Black Advocacy Group Encouraged By FCC Action

WASHINGTON- The National Caucus and Center on Black Aged (NCBA), an advocacy group focused on the particular needs of African American elderly, has released the following statement on the Federal Communications Commission’s announcement to further study the issues related to the Open Internet proceeding:

“The National Caucus and Center on Black Aged (NCBA) has long supported the National Broadband Plan and its goal of making the Internet accessible to all communities across our country. We at NCBA are seeing the benefits brought to our communities by broadband Internet and support decisions that will help bring us closer to the goal of the National Broadband Plan. Therefore, we are encouraged that the FCC is seeking additional comments on aspects of the Open Internet proceeding; though, it is imperative that the information gathering process not overlook the need for continued job development, increased investment, and innovation in such areas that benefit the senior communities like telemedicine.  The FCC must ensure that its information gathering and decision making process considers these vital byproducts of a vibrant broadband world.”
