Minorities Like FCC Broadband Plan
Yesterday, The Federal Communications Commission released “Connecting
America: The National Broadband Plan.” The Minority Media and
Telecommunications Council (MMTC), which participated extensively
in a dozen proceedings and hearings leading up to the plan, commends
the FCC on this extraordinary accomplishment.
David Honig, MMTC President and Executive Director, stated that the
FCC “hit all of the top priorities: closing the racial and economic digital
divide, extending broadband service to the unserved and underserved,
achieving universal adoption and literate use, and securing the full
participation of minority business enterprises (MBEs) in the new digital
economy. For addressing these issues, the FCC deserves our warm
congratulations on a job well done.
