What President Obama's Proposal for a Faster, Cheaper Internet Means for You

His plan to help more Americans get connected.

— -- President Obama wants everyone in the United States to have access to high speed, affordable Internet -- even in rural areas of the country.

Obama is expected to highlight the achievements of several rural areas that have taken on community broadband projects that have leveraged public- and private-sector investments to bring high-speed connectivity to places that otherwise may not be served.

For the hundreds of millions of Americans who have high-speed Internet but may be limited in choice, the announcement also has implications.

The White House said today the Obama Administration will file a letter with the FCC calling for competition-stifling laws in 19 states to be overturned.
