Free Press Applauds FCC Goal of 100 Million Households with Super-Fast Broadband
WASHINGTON - FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski spoke today about some of the likely
recommendations in the National Broadband Plan. Among them is a goal of
100 million households at speeds of 100 Megabits per second.
Ben Scott, policy director of Free Press, made the following statement:
"We support the FCC's ambitious goal of connecting 100 million
households to super-fast Internet service -- now let's get to work on
the policy changes that are necessary to make it a reality. We need our
leaders to be focused on implementing the right pro-competitive,
pro-openness policies for all Americans."
