TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As founder and chairwoman of Communications Consumers United, (CCU), an organization that is committed to educating consumers and advocating to policymakers about the significant impact that communications policies will have on our quality of life, I am proud of the FCC for listening to the resounding voices of consumers who have argued for policies that support jobs, investments, and innovation.  

Recognizing that access to affordable communication services is critical in our ever-increasing technologically dependent world, the focused and defined approach by the FCC to ensure an open internet will mean that attention can be restored to the real challenges that we all face on a daily basis, one of which is reaching 100% broadband adoption with appropriate and affordable access.

Always fighting for services for the underprivileged in an effort to empower families, youth, minorities, and low income residents, we look forward to working with the FCC, in a joint effort, and pledge to ensure that communities know about this effort and support this process.

Please join me in commending the FCC for their tireless efforts to "get it right"  with this essential task of ensuring an open and affordable internet.
