To Congress:

The cost of high-speed internet in the United States is way too high. That’s been the case for years and we’ve witnessed in stark relief since March 2020 the impact that steep prices have on people’s ability to keep in touch with loved ones and access remote learning, health care, unemployment benefits and so much more.

As we continue to live with the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s critical that you make a major investment to ensure that low-income, Black and Brown families not only have the wire running to their doors but that they can afford to connect to it. The lack of affordable home high-speed internet options over the last year — especially for school-aged children — will have harmful impacts for decades to come.

Please pass the Accessible, Affordable Internet for All Act and include other measures in the infrastructure package to make high-speed internet affordable.

    Tell Congress: High-Speed Internet is Too Expensive

    Urge Congress to Make High-Speed Internet Affordable

    High-speed internet access is too expensive in the United States, but right now Congress has the opportunity to ensure that people can afford to get connected.

    The lack of affordable home high-speed internet options over the last year — especially for school-aged children — will have harmful impacts for decades to come. And as we continue to live with the realities of the COVID-19 global-health emergency, and address the inequities that have worsened during the pandemic, it’s critical that Congress pass legislation that would help ensure that low-income, Black and Brown families not only have the wire running to their doors but that they can afford to connect to it.

    Tell Congress: Pass the Accessible, Affordable Internet for All Act and include other measures in the infrastructure package to make high-speed internet affordable.
