Today marks the start of the second year of our groundbreaking Internet Essentials program. I'm also thrilled to announce we have reached a significant milestone: nearly 100,000 families or almost 400,000 low-income Americans are now connected to the Internet at home (most of them for the first time) because of this program. We didn't do this alone. This milestone is a testament to all the hard work and dedication of our employees and our community partners, the support we have received from school districts and elected officials, as well as from ordinary people who heard about the program and helped a family get online.

Please click here to watch a new video about the importance of broadband and the progress of our efforts. In it, you'll hear from FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, civil rights leader and Atlanta Congressman John Lewis, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, Dean Connie Spinner with UDC Community College as well as others including a teacher and a family.
