“We applaud the National Urban League for publishing these important findings which can help guide the entire broadband ecosystem in our effort to connect more Americans to the powerful economic, social and educational benefits that broadband offers.  As Time Warner Cable has demonstrated by underwriting the Urban League research, the cable industry is working closely with the FCC and many community partners to shrink the broadband adoption gap.  We’ll continue to explore new ways to effectively convince all Americans that broadband is the key to unleashing opportunity.”
