Internet access: The health of our nation depends on it!

The coronavirus pandemic has forced most Americans to work from home, and children and college students to learn from home — which means an internet connection at home is more important than ever. Yet nearly one out of four households nationwide don’t have home internet!

The FCC and Congress can help out right now by expanding an existing program that gives deep discounts on broadband internet service to low-income consumers. Sign our petition to help make this happen now!

Dear FCC Chairman Pai and Congressional leaders:

We urge you to immediately expand broadband internet access in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Millions of people in the United States must stay home in order to limit the spread of COVID-19, and without internet access, communities at risk who were already struggling economically will be hit the hardest by this national emergency. It is up to you to ensure that everyone can afford critical communication services during this devastating crisis.
