Call NYS Assembly Today: Support Broadband for All
Updated On: Jul 15, 2020
As COVID-19 has moved much of our lives online, the importance of access to universal, high-speed, affordable broadband has never been clearer.
New York’s broadband maps simply do not have the detailed information needed to determine exactly where and why hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers cannot obtain high-speed, affordable broadband. In order to better understand the problem, our Broadband Data Collection bill would require the Public Service Commission to collect more accurate data to assess who has and does not have access to affordable broadband. Accurate broadband mapping is a needed first step in closing the digital divide - and potentially creating more work for CWA members to hook up unserved or underserved New Yorkers.
Take two minutes to email your NYS Assemblymember to urge them to pass our Broadband Data Collection bill A.6679/S.5696.
