Senators ask FCC Chairman to Support Rural and Working-class Area Students
Posted March 17, 2017
Two U.S. Senators write a letter to the Federal Communications Commission Chairman urging him to protect the e-Rate program. The federal program, funded through telephone charges, supports internet access to schools and libraries.
Democratic Sen. Ed Markey and Republican Sen. Dan Sullivan sent this letter on March 17 to Chairman Ajit Pai.
In the letter, they write “for many communities, these schools and libraries are the only source for free public internet access.”
We’re also working to help school districts build advanced Internet, cloud, and network services that will enable innovative and transformational education delivery models for the future of teaching and learning.
