Quotable

“In today’s tech-driven world, people without high-speed internet connections are left essentially voiceless. They don’t have the digital tools or literacy needed to hear the diversity of voices expressing opinions or to express themselves in today’s modern world.

You not only lack a voice, but you also lack access to education, employment and social services that most people take for granted.”
– Comcast’s David L Cohen in a blog post for The Media Institute
