Sign the Petition: expand broadband access

Imagine no high-speed internet for miles around – no reliable connection to the 21st Century online tools that power our modern economy.

For many rural Americans -- in Oregon and across the country -- this is reality, and we need to do something about it. It’s time for Congress to expand high-speed broadband access for rural communities!

Broadband internet access is no longer a luxury. It’s an absolute necessity. Today's ranchers and farmers need to be able to connect to online tools at all times, literally in the field, just like many urban workers. Rural businesses will do better with reliable access to online tools and markets for their products. So will students on reservations and in small, isolated towns who want to learn and connect with other young people. And broadband helps to share products and ideas from rural Oregon with the rest of the world.

We're fighting to bridge the digital divide that separates our urban and rural communities. It's time for Congress to act. Please add your support: Demand high-speed broadband access for all!
