Wireless Operators May Receive Tax Credits
Washington is considering granting wireless network providers and other businesses that provide broadband tax credits in an attempt to bolster the U.S. economy. In its current form, the proposal would give a 10% tax credit to companies that build high-speed Internet in rural and under-served areas. Those companies can get an additional 10% break if they build faster Internet services. The idea had originally been limited to wired broadband providers, but now includes tax breaks for wireless broadband providers, such as AT&T Mobility, Sprint, Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile USA. The exact details of the stimulus package have not been finalized.
