The COVID-19 pandemic and the fight for racial and social justice has the public asking why tens of millions of Americans, and particularly people of color, lack access to broadband Internet and what can be done to close this digital divide. The Benton Institute for Broadband and Society’s new report, Broadband for America Now, explores how we got here; and more importantly, what policies and practices are necessary to get every American connected. The institute is proud to host Jonathan Sallet, former FCC General Counsel and author of the report, and former FCC Commissioner and Benton Institute Board Member Mignon Clyburn. Gigi Sohn, Distinguished Fellow at Georgetown Law’s Institute for Technology Law & Policy and a Benton Fellow and Public Advocate will lead a special Tech on the Rocks Live Podcast to discuss the report’s recommendations and their prospects in a new Administration and Congress.
