Universal and affordable high-speed internet

FederalStateLocalPrivate Sector

Everyone should have affordable and reliable high-speed internet access in the home, regardless of such factors as geography, race, ethnicity, income, age, and ability level. This includes people living in underserved communities where high-speed internet is not deployed, as well as those who cannot afford service where it is available. Policymakers should consider using grants, loans, tax credits, and other incentives to ensure that as many people as possible receive the benefits of high-speed internet. These policies should incorporate consumer protections and should not shift costs or place an unfair burden on taxpayers or ratepayers.
