STATEMENT FROM FCC CHAIRMAN JULIUS GENACHOWSKI ON
COMCAST’S STRENGTHENED COMMITMENT TO BROADBAND ADOPTION“I commend Comcast for their strengthened commitment to broadband adoption. Having more Americans
who are digitally empowered will mean more students able to access the benefits of digital learning, more
Americans with the skills needed to find and land the jobs of today and tomorrow, and millions more
customers for online businesses. Broadband is key to America's long-term global competitiveness.
Unfortunately, too many Americans are falling on the wrong side of the digital divide, excluded from the
$8 trillion global Internet economy. The FCC remains committed to working with all stakeholders to
meet this pressing national challenge.”
