WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today the Senate confirmed the nominations of Jessica Rosenworcel and Ajit Pai to the Federal Communications Commission. The following statement can be attributed to Jerry James, CEO of COMPTEL.
“We applaud the Senate’s confirmation of Jessica Rosenworcel and Ajit Pai and welcome them to the FCC. Both have significant experience and expertise that will be an asset to the Commission in addressing important issues that must be decided. We look forward to working with them.
Robust competition in both the wholesale and retail markets are the cornerstones to increasing deployment and availability of broadband services. Our members have invested hundreds of millions of dollars in their networks, their advanced technology and growing their businesses to meet the increasing needs of their customers. To make strides in fostering innovation, job development and growth of broadband, the FCC must promote polices that make the communications market more robust and provide benefits to business and consumers across the nation.”
