Statement on F.C.C. Move to Expand Broadband Accessibility

“Chairman Wheeler is absolutely right that broadband is key to Lifeline’s future. Ubiquitous internet access has become essential to everyday life, for everything from communication and job searching to entertainment and medical care. Here in New York, we can leverage community partnerships to ensure that New Yorkers can not only afford broadband, but are trained on how to take advantage of the many opportunities provided by internet access. I will be working closely with colleagues in government and the private sector over the coming months to make sure this program achieves its goal of providing a minimum baseline of connectivity for all Americans. “
