FCC Petition Demanding Internet Access Passes 30,000 Signatures
Education activists from around the country came together in the spring to demand that the FCC immediately update the Keep Americans Connected pledge to urge internet providers to waive their restrictions on low-income households and provide the free internet they promised during the pandemic.
That petition has exceeded 30,000 signatures, and it’s still growing.
The petition has gotten a boost from former Education Secretary Arne Duncan and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. Duncan even wrote in the Washington Post demanding that the FCC respond.
As of now, the FCC has dodged its responsibility to help families secure internet access, whether it’s low-income students in our urban centers, or the millions of families in rural America who still have no broadband infrastructure.
The fight continues! Sign the petition now.
