High speed broadband Internet connects people, spurs economic development, improves education, health care, and environmental sustainability. Without it, many rural and underserved communities and their residents remain at a disadvantage, unable to access the benefits or opportunities available to already “connected” communities.
We support efforts to expand broadband access, and to deliver to every American the technology and the opportunities that accompany it.
Whereas accelerating broadband deployment spurs new job creation, new product innovation and broad economic growth;
Whereas broadband access increases educational opportunities and achievement and offers a platform for higher quality and lower cost health care;
Whereas broadband usage can help reduce energy intensity and environmental impacts from alternative activities;
We hereby call upon elected leaders and regulators to actively support efforts that significantly extend the reach of broadband technology to every corner of the United States.
