Statement on FCC Action to Promote Equal Access to Broadband

Today, the FCC adopted final rules to facilitate equal access to broadband.

The following statement is from Jonathan Spalter, USTelecom President & CEO:

“America’s broadband providers are working every day to connect and serve all communities. When our overwhelming focus must be on closing the digital divide and incentivizing deployment, the Commission instead is taking overly intrusive, unworkably vague, and ultimately harmful steps in the wrong direction. Unfortunately, this order is counter to what Congress intended with the Infrastructure Act to facilitate equal access.”
