WASHINGTON – The Information Technology Industry Council (ITI), the global voice for the tech sector, issued the following statement from Vince Jesaitis, vice president for government affairs, after the introduction of the Broadband Conduit Deployment Act of 2015:

“Having long promoted efforts to incentivize and ease deployment of broadband networks and infrastructure, ITI strongly supports the Broadband Conduit Deployment Act of 2015 introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Greg Walden (R-OR). This bipartisan bill addresses a widely recognized challenge of accessing infrastructure to deploy fiber and was most recently identified in the comments to, and recommendations of, the Broadband Opportunity Council. We offer our full support for Reps. Eshoo and Walden in this effort, and look forward to working with them to move this bill forward.”
