ACA Commends FCC On Vote Updating CAF II Rules

PITTSBURGH, December 11, 2014 - American Cable Association President and CEO Matthew M. Polka issued the following statement regarding the Federal Communications Commission's vote today to update Connect America Fund II rules for receiving support to offer broadband in rural markets:

"ACA applauds the FCC's action today to move the Connect America Phase II program forward.  This program is a major undertaking, which seeks to bring broadband to millions of unserved locations as rapidly and efficiently as possible.  That is not an easy task, and the FCC has worked long and hard to come to this point.  ACA may differ with the FCC on select aspects of the program but not the overall direction, and we intend to continue to work with the FCC to ensure unserved consumers get high-speed broadband in an efficient and fiscally responsible manner."

About the American Cable Association: Based in Pittsburgh, the American Cable Association is a trade organization representing about 850 smaller and medium-sized, independent cable companies who provide broadband services for nearly 7 million cable subscribers primarily located in rural and smaller suburban markets across America.  Through active participation in the regulatory and legislative process in Washington, D.C., ACA's members work together to advance the interests of their customers and ensure the future competitiveness and viability of their business.  For more information, visit http://www.americancable.org/
