Today, Chairman Wheeler released a blog about his visit to Acoma, New Mexico. Nestled on Tribal land, this rural community illustrates a common problem found in many rural communities – the need for more internet bandwidth.
In his blog, Chairman Wheeler states:
“We owe it to all schools and libraries that participate in the E-Rate program to make it equitable for all. Too often the current rules mean that some schools are able to garner a disproportionate amount of funding at the expense of others.”
On July 11th the FCC will hold its July Open Meeting and discuss in more detail the FCC’s plan to modernize the E-rate program.
