The GOP membership of the House Committee on Energy & Commerce says the pandemic has amplified the challenges faced by families that still don’t have reliable access to the internet.
They point out that this has prevented millions of people from accessing vital health care, remote work, and other economic resources.
Congressman Fred Upton says many people across Michigan’s 6th District still lack access to quality broadband, and calls it a real problem. He says he and his House Commerce colleagues have made high-speed broadband a top priority for families and businesses in underserved areas.
Many folks across #MI06 still lack access to quality broadband – a real problem that has been magnified during the COVID crisis. That’s why my @HouseCommerce colleagues & I have made high-speed broadband expansion a top priority for families & biz in unserved & underserved areas. https://t.co/ACZEDalkhF
