Former CA Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin is joining with California leaders, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Los Angeles County officials, to ask the FCC to closely review Comcast’s performance in implementing Internet Essentials. If regulators are inclined to approve the merger, they should require:
- Internet Essentials include all low-income households.
- Comcast be held accountable to meet specific subscription goals.
- Comcast capitalize an independently managed fund to support nonprofit broadband adoption programs and coordinate with states.
