Don't widen Washington's digital divide - No on SB6003!

Summary:

Take action!

Qwest has a bill before the Washington State Senate allowing telecom providers to offer cable TV-style services to consumers statewide. The bill claims to offer consumer choice and expand broadband services in our state. But it's real purpose is to provide a windfall for a handful of national companies, while doing real damage to local customer service standards, support for community and educational TV, and quality service guarantees for poor and rural areas. This bill would widen the digital divide in our state, at a time when the US has already fallen far behind other countries in broadband availability (read RTM's complete analysis of SB6003).

Take action today: tell your Senators to boot this bad bill!
