Broadband Connectivity is Social Necessity

Reps. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.), and Ryan Costello (R-Pa.) have introduced legislation that calls on the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis to study the economic impact of broadband deployment and adoption. “Broadband connectivity is no longer a privilege, it is a fundamental necessity in society, and Congress needs to ensure that all communities, from Appalachia to Cupertino, have reliable access to the internet, regardless of geography or income,” Khanna said, in a statement.
