Digital transformation is not only reshaping industries, but also how and where we interact.

We also must address access barriers, which is why the Federal Communications Commission has formed a cross-agency task force to create rules and policies to combat digital discrimination and to promote equal access to broadband across the country, regardless of zip code, income level, ethnicity, race, religion, or national origin.
