Deb Haaland on Technology

 

 


Hailed $165 million for rural broadband in New Mexico

Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich along with Representatives Ben Ray Lujan, Deb Haaland and Xochitl Torres Small, hailed the announcement that 18 cable companies, satellite businesses, electrical cooperatives, and wireless providers in New Mexico have won nearly $165 million from the Federal Communications Commission's Rural Digital Opportunity Fund Phase I auction. The utilities received the funding for a 10-year period to provide broadband access in 64,170 locations in New Mexico.

Would park near wi-fi hot spot to do homework with daughter

Press release: "It's heartbreaking to see children huddling around a wi-fi hotspot to get their homework done--I know what that's like. My daughter and I would park at Barnes and Noble and do our homework in the car together because we couldn't afford the internet. It shouldn't be this way. After writing and encouraging the FCC to expand access, I'm glad they approved this funding for underserved areas. I will continue to fight for broadband internet for all New Mexicans," said Haaland.

Supports net neutrality and public internet infrastructure

I support the right to privacy and net neutrality, and I will work to continue the expansion of broadband access across New Mexico. In a world where internet access is essential to success in school, in the job market, and at work--public internet infrastructure is a big, smart idea that deserves further discussion.
