NATOA Sends Letter Opposing GA Senate Bill 313 - Broadband Investment Equity Act

January 31, 2012 10:15 AM
On January 31st, NATOA sent a letter to all members of the Georgia Senate Regulated Industries and Utilities Committee opposing Senate  Bill 313, the Broadband Investment Equity Act.  The legislation, if enacted, would severely hamper the efforts of local governments to provide community broadband networks.  Legislative initiatives such as S. 313 do nothing to encourage increased private investment in advanced communications services.  Rather, such legislation serves to tie the hands of local governments to bring true competition, better services, and lower prices to their residents, especially those in un- and underserved communities.  Click HERE to read NATOA’s letter.
