AT&T Statement on Bipartisan Agreement on Broadband Infrastructure

Attribute the following to John Stankey, AT&T CEO:

“We appreciate the bipartisan efforts to reach agreement on critical infrastructure spending, including a proposed $65 billion investment in the country’s broadband future.  While more work needs to be done to ensure funds are spent in a way that is efficient and effective in making broadband more accessible and affordable—including flexibility in allocating dollars to state, local and tribal governments where resources can be targeted to their highest impact—the bipartisan infrastructure framework is a positive development and we commend Members of Congress and the Administration for their resolve to close the digital divide for all Americans.”
