The US House of Representatives recently approved a binary amendment proposed by Rodney Davis (RL) to expand broadband access to underserved areas in the United States.
“The epidemic has shown us that there are big differences in high-speed broadband access, which is an important part of modern life,” said the Republic Davis on August 5.
Representative Davis introduced the amendment with US Representative Abigail Spenberger (DV) and 36 colleagues.
The council last month discussed Davis on HR 4502, Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, Agriculture, Rural Development, Energy and Water Development, Financial Services and General Government, Domestic, Environmental, Military Building, Patriot Affairs, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development Assignment Act, 2022
The amendment states that the Federal Communications Commission (FEC) has been promulgated in Part B to improve the speed limit by downloading 10 megabytes per second and 1 megabyte to 25 megabytes per second and 3 megabytes per upload.
Increased speeds will increase the number of communities eligible for the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) ReConnect Rural Broadband program, according to Rip Davis.
In April, Representative Davis called on dozens of congressional members to increase funding for the USAA Reconciliation Program and the 2018 Agricultural Bill, the Rural Broadband Loans and Grants program approved by the 2018 Agricultural Reform Act.
Home remittances for the ReConnect program reflect an increase of $ 165 million, although the registration process is still underway in Congress, according to the Congressional Office.
