ALA sends letter to heads of FCC, NTIA and RUS supporting coordinated anchor networks

It’s been a week since the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) unveiled the National Broadband Plan (see ALA’s initial response on Wednesday, March 17).  

As we continue to analyze the recommendations and new ideas in the plan, the ALA sent a letter to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, Assistant Secretary Larry Strickling at the National Telecommunications and Information Administration in the Department of Commerce, and Administrator Jonathan Adelstein at the Rural Utilities Service in the Department of Agriculture. 

The ALA supports the concept of a coordinated community anchor institution network as identified in the plan, and we look forward to working with our colleagues in these agencies and others as this and additional options for library and anchor institution broadband connectivity develop.
