Eshoo Wholeheartedly Supports White House Plan to Expand K-12 Internet Speeds


Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (D-Palo Alto), Ranking Member of the Communications and Technology Subcommittee, issued the following statement today after the White House announced a new initiative to deliver faster broadband Internet access to America's K-12 schools. Rep. Eshoo and Federal Communications Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel outlined a proposal in line with the President's in a POLITICO op-ed earlier this week.

"I wholeheartedly support the President's call to modernize the E-Rate program in order to bring faster broadband speeds to our nation's schools and libraries," Rep. Eshoo said. "To enable a 21st century digital classroom, supported by high-definition video, cloud-based services and other advanced applications, we need bandwidth -- and lots of it. We are moving rapidly toward a world where what matters is capacity, not just access. Now is the time to reshape the E-Rate program to meet that growing need."
