Elizabeth Warren announces broadband plan

Glad to see broadband make the national policy discussion. CNBC reports on Elizabeth Warren’s broadband plan…

  • The Democratic presidential hopeful unveils a plan to guarantee universal high-speed internet access and investments in rural communities.
  • Warren says she would create a federal Office of Broadband Access to manage an $85 billion grant program.
  • Her administration would “preempt” laws on the books in 26 states that discourage or prevent municipalities from building their own broadband infrastructure.
