  • In the heart of Silicon Valley, parents drive their children to the library nightly so they can get on a computer with Internet access to do their homework. 
  • In Los Angeles, low-income job hunters take long bus rides to a job-training center to submit their resumes online, otherwise employers won’t accept them. 
  • In Fresno, migrant families spend all of their income on rent and food, leaving nothing to pay for a computer and Internet service at home.  

Why is this still happening in a country that sits at the epicenter of the technology revolution? 

The answer:  The country needs affordable high-speed Internet at home for all low-income households. 

Today, one in four households across America remains on the wrong side of the Digital Divide and are being left behind at an accelerating pace. 

We know first-hand from being in the trenches with the most disadvantaged populations and impoverished neighborhoods that they are up against a "wall of poverty" that demands action from all of us, including FCC Commissioners and our elected representatives.

Please help us knock down the “wall of poverty” by urging the FCC to require Internet service providers that want to merger to deliver affordable Internet to all low-income households. 

Today, Comcast has enrolled just 14% of eligible USA families with schoolchildren in its affordable Internet Essentials program. Tell the FCC 14% isn’t good enough and all low-income households should be eligible.

The Digital Drummer Review

PR - Business Seminar Beyond the fact that they had a real time demonstration of what could be done with Broadband technology…beyond the dynamic speakers..beyond the contacts (not to mention $100 they gave away)…It was truly an empowering and uplifting time for all. I'm posting this review up today, because even if you're not in California, the programs and initiatives they were talking about, more in likely exist in your community or state. With the new Obama administration putting Billions into upgrading and modernizing IT infrastructure....we've got to spread the knowledge.
