WASHINGTON, Sept 11 (Reuters) - A group of 11 U.S. senators
on Friday urged the chief executives of the seven largest U.S.
internet providers to temporarily suspend data caps and fees for
millions of U.S. school children studying remotely because of
the coronavirus pandemic.
The senators led by Democrat Mark Warner called on AT&T Inc
, Comcast, Verizon Communications Inc,
T-Mobile and three other providers to "take concrete
measures to suspend limits and fees associated with increased
broadband use, which is needed to participate in online courses
or remote work."
They also asked providers to expand coverage areas to
places where students struggle to get online access.
