Dig Once Leg 10-23

CenturyLink Applauds Introduction of “Dig Once” Legislation

By John F. Jones, Senior Vice President of Public Policy and Government Relations

"CenturyLink applauds U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman Greg Walden and Ranking Member Anna Eshoo for introducing the Broadband Conduit Deployment Act of 2015, also known as 'dig once' legislation," said CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) Senior Vice President for Public Policy and Government Relations John Jones.

"This bill would require that broadband conduit be installed during any road construction that receives federal funding, thus making it easier and more cost-effective to connect more Americans to the high-speed information superhighway. We welcome the committee’s attention to this important issue and support efforts to remove barriers to broadband deployment."
