Vice President Kamala Harris comes to INLIVIAN
Touts new affordable high-speed internet
Vice President of the United States Kamala Harris traveled to INLIVIAN’s Carole A. Hoefener Center to discuss the Biden-Harris Administration’s investments in affordable, high-speed internet.
“High-speed internet is not a luxury, it is a necessity,” Harris said. “Students use the internet for so many reasons in pursuit of their education. Workers use the internet to find jobs and training. It is essential to our daily lives and yet more than 30 million people in the U.S. do not have access, and millions more cannot afford high-speed internet plans.”
Harris spoke about the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), a federal benefit program administered by the FCC that helps ensure that households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, health care and more.
