Statement of NCTA – The Internet and Television Association Regarding Introduction of the Broadband Adoption and Opportunity Act

“We commend Rep. O’Halleran and co-sponsor Rep. Johnson and for introducing the Broadband Adoption and Opportunity Act. This legislation creates a pilot program to support the availability of refurbished internet-capable devices available to low-income consumers through public-private partnerships that address an often overlooked barrier to broadband adoption. The bill will also encourage greater attention on the variety of factors impeding broadband adoption through the development of best practices bringing needed attention to successful strategies that help consumers make lasting connections to the Internet. As an industry committed to helping Americans connect and use broadband networks, we look forward to working with Congressman O’Halleran and other members of Congress on this legislation and these important issues.”
