Fighting Internet injustice in rural N.M.

-A A +A
By Merilee Dannemann

The digital divide in America — those who do and those who do not have access to the Internet — runs especially deep in rural New Mexico. Is it digital injustice or just the painfully slow development of the necessary infrastructure?
Tom Wheeler, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, visited New Mexico recently. He confronted that question and a challenge on the confusing issue of net neutrality, the argument over whether some content providers can get favorable high-speed access to the network at the expense of other users. Though he spoke with obvious conviction, some audience members were unsatisfied with his answers.
After visiting Acoma Pueblo, Wheeler spoke and answered questions at a forum sponsored by the New Mexico Media Literacy Project and other organizations belonging to the New Mexico Digital Justice Coalition.
“Digital Justice” is fighting terminology. It implies that the lack of access is a political decision rather than the absence of resources.
