The following statement is from NCTA President and CEO Michael Powell:

“We applaud Rep. Matsui for re-introducing the “Broadband Affordability Act” which recognizes the value of reforming our existing universal service system by focusing greater attention on competitively neutral strategies to promote broadband adoption.  We support Rep. Matsui’s efforts and look forward to working with her and other members on new ideas that will improve digital literacy and help low-income households realize the benefits of broadband.”
