Attribute the following to Joan Marsh, AT&T Executive Vice President of Federal Regulatory Relations:

“Keeping our communities connected and working to close the digital divide is a top priority. We support the FCC’s efforts to quickly develop a program that will enable more Americans to afford broadband connectivity during this unprecedented time.  Encouraging participation in the Emergency Broadband Benefit program will be key to its success, and we commend the Commission for creating rules that will enable low-income households, such as our Access by AT&T customers, to automatically qualify for the benefit. The steps taken in this Order will help close the broadband gap, and we look forward to working with Congress and others to identify permanent and sustainable funding solutions for Universal Service programs.”
