I use Google to find things mostly.  I'm not being glib, try it
yourself, after a few weeks, you'll find loads of development funding
to talk about interconnection issues/regulatroy reform, but very
little to actually pay for the kit/expertise need to do 
self-provisioning of bandwidth for LDCs.

Very discouraging actually.
