Statement of Michael Powell, President & CEO, NCTA – The Internet & Television Association Regarding the Renomination of Mike O’Rielly to the FCC

“We congratulate Mike O’Rielly for his well-deserved renomination to the Federal Communications Commission. During his tenure at the FCC, Commissioner O’Rielly has successfully advocated for forward-looking policies that promote marketplace competition, remove unnecessary regulation and incent companies to expand services to ensure that every American can benefit from today’s digital economy. Mike deserves enormous credit for his leadership to urge the Commission to free up unlicensed spectrum to supercharge our Wi-Fi networks and unleash new technologies that can connect more consumers to the internet. We urge the Senate to quickly confirm Commissioner O’Rielly to a second term.”
