Statement of NCTA – The Internet & Television Association Regarding FCC Adoption of the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program

“We commend the FCC's adoption of a thoughtful and balanced framework for the Emergency Broadband Benefit program, an important initiative that will help ensure millions of Americans can use broadband to work and learn from home during the pandemic. We will continue working with the FCC and other stakeholders to keep existing broadband customers connected and reach those that have yet to subscribe. Today's action also represents a real accomplishment given the voluminous record and significant time constraints involved. Acting Chair Rosenworcel, her fellow Commissioners, and FCC staff deserve great credit for the open and efficient process that led to this result.”
