WASHINGTON, DC – The Senate confirmed Jessica Rosenworcel and Ajit Pai as FCC Commissioners. The following statement should be attributed to Jonathan Spalter, chairman of Mobile Future:
Yesterday’s confirmation of Jessica Rosenworcel and Ajit Pai comes not a moment to soon for our nation’s growing wireless economy. At a time of profound spectrum scarcity, when America’s continued global leadership in mobile innovation may hang in the balance, we urge the new Commissioners to give their highest priority to establishing a policy environment which will enable both new spectrum to come to market quickly and new investment in our mobile infrastructure to be made confidently. In the days ahead, all of us at Mobile Future look forward to supporting Ms. Rosenworcel and Mr. Pai, and their colleagues at the Commission in this urgent work.
