CR Supports SB 1130 to Help Close the Digital Divide

Consumer Reports writes in support of SB 1130. For years, Consumer Reports (CR) has worked with the California Legislature, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and Congress to ensure that all consumers have access to affordable, quality broadband service. As millions of Americans have shifted to working, learning, and receiving medical care at home because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the necessity and value of a reliable, affordable internet connection has never been clearer. Consumers across California need better access to more affordable internet connections. Consistent with these policy goals, CR is proud to endorse SB 1130, which will help close the digital divide and connect more Californians to the internet at lower prices.
