Eshoo Decries FCC Decision to Harm Low-Income Broadband Users

March 30th, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement after FCC Chairman Ajit Pai announced he would reverse the Lifeline Broadband Provider designation process.

“What a week in Washington. On 3/29 the FCC Chairman targeted the FCC’s Lifeline program which provides access to phone and broadband services to low-income Americans. He plans to roll back the designation process, making it harder for broadband providers to offer nationwide broadband service to those who can’t afford it. His message was also clear: lower-income children and families will not have access to these critical services, including 9-1-1.

“Chairman Pai has said his primary goal at the FCC is to help close the digital divide in our country, but his actions don’t match his words. Instead, he’s unraveling the safety net for low- income citizens, and this decision will expand, not close, the digital divide.”
