PSC Urges Carriers to Pledge to Keep Nebraskans Connected
Lincoln, March 19, 2020 – The Nebraska Public Service Commission
(PSC) is calling on communications carriers that work to do business
in Nebraska to take our PSC pledge to Keep Nebraskans Connected.
“Much like the FCC’s Keep Americans Connected pledge, this is a
way for Nebraska carriers to commit to keeping our citizens and
businesses connected during these rapidly changing times,”said
Commission Chair Mary Ridder.
The PSC Keep Nebraskans Connected pledge ask carriers to commit
to offer low-income Nebraskans:
- No data caps
- Waive installation and equipment fees
- Free or near-free services, so that Nebraskans can stay in
school and contribute to work but from a safer social distance.
The PSC is asking carriers to commit to the pledge for at least the
next two months or until the Governor ends our state’s emergency
Commissioner Ridder said, “We are asking our carriers to step up
and do their best, so Nebraska can be her best.” ###
