FCC Chairman talks internet access on the Coast
As part of a continued mission in closing the digital divide, the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission is on a week-long tour of the Southern Gulf States. News 25’s Gina Tomlinson caught up with him to get his take on the recent decision to repeal net neutrality and other stopics involving the FCC. Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai has a closer connection to the Coast after stopping in Gulfport and Pascagoula. News 25 caught up with Pai after touring the Coast Radio Group building in Gulfport. “It’s really impressive to see how getting online can really help everybody. Whether it’s the military base, we visited the Seabees this morning. We’re going to go to Pascagoula to see how the internet has been rebuilt after Hurricane Katrina.” During a week-long tour in the Southern Gulf States, Pai says the main point of discussion is how much impact internet access can have in communities big and small. “It’s critical for us to do everything we can to extend digital opportunities to everybody and that’s especially a problem in rural areas.” Pai says rural Mississippi could benefit from the FCC’s December vote to repeal the 2015 Net Neutrality Regulations, a decision that has targeted the FCC with lawsuits. “It’s already difficult enough to build a business case for installing the internet infrastructure that allows people to get online, more heavily regulated things out of Washington, the less likely it will be for companies to build up this infrastructure.” Net neutrality is the idea that all internet traffic should be treated equal, regardless if you’re checking Facebook, streaming a movie, or posting a picture on Instagram. It also means companies can’t favor their own content over their competitors. Democrats and net neutrality supports will attempt to restore the rules during a “force vote” May 9th, but the petition would have to pass through the House and avoid a veto from the president. “We’re hopeful in the time to come that people will see that our approach is the one that is going to produce much better digital opportunity for all Americans.”

Biloxi proclamation
Today, Biloxi Mayor Andrew ‘FoFo’ Gilich met with a Cuban official at Biloxi City Hall to discuss a variety of potential partnerships in Biloxi and the Mississippi Coast. Miguel Fraga was welcomed with open arms at Biloxi City Hall as he received a proclamation from Mayor Gilich. Fraga is the first secretary of the embassy of the Republic of Cuba in Washington, D.C. He hopes for improved relations between his country and the United States. “We’re trying to find opportunities for both countries. We believe the relations spent on good will between Cuba and the United States is the path we need to follow,” said Fraga. Mayor Gilich says both countries can benefit in a variety of ways from the partnership including future trade. “From tourism to commerce, all of these things became on the radar, and Miguel’s first visit down here is going to see every aspect of life and business opportunities here in Biloxi.” Both countries can benefit from medical exchanges. Fraga noted Cuba has a lung cancer vaccine that’s currently in New York. “Cuba has, right now, doctors in more than 60 countries. We have a good biotech industry. So, we need to find a way to do it, but there is a lot of potential for relation.” The topic of baseball came up in today’s proclamation. Hopefully, some things are in the works for the year of 2019. “Baseball is a passion for both countries. So, I’m sure that we can enjoy a wonderful tournament between Biloxi and Cuba,” said Fraga. Mayor Gilich said, “Baseball is huge. We are really excited about baseball as well as tourism and those kinds of things.” According to Fraga, Cuba received one million visitors from the United States last year. He believes this partnership will attract even more tourists to his country. “A lot of people here in the United States want to visit Cuba for many reasons, to see the old cars, to see the history there.” Fraga says the history between the Biloxi and Cuba brings them together since the founder of Biloxi is actually buried in Havana.
