A federal appeals court on Friday upheld a $2-billion annual federal program to subsidize Internet connections for schools and libraries. The U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals backed the Federal Communications Commission's decisions to allow the subsidies to be used to pay directly for Internet access as well as needed internal wiring at schools and libraries. Major telephone carriers such as GTE Corp. had argued that the money could only be spent on telecommunications services.
