We are aware that many Georgians living in EMC service areas have begun to receive robocalls, suggesting SB 2 is bad for co-op members, will cost them money and lead to cross subsidization. This is a FALSE, misleading message, funded by a group of cable and small telecom companies lobbying for increased costs and regulations on EMCs, which only erect more barriers to the expansion of rural broadband.
The TRUTH is that SB 2 PROHIBITS cross subsidization to PROTECT EMC members and to ensure fair competition between providers, while also including strong consumer protections.
Your trusted local EMC has the FACTS about SB 2, and we encourage you to contact them if you have questions. Take action NOW by urging your State Representative to Vote YES: https://action.georgiaemc.com/actionalerts/
