WASHINGTON – U.S. Sens. Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine sent a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to express support for its targeted experiments to expand affordable, quality broadband to rural America, and urged the FCC to consider Virginia as the process moves forward.

“Access to broadband is no longer a luxury and the current divide between urban and rural area access to modern communication is unacceptable,” the Senators said. “We need to continue to enhance efforts to make sure every Virginian has affordable access to broadband.”
