Equal Internet Access Hearing Announced
By Joe Gullo
WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) announced a hearing on preserving equal Internet access.
Given Vermont's challenges when it comes to broadband, Leahy wants to make sure web access is available to any home. He also wants to ensure small businesses don't get hit with unfair tolls or restrictions.
The hearing is July 1 at 10 a.m. at UVM'S Davis Center.
