NCTA Statement Regarding FCC and NTIA Nominations

“We congratulate Acting Chairwoman Rosenworcel on her nomination for a new term as the permanent Chair of the Federal Communications Commission. To date, Chairwoman Rosenworcel has served with distinction and ably led the Commission over the past 10 months as the country increasingly turned to the internet to adapt to pandemic demands. We also congratulate Gigi Sohn and Alan Davidson on their nominations to serve as FCC Commissioner and NTIA Administrator. If confirmed by the Senate, each of these individuals will play a critical role in the design of policy that will promote continued investment and innovation in wired and wireless broadband networks – including the growth of licensed and unlicensed platforms – and in supporting Congress’ clear direction to build next generation networks in unserved and underserved areas. We look forward to upcoming hearings and consideration of these important nominations in the weeks ahead.”
