With this plan in place, we will be able to tackle our other goals such as creating jobs through technology investment. As the FCC Commissioners consider this proposal, I am encouraged about the future of America’s Internet infrastructure. I hope the Commission will reject political posturing and move forward with this effective compromise.
ADE feels very strongly about this issue and I remain encouraged by the progress that has been made because minority and underserved communities across America have so much to gain from this middle ground approach. After struggling throughout the economic downturn, reasonable policies like this one will enable communities of color and minority businesses to seek new opportunities, create jobs and have greater access to the Internet – factors that will lead to a more prosperous and equitable America. Our innovative spirit and the technological advancements we’ve made are representative of the very fabric of the American dream – opportunity and success abound – and in the midst of our nation’s economic recovery I believe increased investment in broadband technology will create jobs and lay a strong foundation for future generations.
