Leahy Welcomes Proposals To Promote Broadband Access For Americans

“I welcome the President’s focus on deploying high-speed broadband and improving competition in communities across America, particularly in rural areas.  Broadband is long past the point of being a luxury – it is a necessity, and the gap between urban and rural America is not closing nearly fast enough.  The lack of adequate choices for consumers is also one of the main reasons why the FCC must act swiftly to protect an open Internet.  I stand ready to work with the President and other Members of Congress to enact policies that will ensure that all Americans, whether they live in rural or urban areas, have access to fast and affordable broadband.”
