Background: The White House yesterday nominated David Redl as the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s Assistant Secretary for Communication and Information.
This statement is attributable to USTelecom CEO Jonathan Spalter:
“The Commerce Department can play a vital role in expanding access to broadband networks and the vast benefits they offer to our digital economy. David Redl is the right person, at the right time, to champion leading-edge innovation and investment in our nation’s broadband infrastructure. We encourage the Senate to act swiftly in confirming him so he can begin the critical work of connecting Americans in all corners of the country to the promise and potential of broadband.”
