FBA Official Statement on the Announcement of the Community Broadband Act

“The Fiber Broadband Association believes that it is a national imperative to ensure all Americans have access to high-speed, reliable broadband connectivity. Unfortunately, not all communities have access to experienced broadband providers and these communities must step up to ensure that no one is left behind on the wrong side of the digital divide. These critical community providers include a wide range of municipal providers, Tribes, utility co-ops, public-private partnerships, and nonprofits across the U.S. We applaud Congresswoman Eshoo for introducing the Community Broadband Act to ensure everyone has an opportunity to provide fiber broadband service and receive it.”

-Gary Bolton, President and CEO, Fiber Broadband Association
