The American Broadband Association is a 501(c)4 non-profit organization dedicated to helping support and defend the public's rights to fast and open internet. Internet access is a fundamental right. You should have access to data without the limitations of predatory corporate internet providers.
Ads from internet service providers (ISP) today are a collection of misleading half-truths and at times, blatant falsehoods, that misrepesent what you will receive in service. We shed light on the abuses of this rampant and predatory industry. Recent events have shed light on the abominable industry practices that are anything but isolated incidents.
These days the term 'broadband' has come to mean almost any speed, no matter how slow. Our tenth generation (10G) internet standard sets a bar that allows every citizen to fully realize their first amendment rights in the modern age. Symmetrical speeds of at least 100/MBs for both uploading and downloading content without restrictions such as throttling, censorship and usage caps.
There are a lot of important issues in the world today but we believe strongly in the adage Do one thing and do it well. Our resources will always be dedicated only to a single goal, fast and open internet for all americans. Everyone agrees this is the right thing but powerful forces want to keep their monopolies and monopoly profits to every citizen's detriment.
The communications industry has been largely unopposed in promoting it's self serving interest from the federal level down to the municipal. The ABA is an eloquent and effective counterweight to make sure the interest of citizens are represented and that there are electoral consequences to ignoring american voices.
