Frontier has skewered ICF's conclusions and called the consultant's report "worthless."
The Broadband Deployment Council distributed $2.05 million in state grants for broadband expansion projects last year, with plans to give out another $2 million this year.
Fisher said current grant recipients and companies that plan to apply for state funds want to know whether their broadband projects could connect to the stimulus-funded statewide fiber network.
"The question has been asked," Fisher said. "It's going to be asked again. This whole process needs to be transparent."
Fisher said he plans to raise the issue again at today's Broadband Council meeting in Charleston.
Alsop said the governor's office plans to set up procedures for companies that want to tap into the broadband network and sign agreements with Frontier.
"Any applicant that wants to do that will be able to do that through the state," Alsop said. "We'll be happy to hear their questions and work with them on any issues."
This isn't the first time Broadband Council members have asked about the state's $126.3 million broadband expansion project.
At previous meetings, council member Jim Martin, president of Bridgeport-based Citynet, has requested engineering maps that show where Frontier has built fiber. Neither Frontier nor the state has turned over the maps.
West Virginia Homeland Security Director Jimmy Gianato, who oversees the $126.3 million grant, stopped attending council meetings earlier this year after the Gazette and others started asking questions about the project.
In March, the Legislative Auditor released a scathing report about how part of the $126.3 million was spent. Auditors found the state wasted at least $7.9 million -- and up to $15 million -- on oversized Internet routers that the state is hooking up to Frontier's 500-mile fiber network.
Broadband Deployment Council members have never discussed the legislative audit or ICF's report at their public meetings.
In 2010, McGraw's office told council members that they could have no say over the $126.3 million project because the council wasn't awarded the stimulus funds. The grant went directly to the governor's office -- under former Gov. Joe Manchin.
"The council lacks the authority to compel, restrict or otherwise control the office of the executive and the administration of the grant," McGraw's office concluded.
West Virginia received the single largest stimulus grant to expand broadband in the U.S.
