Connected Nation’s CEO Brian Mefford offered the following statement on the FCC’s Connect America Fund:
Bowling Green, Ky. (October 27, 2011) – Connected Nation congratulates and commends the Federal Communications Commission today for creating the Connect America Fund. Too many parts of our country simply do not have access to broadband networks, and closing that gap is particularly important for the economic development and vitality of our nation’s rural areas. Funding for infrastructure is often a crucial missing piece in our community engagement program. We look forward to working with the Commission, our state partners, industry, and anchor institutions like schools and libraries in helping the communities Connected Nation serves overcome this substantial gap.
