Assembly Panel Oks Benson, Andrzejczak & Land Bill to Establish Schedule for Require Internet, Cable Service to Reach More Residents

An Assembly panel on Monday approved legislation that would expand the areas required to have access to cable and internet service. The bill (A-1451) is sponsored by Assembly Democrats Daniel Benson, Bob Andrzejczak and Bruce Land. 

"Reliable access to internet and cable service for many residents is not as obtainable as one may think," said Benson (D- Mercer, Middlesex). "There are still many areas in the state, mostly rural and densely populated communities that rely on wireless, or an antiquated dial-up service for the internet. This legislation develops a time table for cable companies to ensure that these areas are provided access to reliable, high-speed internet sooner rather than later."
