Over the last few decades, Americans’ primary means of communicating has shifted from voice-only to broadband-enabled networks. As the Internet ecosystem becomes ever-more present in our daily lives, our regulatory policies should reflect this transition. The Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC’s) universal-service programs, aimed at ensuring access to essential communications networks for all, have been undergoing reforms. But the commission has yet to make any changes to Lifeline, a $1.8 billion-a-year program that helps provide baseline Internet services to low-income individuals.

Please join AEI’s Center for Internet, Communications, and Technology Policy for an address by FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn on the issue of reforming the Lifeline program. A panel of experts will then provide insight into how stakeholders view the current program and proposed policy changes.
