“As a former FCC Chairman who appreciates the incredible privilege and immense responsibility of overseeing the nation’s telecommunications sector, I want to thank and congratulate Chairman Genachowski for his outstanding leadership and remarkable accomplishments during his tenure.  During a period of tremendous economic turmoil and marketplace uncertainty, Chairman Genachowski established a future-focused agenda that promoted investment in networks and services that are now delivering important societal benefits to American consumers.  Chairman Genachowski wisely believed that ubiquitous Internet connectivity would be the defining technology of our day, and his leadership has ensured that America’s robust wired and wireless broadband networks are world class.  The entire cable industry is grateful to Chairman Genachowski for his exceptional leadership.  We look forward to working closely with the current and future leadership of the Commission.”
