Our state could provide funding for municipalities that want to start expanding their Internet capabilities, increasing speeds, access and decreasing costs. This is a large upfront cost, with exceptional long-term benefits. This access would bring up the educational floor, provide better user experiences to tech entrepreneurs, and would bring Connecticut to the forefront of the information technology era.
Advocating for statewide net neutrality regulation
With the likely elimination of net neutrality regulations by the Trump administration, I will be advocating for state-based regulation. Multi-national corporations should not have the power to eliminate or limit what we view on the internet. Abolishing net neutrality regulations concentrates even more power with these large corporations, hurting consumers and reducing competition, making it harder for smaller companies to get off the ground and see success. I’ll be fighting for a free and open internet.
