the end of next month, agency officials said Wednesday. They also explained to a state legislative committee why the agency has barely spent any of its $100 million federal stimulus grant. EAGLE-Net's plan to serve schools, libraries and other anchor institutions has run into delays, and the agency lost much of its $17 million loan. At the hearing, executives said they could earmark some of the federal funds for operations and defended their decision not to release certain financial information.
