Bridging the Digital Divide
In 2021, Verizon released a white paper: “Accelerating America: Affordability - Adoption - Access.” The paper outlines a proposal that Congress fund a new broadband benefit program to provide monthly subsidies of $20-50 to low-income consumers to use to purchase broadband services. This plan would help ensure that all Americans are connected to the internet by addressing three critical objectives for federal and state broadband policy: affordability, adoption, and access.
