Background: Earlier today, the Senate confirmed current Federal Communications Commission General Counsel Brendan Carr and former Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel for a new term at the agency.
This statement can be attributed to USTelecom CEO Jonathan Spalter:
“Former Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel and current General Counsel Brendan Carr are committed public servants who will work tirelessly on behalf of consumers and innovators alike at the Federal Communications Commission. We look forward to Chairman Ajit Pai’s confirmation for a new term soon but are pleased that the Senate moved quickly to confirm these two dedicated nominees so the agency will once again have a full house. The full commission can count on USTelecom and its members to work with it to advance policies that promote network investment and close the digital divide to ensure all Americans, regardless of where they live, can access high-speed broadband internet service.”
