The FCC has been talking up its plans for a national broadband infrastructure for a long time. The plan has the ultimate goal of bringing broadband into areas that are historically underserved like rural areas and for making broadband more affordable for the poor.

The FCC has also sought to enforce rules on ISPs that govern what they can and can't do in instances with traffic shaping and blocking. The FCC lost a case against Comcast over managing traffic on the ISPs network and the FCC is set to make moves that would give it legal authority of ISPs.

The CEO and Chairman for the Alliance of Digital Equity Julius Hollis has issued a statement speaking out against the FCCs plan for a "third way" to make the national broadband infrastructure more equal for users. Hollis claims that the plan would further marginalize poor minority communities and restrict consumer choice and access to cheap broadband and urges the FCC to find another way. Exactly how the FCC plan will marginalize the minority communities isn't specified in the statement.
