Charter Statement on the Reintroduction of the 'Expanding Opportunities for Broadband Deployment Act'

May 20, 2021

"Charter applauds Congressman G. K. Butterfield for re-introducing the 'Expanding Opportunities for Broadband Deployment Act' again this Congress" the company said in a statement. "Over the last year we have seen the important role connectivity plays in the everyday lives of Americans in rural and urban communities alike, and this legislation would have a near-immediate impact on closing the digital divide. At a time when policymakers are searching for solutions to expand high-speed broadband to the millions who still lack access, Congressman Butterfield’s legislation takes concrete steps in ensuring critical government funding programs are aligned with today's connectivity needs and getting broadband to those who need it most."
