NCTA Comment Regarding Introduction of The LIFT America Act

“We welcome introduction of The LIFT America Act and share Chairman Pallone’s goal of improving our national infrastructure through programs specifically targeted at extending high-speed broadband networks to those communities that are not yet connected. In particular, we appreciate the legislation’s reliance on reverse auctions as an efficient and technologically neutral means of distributing support and its attention to significant disparities in rates for pole attachments that thwart deployment and fair competition. We look forward to consideration of these issues and to partnering with the Energy and Commerce Committee and other policymakers on solutions that will close the digital divide in America.”
