The National Hispanic Media Coalition (“NHMC”) respectfully submits this reply to comments on the Federal Communications Commission’s (“FCC” or “Commission”) draft rules designed to promote and preserve an open Internet. NHMC remains steadfast in its belief that the proposed rules are necessary to ensure that all people – especially people of color, who have been traditionally under and misrepresented on mainstream media – enjoy opportunities to share their stories fairly and accurately and pursue online business and educational opportunities. NHMC rejects the contention that open Internet rules will somehow affect the availability and affordability of broadband for the poor and communities of color, and has therefore signed onto the comments of the Media Justice Commenters to rebut that claim in detail.
