Affordable Internet Is a Civil Rights Issue

By Bob Cabeza, Vice President, YMCA of Greater Long Beach

When we have situations where young people who are low-income don’t have access to affordable broadband, we are creating a two- class system.

We’re not going to have a divide of just rich or poor any longer, we are going to have a divide of those who have access to knowledge and those who don’t.  This is a civil rights issue.

FCC, if you are going to approve the Comcast-Time Warner merger:

  • Please make sure the company will:
  • Expand Affordable Access
  • Increase the Number Low-cost Subscribers
  • Fund Trusted Messengers
  • And Be Accountable!
