Statement on Federal Court’s Decision on Challenge to New York Broadband Law

A coalition of broadband associations filed suit in federal court seeking an injunction against New York State Budget Bill S2506-C regulating the rate of broadband service in the state of New York. This statement is in response to today’s decision.

“The broadband industry is committed to working with state and federal policymakers on sustainable solutions that will serve the needs of all low-income Americans. While well-intended, the state’s law ignored the $50 monthly broadband discount Congress enacted, as well as the many commitments, programs and offerings that broadband providers have made for low-income consumers.”
