Statement of Michael Powell, President & CEO, NCTA – The Internet & Television Association Regarding Jessica Rosenworcel Being Named Acting Chair of the FCC

“We congratulate Commissioner Rosenworcel on being named Acting Chair of the FCC. Throughout her tenure at the Commission, Jessica has been keenly focused on promoting policies that ensure all Americans can be connected to the internet, especially students who need access for learning from home. She has also championed the FCC’s action to free up unlicensed spectrum that can supercharge our Wi-Fi networks. As America continues to wrestle with the pandemic, we stand ready to work with Acting Chair Rosenworcel and the entire Commission on policies that can help our nation stay productive during this crisis while beginning the road to recovery.”
