Background: Today, the Senate confirmed Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai for a second term at the agency.
The following statement is from USTelecom CEO Jonathan Spalter:
“The Senate made the right call today. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s laser-sharp focus on closing the digital divide has the potential to make a significant difference in the lives of millions of Americans. At his core, he gets that broadband matters to our nation’s communities, be they large or small, urban or rural. The USTelecom community stands ready to work with him in the years ahead to promote more network investment and advance smart, common-sense policies that will put broadband first so that all Americans can access high-speed internet service, no matter where they live.”
