"Cable operators have a long track record of working with schools to bring broadband to unconnected students and families, including establishing hundreds of partnerships in communities across America during the pandemic that have enabled students to learn remotely from the safety of their homes. The FCC's new Emergency Connectivity Fund is an important new program that has the potential to turbocharge these ongoing efforts. We appreciate the hard work of all the FCC commissioners in developing this program in a timely and bipartisan fashion, and our industry will continue to work side-by-side with policymakers on permanent solutions for connecting all Americans to broadband."
