Benton Institute for Broadband & Society Applauds Biden Administration's Commitment to Ending Digital Discrimination
Today, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration urged the Federal Communications Commission to adopt strong rules against digital discrimination. The following statement may be attributed to Benton Institute for Broadband & Society Senior Counselor Andrew Jay Schwartzman:
"Today’s NTIA filing underscores how many government-wide initiatives will be affected by the FCC’s implementation of the digital discrimination mandates in the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The Benton Institute for Broadband & Society shares NTIA’s belief that robust rules that can address the disparate impact of broadband deployment and service offerings will serve the needs of all Americans. Broad, non-discriminatory access to the internet brings more customers to businesses, reduces the cost of government services for all taxpayers, and promotes stronger social bonds by enabling friends and family to remain in touch with loved ones."
The Benton Institute for Broadband & Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that all people in the U.S. have access to competitive, High-Performance Broadband regardless of where they live or who they are. We believe communication policy - rooted in the values of access, equity, and diversity - has the power to deliver new opportunities and strengthen communities.
