The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) this week approved “Project Kuiper,” a plan by Amazon to deploy a network of low-Earth orbit satellites to provide high-speed broadband service. Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement:

“The need for Internet connectivity is clear – for education, for business, and for quality of life. Connecting more rural and remote communities requires creative thinking and innovation. I applaud the FCC’s decision to approve Project Kuiper, expanding the number of companies working to utilize satellite technology to provide high-speed broadband. This is a significant contribution to closing the digital divide.”
