Statement of NCTA Regarding Modernizing the E-rate Program for Schools and Libraries
"As the nation’s premier broadband provider, the cable industry has built state-of-the-art networks that can provide powerful connections to homes, businesses and schools. We’ve partnered with the FCC and other organizations to promote broadband adoption for low income families through Connect2Compete. And we welcome the opportunity to work with the Commission on reforms to the E-rate program that will fairly and responsibly build a strong program to further enhance the role of technology in education."
