On behalf of Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC, OCA – Asian Pacific American Advocates, and the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA) we submit the following comments in response to the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC” or Commission) request for comments on the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). We commend the FCC’s efforts over the past several months to develop and implement the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) program and hope that the ACP will build on the successes of EBB and learn from it’s shortcomings in order to continue the vital work of bridging the digital divide.
