Several Hispanic Associations praised the Solicitor General's decision of not to appeal Telecom Ruling. The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Cuban American National Council and the Hispanic Technology & Telecommunications Partnership were among the first ones in making public their opinion.
The following is the statement by the Hispanic Telecommunications and Technology Partnership:
"By leaving the Court's decision in place, the Solicitor General will strengthen what has been the weakest link in the application of new technology. With today's announcement, the economic disincentives that existed for deployment of broadband will begin to diminish. Since the lack of high-speed Internet access is a barrier to the advancement of the U.S. economy, and particularly affects Americans of Hispanic descent, we are very pleased."
