    This bill requires the FCC to submit a report on making broadband internet service available to vets—particularly rural and low-income. High-speed internet is invaluable in the job market, allows vets to use their talents in remote work, and provides opportunity for distance learning so our veterans can continue their education through online programs. This is definitely something the Congress should move on and I certainly support it!

    Specifically, for whom, how to apply, costs? The information found here is sketchy at best. The idea has merit, but to say yes or no, requires more info.

    This would be something good if it was life and death but this is a luxury and tax payers shouldn't have to foot the bill. BTW I'm a disabled veteran.
