Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers on FCC’s National Broadband Plan
Today, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released its National Broadband Plan. Below is a statement on this plan by Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers:
“The Federal Communications Commission’s National Broadband Plan lays out a strong vision for how ubiquitous 100MB broadband can contribute to the social and economic well being of our country. A next generation Internet supported by accessible, affordable broadband is within our reach and can transform education, health care, energy, government as well as enable job creation and economic growth on a global scale. It is critical that our entire government work toward implementing a comprehensive National Broadband Plan to ensure U.S. competitiveness in the 21st century. We applaud the FCC and urge the Administration and Congress to work quickly to consider these recommendations.”
