FCC’s Digital Literacy Corps

There is a great post over at Libraries and Transliteracy discussing the recent proposal for the FCC’s Digital Literacy Corps.

The proposal calls for:

The plan also calls for every American community to have at least one “anchor” institution, such as a school, library or hospital, that has ultra-high-speed Internet access. The FCC defines that as at least a gigabit per second, 10 times faster than the 100 megabits per second envisioned for home connections.

How awesome is that?  What will the implications for libraries be?  Funding?  Training?
